Bible loctaed in the non-fiction section?

I went to the library a few days ago to check out some books on religion to further my studies. I found it amusing when I came across the Bible parked close to The God Delusion in the non-fiction section.
I told one of the librarians that It was placed in the wrong section, and she immediately became offended/defensive. I then told her to look up the definition of non-fiction in a dictionary and get back to me. I was asked to leave...

A word definition, you implied that she was clueless about it, and you got a defensive response, and you are surprised? As RFiveDFour said in another post, she has no control over how books are categorized. Your telling her to look up the definition of non-fiction and then get back to her sounds like boorish behavior to me.
