Quote# 71500

One time I went into a Border's bookstore in a mall and couldn't BELIEVE the ridiculous number of witchcraft books available, placed in a very prominent spot.

Outraged, I stepped to the cashier's counter and asked them why Border's was carrying such DARK, DARK material. I promptly got brushed-off. The clerk didn't even look me in the eye, but kept her head lowered over the cash register and mumbled something about not being able to help what books management ordered.

I told her to tell "management" it was NOT appreciated for them to stack those kinds of books (The Satanic Bible, for one) in a prominent spot, so that every teenager that walked in would see it!!!!!!!!! I told her they shouldn't even ORDER those kinds of books because it is influencing the younger generation!!! She just basically ignored me.

So long as IT SELLS, they don't give a hoot!!!!!!! The Almighty Dollar is what counts!!! I wish MORE people would complain and/or boycott those stores selling GARBAGE.

Honestly, when I was a teenager (okay, back in Prehistoric Times, lolol), if a store carried a book like that, there would be a Lynching Party!!!!!!!!!!!

Fortunately people now realize that doing so is barbaric and cruel and inhuman. Good for them.

...Honey, the fantasy section is harmless. I know this is hard for you to understand, but those books aren't evil.

The Satanic Bible, really? Was that next to the "How to Survive a Zombie Attack" book? As in the "These books are for teh lulz" books?

It could be the LeVayan Satanic Bible, which KIND OF is a "for teh lulz" book, fairly atheistic philosophy with some mocking thrown in for good measure.

As for the actual quote....

"The Almighty Dollar is what counts!!"

Yeah, that's capitalism for you, what are you? SOME KIND OF PINKO COMMUNIST AMERICA HATER?!?1/1/1//11SHIFT+1=!!!!!!

That's why we call the times you grew up in the "prehistoric times", because people weren't smart enough to appreciate the written word, much alone write it.

Sweetie, the only people that could afford book were those that had the money.

Yeah, and they had "white" and "colored" drinking fountains back then, too. Too bad you're living in a free country ... you'd be lot happier in a Christian version of North Korea.

I don't think this person would have cared so much if it was the Bible sitting there, influencing the younger generation.

Hey, at least we can prove it actually exists

Or they want to cater to as wide an audience as possible. If you don't want to see books like that in stores, go to a Christian book store. Yes, people raised enough of a stink that they started stores that cater to people just like you.

And I doubt there was lynching when you were a teenager. Also, teenagers are a bit smarter than to allow themselves to convert solely because they saw a book in a bookstore. Even they need a little peer pressure and the desire to rebel against their parents (but that's generally just a phase they go through in order to establish themselves as independent people from their parents).

Somewhere in middle America, a part-time Borders cashier has a funny anecdote.

Ah, yes, the lynching parties. How I miss the good old days.

aww, don't worry, you can hold a lynching party in your basement

start the fun yourself, and jesus'll show up soon enough

She just basically ignored me.

Good. All employees should ignore a batshit twit such as yourself. "Wah wah I want to demolish everyone that doesn't believe what I believe!!" And then you actually brought up lynching parties....WOW, yet at the same time it's really not shocking coming from RR.

Funny, usually I have to spend a good twenty minutes looking for them, and I STILL had to D/L an "underground" copy of the Satanic Bible. And I found my copy of the Necronomicon in a used book store.

Someone's lying, and I seem to recall back in my Catholic days, a little something about bearing false witness....

I sincerely hope the poor clerk posts this on Not Always Right, this NEEDS to be there!

Why do you hate America so much? Go back to North Korea, commie.

Yet we're the immoral ones.

You are STILL in prehistoric times you idiot. And dont worry about the minds of teenagers, I suspect their minds are far and away more mature than yours is. They can handle it.

Yes and back in your prehistoric times, they'd spray blacks fighting for their rights with fire hoses. Such "good" times weren't they?

I remember checking out at the Satanic Bible by Anton LaVey at my local book store when I was in high school. That was in the early 70s for fuck sakes.
Did you grow up during the 19th century?

Of course the clerk tried to avoid eye contact with you, that's what you do to avoid people from attacking you when they're in an agitated state. Obviously the sales clerk had no control over ordering, and she told you that politely, but you had to bitch her out anyway. I don't care how old or outraged you are, you were incredibly rude to that woman. Maybe you should take a look at your own behaviour before you start decrying the fall of morality.

Reading the thread, some of the other commenters pointed out that she shouldn't of yelled at the sales clerk so she backtracked and said she didn't yell, she just asked nicely. Reading the original comment, I highly doubt that was the case.

Nice to know solidarity of abused retail workers transcends religion.

Lynching parties? Wow you ARE old.....

WAAAAAAAAAAAH, they're carrying books that show religions other than my death cult sect of Christianity!
