California evangelist Ray Comfort recently promoted his ministry's Bible tracts, which are used to convert people to Christianity.
The tracts appear to be Starbucks gift cards, driver's licenses and credit cards, noted the Friendly Atheist.
But the cards are fake and display proselytizing messages on the back.
Comfort recently told people via Facebook, "How do you give out this tract? You just drop it. That’s all."
The fake cards are sold in stacks of 100 on the Living Waters ministry website for $8, but neither the website or Comfort inform people that littering is a crime in California and elsewhere.
