A talking Jesus doll has been turned down by the Marine Reserves’ Toys for Tots program.
A suburban Los Angeles company offered to donate 4,000 of the 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.
But the charity balked because of the dolls’ religious nature.
Toys are donated to kids based on financial need and "we don’t know anything about their background, their religious affiliations," said Bill Grein, vice president of Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, in Quantico, Va.
Do Jews and Muslims give toys on Christmas? The Marine’s Toy for Tots Mission statement says they "Distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted." Political correctness where Jesus dolls are outlawed on Jesus’ birthday is exactly the type of contradictions we expect today. It is just so dangerous to have proselytizing plastic doll’s converting children against their parents will. Talking Jesus dolls are scarier then an alive Chucky doll to many secular parents.
The company that provides these dolls also makes other ones from the Old and New Testament. Too bad they don’t have an Abraham doll since that would be acceptable for Christian, Jewish, and Muslim children. They could donate them instead and see what excuse they come up with next.
