Philstar.com reports that a member of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) is asking people to avoid giving "angry toys" as Christmas presents to kids.

Philstar.com reports that a member of  the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) is asking people to avoid giving "angry toys" as Christmas presents to kids.

 

According to the report, CBCP Media Office director Monsignor Pedro Quitorio III was referring to the Angry Birds toy line, which is, of course, inspired by the game featuring cute birds enraged over the green pigs stealing their eggs. The objective of the game is to destroy the pigs. As such, Quitorio pointed out that Angry Birds toys are "inconsistent with the season's message of love and peace."

 

Quitorio advised, "Gifts should be in line with Christmas. Christmas is all about love...give something that enhances love because if it enhances anger, that is not good."

 

For his part, Bishop Joel Baylon, chairman of the CBCP Episcopal Commission on Youth said he is against toy guns. "There are other things we can provide that are worthwhile," he said. The report revealed that Baylon suggested giving children "books and other educational gifts."
