Or even some kind of stretchy suede-looking jersey material might work. Then it could be stamped in gold ink. We could sell a tassel along with it as a set.

Has anyone numbers, how well the gospel sells (how big was the first edition anyway?)?

That happened to me too, I had to go to two stores trying to find it. I didn't tell them to move it to the religious section but I will next time I go to a book store.

I know you're laughing about it, but isn't "The Gospel" being excluded from the religious section just as serious of a violation as FSMism being excluded from ID-teaching science classrooms?

How can you want the same considerations as other religions on one front, yet care less about this?

I honestly believe that we SHOULD cause enough of a ruckus to have "The Gospel" placed in the religious section of bookstores worldwide!

They sell the Simon necronomicon at a local borders... It's in the same section as the books on Wiccans, Neo Paganism, and some various bizar candle/acupuncture related therapy. This section is ironicly directly across from the bibles.

Edit: Forgot to comment on the actual topic he he, that's rather exiting, I hope to see a hard cover and soft cover version of the gospel soon.
