Merry Chri$tma$ with Rev. Billy

If you've seen Super Size Me, then you will want to go see this documentary. It opens at the River Oaks theatre in Houston on Dec. 7. Check it out. Read some reviews of the film here.

From what little I saw just now, it reminds me of some of your research dealing with the megachurch and capitalism.

Yes, there's tons of interesting angles to think about here. Rev. Billy seems to play the role of a megapastor, megapersonality in a kind of prophetic way. Interesting.

My students seemed to both scoff and take his proposals seriously--it turned out to be an interesting conversation the other day. I'm eager to pick the conversation back up after the documentary hits Houston.
