More people unclear on that whole ” Thou Shalt Not Steal” concept :
With the recession, shoplifting is on the rise, according to booksellers. At BookPeople in Austin, Tex., the rate of theft has increased to approximately one book per hour. I asked Steve Bercu, BookPeoples owner, what the most frequently stolen title was.
The Bible, he said, without pausing.
Apparently the thieves have not yet read the Thou shalt not steal part or maybe they believe that Bibles dont need to be paid for. Some people think the word of God should be free, Bercu said. As it turns out, Bibles are snatched even at the Parable Christian Store in Springfield, Ore., the manager told me, despite the fact that if a person asks for a Bible, theyll be given a copy without charge.
Maybe these Bible-stealers are headed to the service at St Lawrence in York, England .
