Barbie Meets Jesus

The subject above is the headline in the "Inside the Beltway" section of the April 26 Washington Times. The text of the article is below:

The Beverly Hills Teddy Bear Co., creators of dolls such as Shrek and the Grinch Who Stole Christmas, announces a new line of interactive Bible characters that promise to entertain children while engaging them in Bible stories. "It's always been on my heart to do this, and now we finally have the right talent and right people to make a doll line of the greatest people ever to walk the earth," says David Socha, founder of the company and creator of the Messengers of Faith dolls. Initially, dolls depicting Jesus Christ, David, Moses, Esther and Mary are being produced, with additional Biblical characters to be released in the future.

If we can't get kids to believe in Jesus, at least we can get them to play with Him...?
