Talking Jesus Dolls Cast Out By Charity

POSTED: 3:01 pm EST November 14, 2006

LOS ANGELES -- A charity could have had 4,000 talking Jesus dolls, just in time for the holiday season.

But Toys for Tots is taking a pass.

The 4-foot-tall dolls were being offered to the charity by the Southern California company that makes them. The battery-powered doll quotes Bible verses.

But Toys for Tots won't take them because of their religious nature.

One official with the charity said it hands out toys based on a family's financial need. He said it can't risk "sending a talking Jesus doll to a Jewish family or a Muslim family."
