Moral Dilemma

One of the things I learned from my mother is never to turn down freebies. If, for example, someone is giving out samples of granola bars or toothpaste or whatever on the street or at a festival, she will make an effort to walk past them several times to get a bunch of samples.

Last night's commute home was a pain. The 5:20 bus never showed up and the 5:35 got stuck in traffic. So it was late and I was grumpier than normal. There was a group of people singing Christmas carols at the exit from the metro station. They were also giving out "free gifts." (Er, if it isn't free, it isn't a gift, but that is another rant.) I accepted a canvas shopping bag.

That's something useful but it has a quote on it. A New Testament quote.

Do I:
a) toss the bag
b) give it to someone who agrees with it
c) use it anyway?

Or is there some way to embroider over the quote and nativity scene on the bag?
