As a government entity, Marines "don't profess one religion over another," Grein said Tuesday. "We can't take a chance on sending a talking Jesus doll to a Jewish family or a Muslim family."
Michael La Roe, director of business development for both companies, said the charity's decision left him "surprised and disappointed."
"The idea was for them to be three-dimensional teaching tools for kids," La Roe said. "I believe as a churchgoing person, anyone can benefit from hearing the words of the Bible."
The kids don't want a viral teaching tool to convert them. They want a toy to play with. Can you imagine?
On second thought, it should be a package deal. They really ought to have representatives for a bunch of major religions in a playset. The kids can do what we did with our action figures when I was a kid -- make the dolls fight it out to determine which religion will prevail!
Look, they guy even admitted it isn't a toy. It's a tool to push an agenda. Don't you love it when people use kids to further their own cause?
A Man and His Snake
A man pulled over for driving under the influence threatened the officer with a poisonous snake.
I wasn't aware that O.J. had actually given up on that whole "I didn't do it" thing. Sure, it could merely be a callous and crass grab for attention and money, trading off the deaths of his ex-wife (the mother of his children) and her friend. But who would do something like that? Probably not the same kind of person who would actually, you know, be involved with the murders.
Correct me if I'm out on a limb here, but not too many widowers try to get on TV fantasizing about how they "would have" done it. You couldn't make a movie out of this because nobody would believe it.
