(Newser) – Costco is trying to wriggle out of an inadvertent theological debate it entered this week with an apology. The flap began when a pastor in California's Simi Valley spotted a Bible for sale with a label of "fiction," reports the LA Times. After Caleb Kaltenbach's resulting Twitter post started drawing attention nationally, the retailer explained to Fox News that a distributor "mislabeled a small percentage of the Bibles." But it also took responsibility for not catching the mistake, adding, "We greatly apologize for the error." (Read more Costco stories.)
