While reading Lego Club Magazine, Winnie Koch's 8-year-old son pointed out to her that Lego's Stagecoach Escape play set has a mini-figurine bandit named Jesus.

Koch was surprised.

"I was astounded to find out that Lego will use the Holy Name of Jesus, ignoring all Catholics and Christians, as a robber/thief,"
Koch said in an email. "I have written to Lego but haven't heard back."
