Walmart to Sell Bible Action Figures: This is Not a Joke.

Walmart will begin selling Bible action figures aimed at Christian parents who would rather their children play with Noah, Samson and Moses rather than comic book characters (Satan!). The toys are made by the company one2believe (as a reminder, not a joke). David Socha the Executive Director said: "If you're very religious, it's a battle for your children's minds and what they're playing with and pretending. There are remakes out there of Satan and evil things," Socha said.

The toys, based on biblical stories, include a 3-inch figure of Daniel in the lion's den, a 12-inch talking Jesus doll and 13-inch Samson action figure. This just makes me feel sorry for whoever has to play with these, but...

Do I really need another reason to not shop at Walmart?
