Toys for Tots Program Rejects Talking Jesus Dolls

Bible-quoting toymaker surprised its offer of 4,000 dolls was turned down

According to one2believe’s Web site, the button-activated, bearded Jesus doll recites Scripture such as “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again” and “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

Bill Grein, vice president of Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, in Quantico, Va., said the offer was turned down because Toys for Tots doesn’t know anything about the religious affiliations of the children who receive its gifts.

Grein said Tuesday, “Kids want a gift for the holiday season that is fun.”

I dont see why no - Disney produces Hercules dolls and toys. It's about time Jesus joins the line of ancient fictional god-figures.
Maybe somebody can create the full line - over 1,000. Collect them all, Zeus, Mars, Venus, Jesus.
Maybe a tv cartoon featurin a young Jesus in High school, with his slutty girlfriend Mary, and his 12 friends - that would be cool.
