Here's a quick story. I live in a town where there is literally four churches at an intersection. No mosques, no temples, no synagogues or anything other then christian. Nope..four protestant churches.
Anyway, I went to the local mall yesterday because I plan on reading several religious texts. I'm working on the bible again, I want to read the koran, and maybe something on Buddhism.
I'm rambling again..Anyway, I went to the book store in the mall to find a good copy of the Koran. It took me a good 20 minutes to find one, and there was only one version. A very small, paperback version translated by some guy that isn't important. I asked the person working at the book store if they had, or could order any other copy that seemed a little better. They literally only had this one version, and only one in stock. Meanwhile, in the same section, they had an entire shelf filled with many various versions of the bible.
well, I bought the copy of the Koran that didn't look to reliable..I guess just to make a point. That I was interested in other religions then Christianity, and I wanted the person at the book store to see that.
"Sigh", I even got funny looks from the other patrons at the store. It's no surprise really, considering I've lived in the same town for 22 years and haven't met anyone who was not a christian there.
