Is Reverend Billy the Grinch?
Here is a little holiday recommendation for all of you: WHAT WOULD JESUS BUY (WWJB)' is produced and based on a story by Morgan Spurlock (amongst others), who also brought us 'supersize me'. It is a very humorous, pretty weird documentary in which Rev. Billy (of the 'church of stop shopping) travels with his gospel choir all across America visiting shopping malls and Wal-greens stores during the Christmas shopping season preaching to 'stop shopping'. Whenever he appears with his friends (they all travel in a small bus powered by veggie oil) the security guards are very quickly at the scene.
This is a perfect movie to see - if possible - BEFORE you go out there to do your shopping. And, no... Reverend Billy is NOT the Grinch but just wants us to rethink.
If you can't make it to the movies I highly recommend to watch THE STORY OF STUFF a little short by Annie Leonard.
And for more great holiday and green advice and gift ideas make sure to check out Betsy Thagard's December Econotes.
But now I got to run, get my shopping done.....and will try NOT to sin!
