You beat me to it.

I wonder what ever did happen? I think a Bible can be an appropriate gift for someone you are involved with, BUT I think, unless she was in a a very tight financial situation, she should have also bought him another gift. Just my personal opinion.

I don't care if it is materialistic. I bust my hump and dipped into my savings for her. She picked up a free book one Sunday morning. Its cheap. I don't care what she believes in, but the gift of giving is not one of her values.
Then why are you with her? If you don't respect her heart-felt beliefs, how do you respect her?

I hope she dumped him by now. I'm sure God must have better plans and a better boyfriend for her!!

She is trying to get me inducted into her church thing, and tells me that we can't get engaged unless I do, and bla bla bla. However, did she really just get me nothing for Christmas? Please tell me they are selling them for atleast over 50 dollars?

So, according to you, love is measuerd in dollars spent?? Your poor girlfriend.
When you give anyone anything, it should be done with a spirit of wanting to give, not with some inappropriate attachment as to what they will give you in return.
