Why Do The Marines Hate Jesus?

Oh, my. This should set a few winger headsa-poppin’.

A talking Jesus doll has been turned down by the Marine Reserves’ Toys for Tots program.

A Los Angeles company offered to donate 4,000 of the 1 foot-tall dolls, which quote Bible verses, for distribution to needy children this holiday season. The battery-powered Jesus is one of several dolls manufactured by one2believe, a division of the Valencia-based Beverly Hills Teddy Bear Co., based on biblical figures.

But the charity balked because of the dolls’ religious nature.

Toys are donated to kids based on financial need and “we don’t know anything about their background, their religious affiliations,” said Bill Grein, vice president of Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, in Quantico, Virginia.

As a government entity, Marines “don’t profess one religion over another,” Grein said Tuesday. “We can’t take a chance on sending a talking Jesus doll to a Jewish family or a Muslim family.”

  1. Love that Jesus! What a card. I wonder which bible quotes he spouts when you pull his string. Something about “love thy neighbor as thy self”? Anyway, good for the marines. I’m glad that they are more constitution-minded than their commander-in-chief.

  2. Good thing Toys For Tots are done by the Marines – the Air Force would have taken less than a second to accept them.

    (snark) Bill, Bill, Bill, you poor, thick-headed softie, that was the fucking point. If they are poor, well fuck, they are probably lazy and stupid and brown and not real Christians so they need to be saved. Because everyone knows that once you are saved you won’t be poor anymore…well spiritual at least, can’t really help with the money part though…these children will just have to pull themselves out of poverty by their own bootstraps. Remember Jesus saves and its his birthday!

  4. You dick heads dont HAVE A CLUE… THE POLITICAL CORRECT CROWD HAS SO VILLIFIED CHRISTIANITY; THE MARINES AND THE REST OF THE MILITARY ARE UNDER PRESSURE NOT TO DO ANYTHING THAT MIGHT OFFEND ANYBODY… ASSWIPES…

  5. They’ve already rescinded that decision — now the Marines are taking them after all.
    Pussies.

  6. Isn’t a Jesus doll a big violation of commandment ‘You shall not make for yourself an idol…’. I’m just sayin’…

  7. The same fundamentailists who buy this doll call a statue by Michaelangelo “idolatry.”
    Apparently, images of Jesus are okay as long as they’re really, really tacky.

  8. if i were a kidlet, rich or poor, the LAST thing i’d want as a present would be a talking jesus doll. how on earth is that FUN for a kid?
    the only saving grace is that plastic dolls like that are quite flammable and they make a very very pleasant whuuup whuup noise as they melt.

  9. It’s not vilification of Christianity to refuse to send to kids who are not Christian a toy which is not appropriate for them. All Americans are created equal – not identical. There are better ways of demonstrating Christian compassion than with some tacky toy that even Christian children might turn up their noses at.

  10. ” Apparently, images of Jesus are okay as long as they’re really, really tacky.”
    Actually, I think it’s that they’re okay as long as virtuous people hold the copyright on them. Michelangelo was hardly the model Christian.

  11. I take it that y’all missed the Bobble head Jesus Doll. Some models even come with “saving arm action” where you can push a button and the arms are extended heavenward.
    “With awesome gliding action this Jesus Christ action figure will make you the hit at any party. Just check out the jubilation at this party once the Jesus action figure showed up. ”
    As a Catholic, I’m starting to feel that we are loosing our market edge on tacky.

  12. Oh, to reciprocate, could another religion give in a Bobble Head doll of their choice quoting religious sayings of their faith?
    Just imagine the joy on the face of little Johnny’s parents as he opens up his ____________ doll voicing sayings of ________________.

  13. Like Doctor Seuss Christmas has nothing 2 do with toys or wizzles or wazzles ,it’s acelebration of Jesus not Santa Claus,it’s his birthday not the secular world,rejection of anything 2 do with Jesus is a rejection of the true meaning of Christmas
