"The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion, but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact, non-Westerners never do.”" ~~~~Samuel P. Huntington

In America, A Christian Nation Addicted To "Stuff", The Question Remains... What Would Jesus Buy?

From the humble beginnings of preaching at his portable pulpit on New York City subways, to having a congregation of thousands – Bill Talen (aka Rev. Billy) has become the leader of not just a church, but a national movement.

This movie is an examination of the commercialization of Christmas in America while following Reverend Billy and the 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.)

The film also delves into issues such as the role sweatshops play in America’s mass consumerism and Big-Box Culture.

Watch in amazement as a group of pre-teen girls call a Big Box store's consumer 800 number and attempt to ascertain WHERE their clothes come from... and the operator's remarkable response.

(the operator hangs up on these perfectly polite children).

See the woman who has a walk-in closet full of designer clothes, for her dog!

See the Reverend attempt to exorcise the devil out of a WalMart checkout stand and witness the parking lot baptism of a small child who has yet to discern the manifold evils of consumerism.
