What Would Jesus Buy?

What Would Jesus Buy?

Just caught this documentary on the Sundance channel called What Would Jesus Buy.

It's a little over the top as you might guess, but it definitely makes a big statement about the over commercialization of Christmas, and what's really going on for the holidays.
Here at Respect the Turkey, we really like the idea of a whole month of giving thanks before everyone starts asking for presents!
