Quote# 38533

Recently, I have had some health issues that have kept my world pretty small. Last Sunday, after church, I had the occasion to visit several stores that I wouldn't have normally gone. I was absolutely shocked by how people were behaving and what they were selling. The amount of books on Satanism and Wiccans just shocked me, and these books were directly acrossed from the Christian section. The Christian section which use to be huge is half the size it was! Then the behavior of the people in the stores. The children standing up in the carts and screaming and the parents simply ignoring them. While I admit that my life is a little sheltered, I still felt that I went to sleep one night on one planet and woke up the next morning in some other horrible place! When did this all happen?

I truly doubt the amount of books on Satanism or Paganism would outnumber the Christian books in nearly any store. Even in my lovely liberal state of Massachusetts.

Tolerate other religions, fucker.

About 100,000 years ago.

Seriously, you're shocked at the sight of a child acting up? Really?

You must have been slumbering a loooong time. I used to get screaming fits in stores when I was a small kid, and I'm over forty years old now. My parents didn't ignore me, however, they picked me up and left the store in a hurry.

If you usually don't go to book-stores, what right have you to question their supply? They sell what people buy, it's as easy as that. If you and your Christian buddies were buying more Christian books, then the Christian section would be larger.
As it is now, it's mostly kids interesting in manga, fantasy or science fiction, that buy books.

I can't remember seeing any satanist books or Wiccan books in any of my book-store excursions. And believe you me, they ARE frequent. I visit a book-store at least once a month, often once a week. And we are often buying books online, me and my husband, almost once a month. Each package containing at least five books. (OK, it has happened that we only buy one or two books, but that is the anomaly.)

Not to mention if you're in an area of Christian majorities there are Christian book stores and regular stores find they don't have that many sales as uptight religious folk buy their fiction there.

I swear these people are just going into major book store chains to get upset about the Christian supply. And ya never hear kids screaming or crying or acting up in church?

Confirmation bias, anyone?
