You think stealing from grocery stores is evil, how about libraries? Last I checked we lost between 50 and 100 books a year where I work now and almost 400 a year at New Mexico Tech. What the hell? we loan them for free.
It's like stealing from a church or orphanage to me, but I guess some have a different outlook on things.
ABE - last year someone swiped our KJV Bible right out of reference.

Then we have Darwinists who think it nothing to steal the credit of creation and appearance of design and give it to their wacko ideas (natural selection). Again, these thieves have no conscience whatsoever.
How could one steal "the appearance of design?" This may be the stupidest thing I have ever seen posted in this forum.

Think you forgot to add fast food 'restaurants.' Less than one month of MacDonalds damn near killed Morgan Spurlock.
