DVD Review: What Would Jesus Buy?

This is the story of what a trip that Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping took during the Christmas season. It’s a little bit hard to tell where these guys are coming from besides their main point – we have culturally bought into the idea that shopping will make us happy when it really offers “eternal debt” which is wiping us out.

There is some good information here about how Walmart and Target get their stuff from paying eleven year olds minimal dollars a day in foreign lands to make shash-kahs for us. Nothing we did not already know. Something we should think about.

Reverend Billy is a little over the top. He is fun to watch but I did wonder whether he is making fun of religion at the same time that he is make fun of shoppers.

Overall – 4 out 5 stars. It is now out on DVD and is streaming on Netflix.
