Jesus Dolls

In the news, when it rains, it pours. Just saw this CNN report about a company that wants to donate Jesus dolls through a nonprofit to poor kids. The dolls talk and recite Bible verses. Toys for Tots, the charity, fortunately had the courage to reject these "gifts."

I just don't see how these fundies are unable to see this stunt for what it is--arrogant and totally inappropriate. Kids should just be kids; they shouldn't have religion forced down their throats. Kids who play with dolls are not old enough to make solid decisions about what they believe. It's downright sick that these fundies are using their money to force a religion on kids who are too poor to even afford toys.

How would they like it if we gave Hindu Vishnu dolls to poor Christian children?
