Barbies Gone Mild!

Amish Barbie

I swore I wouldn’t wade into the Episco-Barbie inspired religious Barbie craze. But I did. And now Clergy Family Confidential has become your official source for rogue religious Barbie dolls.

Burka Barbie

Inspired by parishioner David Clinton’s challenge to dig up more, I have done just that. Of course, since I have no talent whatsoever for crafts, I didn’t create any of these. But fortunately I am a very gifted Googler.

Mormon Barbie

I never thought I’d pine for your regular old supermodel Barbie. But here you have it: Amish Barbie, Burka Barbie, Bible Thumping Barbie, Mormon Barbie, and my personal favorite, the Scarlett Letter Barbie.

There’s also a whole darker side of the Barbie phenomenon that I can’t get into on a family blog such as this. Suffice it to say that this is not your grandmother’s Barbie. Whew!

    Interesting– the Bible thumper is the only Barbie to show arms and legs. What does that say about our evangelical brothers??

  2. Where’s Burqua Barbie?

    I can’t understand why we didn’t run into Scarlet Letter Barbie in Salem! That would have been yet another version of Hester Prynne for the costume party…

    I’m sure your interest in the Scarlet Letter Barbie is because of your desire for those lost in sin.
