“Jesus wept.” Joh 11:35

US Marines bow to pressure with Talking Jesus Dolls

Toys for Tots,  has decided to put the Christ doll back into Christmas, after all.

Reversing a move the Herald and other media outlets reported earlier this week, the charity has agreed to accept 4,000 talking Jesus dolls from a California toymaker.

Toys for Tots, which gives poor kids of all faiths gifts for Christmas and other winter holidays, had originally rejected the donation.

The group feared the dolls – which recite Bible passages such as “Whoever believes in Him shall not perish” – would offend any non-Christian kids who got them.

But amid thousands of protest e-mails and calls, Toys for Tots – a private charity overseen by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve – yesterday relented.

“In hindsight, we should have taken these items and found appropriate homes for them,” group Vice President Brian Murray said.

Murray said religious groups have agreed to distribute the dolls to Christian kids. [source].
