Toys for Tots flip-flops on talking Jesus dolls


Toys for Tots has announced it has decided to take the talking Jesus dolls from Christian toymakers one2believe, their spokesman announcing, “Toys for Tots has found appropriate places for these items.” I’m assuming they don’t mean the city dump, so have they in fact figured out a way to ensure that these dolls only end up with Christian families? Or is this just simple cowardice in the face of Christian outrage over being prevented from proseltyzing everyone’s kids whether their parents approve or not?

    Since the story got some publicity, I wouldn’t doubt they were contacted by a church group with an outlet for the toys. Since seeing Jesus Camp, I’m sure there are a lot of kids who would love to get one–although it would have been a big disappointment in my house when I was a kid–even though we went to a conservative church every Sunday.
