"What Would Jesus Buy?"

Published Robbie - Sun, 12/02/2012 - 3:19pm

Produced by award-winning documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock, this examination of the commercialization of Christmas in America follows Reverend Billy and his Church of Stop Shopping Gospel Choir on a cross-country mission to save Christmas from the Shopocalypse (the end of humankind from consumerism, over-consumption and the fires of eternal debt.) Watch Reverend Billy exorcise demons at Wal-Mart's headquarters and preach his anti-consumerist message at Disneyland and the Mall of America.

The film also delves into the business practices of corporations and the economic/cultural effects it has. From the humble beginnings of preaching at his portable pulpit on New York City subways, to having a congregation of thousands - Rev. Billy has become the leader of not just a church, but a national movement.
