Sunday Matinee- "What Would Jesus Buy?"

Though it's quite campy and bears a very slap dash, strident message, I loved this documentary.  At first I thought it was a "Mockumentary", but it's not.  I love you Reverend Billy!  Don't disappoint anyone with any scandals now!  Be Good!

I especially loved the 13th Century illuminated artwork, reworked in styles to make them relevant to modern viewers.

But, one thing I just couldn't abide was the incredible self serving interview of Andrew Young who, as a spokesperson for Walmart, defended that cost cutting giant of low wages as if they were literally reaching out to save jobless America and the poor.  Ridiculous.   He took Money to say that, too.  Shame on you Andrew Young!

Here's the full movie: 



Or, you can rent it from somewhere.  It's fun, and I truly admire the energy of the people in The Church of Stop Shopping.  They make some salient points while they make campy style points in the Malls of America.
