The Church of Stop Shopping, I love it! Yes, take your money out of the bank!

I really find this guy fascinating - wish he weren't religiously affiliated, but better that with a reasonable message than what I usually hear - not about to become a theist - but totally laud his "preaching"!

do members of his church leave buttons in the collection plate instead of coins?

"Stop shopping!" He's so funny. He's only a pretend reverend.

I hope another movie is made about it.

The "Church" is a group of activists who sing about consumerism and so on.

Reverend Billy has a powerful message, but I noted that 99% of the passersby pretty much ignored him. Maybe it was his "packaging"? In any case, I wish he was POTUS!
