Q: What does Mattel have in common with gays?
A: They are both being targeted by fundamentalist Christians
Apparently, Mattel got itself in hot water with fundamentalist Christians because of their Little Mommy Cuddle 'n Coo dolls which allegedly says (depending upon who you talk to) either "Allah is light" or "Satan is right". Mind you, the doll doesn't actually say any real words, it babbles and coos (supposedly like a real baby), and some of these sounds have been interpreted to be sending an evil subliminal message to America's children - yes, those same children who have been targeted by the evil homosexuals who are out to convert their children.
The fundamentalist Christians have made this into a big enough stink that some stores are actually pulling the doll from their shelves. Someone even made a YouTube video
Now, I will admit that if I listen really carefully it does kinda sorta sound like it is saying "Allah is Light" - but, isn't this simply because the suggestion has been planted in my brain? Had I listened to this doll before hearing of this controversy, I seriously doubt I would have heard anything other than simulated babbling and cooing. In fact, my thoughts would more likely have been along the line of "that's annoying - how do you take the batteries out of this thing?"
It doesn't even make sense. Even if you did give your little girl a talking baby doll who says "Allah is Light" as part of its repertoire, it's not like it will lead her to declare jihad against the family.
And the people who are complaining - are the same people who supported proposition 8 in California.
Enough said ...
