The Marine Corps Toys for Tots program in Los Angeles has declined the donation of 4,000 Bible-quoting Jesus dolls.
A spokesman for the Marines said they didn't want to take the chance of sending a talking Jesus doll to a Jewish family or Muslim family.
I don't see what the problem is with that. Are we forgetting that Jesus was a Jew and that Muslims consider Jesus a great prophet?
The bigger problem for me is exactly how does one 'play' with a Jesus doll?
Barbie has her clothes and sports car and dream house. GI Joe has his Jeeps and tanks and weaponry, not to mention the infamous 'kung-fu grip.'
When you get a Jesus doll are the disciples extra? Are there tiny loaves and fishes? How about some lepers?
What kid wouldn't want to while away the hours having action figure Jesus cure some lepers?
I'm betting the cross and burial shroud also are extra
