Toying with religion

First, Tbogg brings our attention to the talking Jesus doll. No joke, 100% for real.

A talking Jesus doll is due to go on sale in May, along with versions of Moses, the Virgin Mary and David, as a teddy bear maker tries to find a market with churches and religious families.

The foot-tall Jesus doll will be able to recite five Biblical verses at the push of button on its back, while the Moses doll will recite the Ten Commandments. The Mary doll will recite a long Bible verse.
I wouldn't be surprised if churches were giving these away with a copy of Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ. Should that not be available, maybe this would be a via alternative?

In any case, if action figures aren't your thing, maybe you can get your kids into the Bible via the wonderful world of Legos. (Courtesy my friend Patrick).
