Life imitatating art. Well, sort of.

You can now view a trailer for "What would Jesus Buy?", destributed by AOL, very likely at Walmart.





While at Walmart, you can buy Jesus Himself as a 12 inch talking action figured (I'd hesitate to call Him a doll).

So the question is not merely "What would Jesus buy?" but "Who will buy Jesus?" and will anyone have the nerve to discount Him after Christmas.

Strange Twist: two years ago, I enjoyed a cup of coffee with Reverend Billy, his lovely wife, and our mutual friend, Andie. It was not at Walmart though.

Wow, you and I are on the same page. Did you check my blog from a few days ago. The Jesus doll AND you are mentioned.

Dear Saint Randy,

I, Sister Gwen, would like to thank you on behalf of the Church of Stop Shopping for bringing our documentary to the attention of the web sinning- I mean surfing - public. What Would Jesus Buy is arriving in theaters on November 16th - and it is not produced by AOL. It is produced by Morgan Spurlock, who acknowledges that sometimes the best way to reach a shopping sinner is commandeer the Devil's loudspeaker. Don't worry though; I doubt you'll see this movie at Wal-Mart. The Stop Shopping Gospel Choir exorcised their world headquarters on our trip across the country.

If you have any questions, you can contact me at gwen at the website revbilly.com

Sister Gwen - Maybe your ideals won't let you sell it through the big boxes, but if you look at the link to the trailer, you'll find something interesting...

"http://movies.aol.com//...."

Seems like some times you just gotta use The Man, eh?

Just don't take the mark...
