What Would Jesus Buy?

Producer Morgan Spurlock (Supersize Me) and director Ron Van Alkemade
have made a serious docu-comedy about the commercialization of Christmas.
The movie follows Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping Gospel Choir
as they go on a cross country mission to save Christmas from the Shopocalyse:
the end of mankind from consumerism, over-consumption, and the fires of eternal debt!
You can watch or listen to Reverend Billy and Morgan Spurlock with Amy Goodman (plus see an excerpt from the movie) here.
A chronicalling of Reverend Billy's arrest in Union Square in July for reciting the
First Amendment, plus a few of his other arrests earlier in the year, here.
Bless his heart. Love! Him!
