The good folks at the Campaign for a Commercial Free Childhood and the Church of Stop Shopping (with Reverend Billy) have outdone themselves in parody this year with the new film What Would Jesus Buy ? . This surrealistic look at the Christmas shopping cult is now showing in theatres across the USA in the month of December. Follow Reverend Billy and his choir as they go on a cross-country mission to save Christmas from the Shopocalypse . As the CCFC says, "What Would Jesus Buy is funny, provocative and inspiring...a journey into the heart of America-from exorcising demons at the Wal-mart headquarters to taking over the center stage at the Mall of America and ultimately heading to the Promised Land-Disneyland." Will Reverend Billy save America from the evil designs of the Satanic Cult of Consumption ? Is the numerological solution of George Bush Junior's name the number 666 ? See the movie to find out. Unfortunately not to be shown in Canada, but downloadable from the website (see above). A great counterpoint to A Christmas Carol for your holiday viewing. Look to the movie website for places and times of showing this month, and further details. Look to Molly's Blog in days to come for some of the great carol spoofs.
