Archie McPhee's new "Jesus Action Figure" bends the question "What would Jesus do?" in some very weird ways. Each hard plastic figure stands 5 inches tall with poseable (and opposable) arms to reach toward the heavens and back to the here-and-now. He also has smooth gliding wheels in his base for quick getaways and comes in an illustrated package with biblical quotes on the back. If only he would overturn the Chinese sweatshops where he's made.

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
