This may sound like pro-religion news, but it’s really not: Wal-Mart is going to sell Jesus action figures.
Maybe it is spreading religious mythology through cheap general stores, but it is also the commodification of a religious hero…so it’s devaluing Jesus.
The other thing to consider is what perverse little kids do with their dolls. Get Barbie and Ken alone in the bedroom, and swooosh, off come the clothes, here come the interesting poses, and ooooh, Ken, can my friend Midge come and play, too? Now Jesus gets to join in the action.
I hope the Jesus action figure is anatomically accurate, too. Otherwise he won’t be allowed to go to church (see Deuteronomy 23:2).
