Attention Walmart Shoppers

What cheapens the meaning of Christmas more: someone greeting you with “Happy Holidays!” or this:
Talking Jesus Action Figure Sells Out At Walmart

If you were planning on getting a Talking Jesus Action Figure this Christmas (or whatever) you're almost out of luck. Walmart has completely sold out of the toy and Target.com has "very limited supply," according to the manufacturer's spokesperson, Joshua Livingston.

According to the Dallas Morning News, “almost 20 percent of the Wal-Mart stores that sell Talking Jesus are in Texas.” Why does that not surprise me?

Note to conservative Christians: if you’re worried about a perceived “war on Christianity,” and you’re selling a talking Jesus action figure, you’ve already lost!

Lord protect us from these fools who insist on making money from the Christian faith. Religion is not a money-maker--at least, it shouldn’t be, not if you’re doing the “religion” part right.
