[Complaining about non-Christians shoving their lifestyle down his throat]

I mean you can't go into a store and find ruby red grapefruit juice. But you can surely find stacks and stacks of Heinaken and Budweiser. That space could be used for Bibles.

What stores are you looking in? I know I can find all types of fruit juice at my stores, and I can't stand grapefruit juice.

Also: free market, bitch. A store could well put Bibles where they keep the booze, but people generally don't go into grocery/other food stores to find Bibles, so, somehow, I doubt there'd be much demand, and the whole thing with capitalism is that stores are going to sell what people will buy.

Seriously, that's kind of like saying that the place where grocery stores keep their food could be used to store volumes of the Harry Potter series- it could, but it seems kind of stupid to put them there.

And that's not even touching on the stupidity of the idea that merely selling beer is somehow "atheist"- I know plenty of Christians who drink beer, and there are plenty of atheists who aren't all that into the booze. I suppose you are right in that it is "non-Christian," though, given that, like most other products, beer is pretty secular. That's kind of like saying that selling watermelons is "non-Christian"- it's not exactly Christian, is it? Hell, your precious ruby-red grapefruit juice is pretty damn secular, too.

Well what do you expect when you go grocery shopping in a Liquor Store?!

I assure you, my local grocery does indeed stock ruby red grapefruit. Also, I would assume someone looking for Bibles in the Heineken got lost on the way to a book store.

Where the hell do you live that the supermarkets don't carry red grapefruit juice?

The space occupied by churches could be used as homeless shelters.

If you're going to a grocery store that doesn't have grapefruit juice but has stacks and stacks of beer... that's not the grocery store. That's the booze store.

Oh and the GOLDEN THRONE that the Pope sits on could feed thousands.

But thankfully it is being used for something far less harmful. No one has ever tried to justify depriving others of their civil rights based on something from a beer label.

I don't like alcohol too much. But I'd rather have people drink than read the Babble. Because after a good night sleep you usually come to your senses.

How do we go from grapefruit juice to Bibles?

Bibles are readily available in both Christian and secular bookstores. I don't know about grapefruit juice because I prefer orange juice. Make of that what you will.

Ruby red grapefruit juice is not available over here; too much artificial coloring, but you can find orangy-red grapefruit juice in most grocery stores. What you can't find is "Heinaken" and Budweiser, not with more than 2,5 percent alcohol. For that you need to go to the liquor store.

I think you can find Bibles in larger grocery stores, the ones that carry almost everything home-related (including patio furnitures and Weber grills); they usually have a book department. They still don't sell alcoholic beverages, tough.

What do these people want?
"Excuse me, heathen, where are the Bibles?"
"Aisle 3,4,5,6 and 7"
"Why not aisle 1 and 2?!!!"

Honestly, it's not that they practically give Bibles away, it's that they literally give Bibles away! Where the Hell do you people ever get the idea there's a shortage of Bibles?

You can't drink Bibles.

I mean you can't go into a store and find ruby red grapefruit juice.
I'm sure you actually can. Look harder.
But you can surely find stacks and stacks of Heinaken and Budweiser.
And your point is...? Christians aren't forbidden from drinking alcohol.
That space could be used for Bibles.

Are you seriously complaining about "non-Christians shoving their lifestyle down your throat" and offering a solution in stacking the shop aisles with Bibles?
