Thou shalt mutilate Ken and Barbie

In a bid to (s)nip idolatry in the bud a former grand rabbi of Israel is imploring parents to amputate their children's dolls.
Basing the move on a Biblical ban on the possession of idols, Mordechai Eliyahu, a Sephardic rabbi, broadcast his edict on a religious radio station calling for an arm or a leg to be dismembered.

In the case of a teddy bear or other stuffed animals, the children will see their beloved toys lose an ear or an eye instead.

"It is very important that these toys do not remain intact so as to remove the element of idolatry," said Eliyahu.

Religion just gets nuttier and nuttier.
