Talking Jesus doll stirs debate

Oy vey.

"The battery-powered, button-activated doll is able to recite a handful of different bible verses and the story of Jesus feeding the multitudes with five loaves and two fish. It also comes with a booklet giving parents tips on how to shape a child's faith."

"But Mark Linongello, who goes to Catholic Church, said anything telling kids about Christianity is good. "As a doll, at least they're getting to know Him," Linongello said."

How did you get to know Jesus? As an action figure?

"My Jesus doll teaches me Bible verses."
"My GIJoe just killed your Jesus doll."
"Did not."
"Did too!"

Wow, we want to know Jesus but we forget about weensy things like the second commandment.

Are the people who want Jesus dolls the same people who want the Ten Commandments posted?

Oh, good grief, Charlie Brown.

Linus can tell it more clearly, I'm sure!!

Most disturbing - "the booklet giving parents tips on how to shape a child's faith." I think a book - THE BIBLE would be more than sufficient and preferred.

Obviously, Cynthia, you have NO VISION for this kind of opportunity!
