MANCHESTER, Mo. (KMOX) - A former teacher is upset to find the Bible on the fiction book table at the Costco in Manchester.

It’s the same kind of controversy that sparked debate in California.

Mary-Margaret Meyers-Walker says she was deeply offended, saying, first of all, the Bible is not fiction.

“Jesus is a true person, whether anyone wants to believe in the faith, he was a true person,” Meyers-Walker told KMOX News.

She says, however, it was surrounded by books like Grimm’s Fairy Tales.

“I even offered to hand carry each Bible over to the correct spot,” said Meyers-Walker.

She went to the Manchester store because she heard about the same controversy at a Costco in California.

She said she called a regional management office, which told her the Manchester store apparently didn’t get the memo to move the Bible.

She plans to return to the store Thursday morning and says if the store refuses to move the Bible out of the fiction section she may ask Christians to boycott.

Local management would not comment to KMOX, but the corporate office has issued an apology to some national media.
