Talk about taking Christ out of Christmas.
The Marines’ Toys for Tots campaign in Los Angeles has decided to turn down a donation of 4,000 dolls, on the grounds that the $20 dolls look like Jesus and quote Scripture.
“We can’t take a chance on sending a talking Jesus doll to a Jewish family or a Muslim family,” said Bill Grein, an executive with Toys for Tots.
Perhaps not content with igniting a month’s worth of talk-radio harangues, Grein went on to add: “Kids want a gift for the holiday season that is fun.”
