The mega toy retailer, Wal-Mart- is now selling Biblical toys like the talking Jesus

Will the Muslims demand they also sell talking Muhammads? How about a talking Buddha? :roll:

Needless to say, I won't be buying a talking anything from Wal-Mart!

jesus is a brand, and that's pretty much it. Wal-Mart will sell it because it will make money. If they thought Mohammad toys would make money, they would sell them as well (but I think you aren't supposed to make replicas of Mohammad..) This won't be the first time Wal-Mart sold morality. I'm not sure if they still do it, but when I was a teen-ager, WM only sold edited music, you couldn't buy true versions of any song or album until it had been edited for profanity. Barf.

I just loved this quote from that article:
Quote:
“I think the market is ready,” Socha explains. “It’s the boomerang effect. There is such a plethora of ‘evil’ or non-moral toys, and the market is void of faith-based toys that teach about Christianity.”


Wonder which toys they designate as evil?

The question is, "In what isle do you sell the Talking Jesus?"

Action figure along with Dragonball-Z or Barbies to go along with Ken?

Have no idea which isle, but I bet talking Jesus is white.

Lefty is right about this being a brand name now. Jesus productions.

How come it's not considered sacrilege or a heresy to sell jesus in any form?

If his darn message is supposed to be so free and available, so should his likeness! Hell, didn't he give of himself, freely?

On a related tangent: how long before they make jesus fortune cookies?

Jesus fortune cookies. Love it!

Since the New Testiment said we are not to make any image of anything on earth or the sky, I would say 'talking Jesus' is against Bible teachings.

Jesus fortune cookies would be the perfect fundie gift to the world, since they are so keen at speaking on out of context biblical quotes.

And why would a kid need a talkin' jesus, when all they need is a doll that says, "I love you!"? (Or for that matter, the Jack in the Box head.)

Talking Jesus goes along with those little fetus dolls. Those are given out to all the children in our schools.

No religion in schools? Tell me another one...
