  • Years ago I visited with a woman who sold biblical toys, action figures of Bible characters like Moses, David and Goliath and Jesus.

    The Jesus doll, about twice the size of a G.I. Joe, had movable fingers and joints, and if you pressed a button on Jesus’ back he talked.

    As the woman demonstrated, Jesus started reciting Bible verses -- and wouldn’t stop.

    I was there to interview the woman for a newspaper story and tried to have a conversation with her but couldn’t concentrate because Jesus wouldn’t stop talking.
