Toys for Tots rejects talking Jesus dollsTopics: Faith
CNN has reported that a talking Jesus doll has been turned down by the Marine Reserves' Toys for Tots program.
A Los Angeles company offered to donate 4,000 of the 1-foot-tall dolls, which quote Bible verses, for distribution to needy children this holiday season. The battery-powered Jesus is one of several dolls manufactured by one2believe, a division of the Valencia-based Beverly Hills Teddy Bear Co., based on biblical figures.
Incredibly, the charity balked because of the dolls' religious nature. I guess I've had it all wrong - all along. I always thought that Christmas was suppose to be "religious" in nature.
My brother just reminded me that last year Walmart had it all wrong but corrected it after they got boycotted for taking Christmas out of Christmas. I hate to put Toys for Tots in a pickle, but perhaps they need a similar message.
Don Singleton wonders it Toys for Tots will take jihadi dolls.
