Is That a Bible in Your Pocket or Are You Just Happy About Jesus?

A sex shop turned Bible store struggles to keep it up:

"We'd go three or four days and maybe make $4 or $5. You can't keep a store open like that."

Until the property sells, Braithwaite said, he will be at the store only on Thursdays in case a customer shows up.

Some of the Christian community that had condemned Braithwaite's porn shop will not support his Bible store even after they've embraced him as one of their own through baptism. Forgive and forget?

Funny thing is, the porn shop was highly successful in a county that is 'rife with churches'. Perhaps the moral elite are no less deviant than the rest of us.
