Listen for yourself and see if you too have “religious right” ears
Jan Markell of the end-times movement Olive Tree Ministries in Maple Grove, Minn., says a doll marketed by toy-making giant Mattel is indoctrinating children into Islam. The Little Mommy Cuddle “˜n Coo dolls are designed to make baby sounds “” cooing, giggling, and baby babble. But that’s not what the religious right is hearing.
It does seem to be saying, “˜Islam is the light.” I don’t think too many people would argue with that, so I think they”re being a little disingenuous,” Markell told OneNewsNow.
“And this is not a healthy thing to be putting out in the marketplace when we”re in a war on terror, and little children are so susceptible to the messages they hear “” even from a doll “” then to take them into the school and talk about them. So yeah, this is a serious thing.”
Markell is a prominent Minnesota Christian radio host having had right-wing politicians, including Rep. Michele Bachmann, as regular guests on her show.
Mattel says the doll only says the word “mama” and the rest is baby babble, but they plan to reconfigure the babble sounds to ensure there are no misunderstandings.
