The Church of Stop Shopping

Rev. Billy says: Stop shopping

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) - "Heidi Klum told me, 'If you buy this perfume, I'll make love to you.' But oh Lord, where's Heidi now? And what about Christy Turlington? She didn't make love to me either."

And that's the final word on the demagoguery of advertising from Reverend Billy, the fiery evangelical leader of the Church of Stop Shopping....His church wants Americans to buy nothing on the mother of all shopping days, Black Friday, as part of a global initiative to smite the devil consumerism.

Some of this sounds familiar. Does Rev. Billy post here?
