How did this story make headlines anyway, complete with a picture of the woman and a map to the store? Can we say witch hunt all together? I will buy the woman a Bible and it won't be from Barnes & Not Noble, as we call the chain already.

God and His Word say that stealing is wrong. Stealing a Bible is somehow refreshing...I mean, at least she was stealing something of immeasurable value and worth.

I would truly like to meet this woman, take her to pick out the Bible of her choice and a Christian bookstore, and then invite her to my awesome church in West Cobb. Seriously.

Again, while I don't condone stealing, I am all for one of God's people trying to do the right thing...even though she went about it in the wrong way.

immeasurable value and worth? If you call fables immeasurable, OK. They can't pay my electric bill.
