Just in time for the holidays,(and in time to cure me of my ba humbugness) there’s a new documentary about Reverend Billy and his flock and their efforts to stop the coming Shopocalypse. This docucomedy asks the questions, What would Jesus buy? Or more specifically, “Would Jesus camp outside a Walmart on a brisk November night so he could closeline a little old lady, get the Nintendo Wii and the Black Friday discount?”
Probably not. Unless it came with an extra controller and a complimentary game pack.
If you live in the Washington DC area Sojourners is hosting an night with Rev Billy, a free screening of the movie and a Q and A session afterwards on Thursday December 20th at 7 p.m. at the Gala Hispanic Theatre (3333 14th St. N.W.)
