What Would Jesus Buy?

When: Mon., Dec. 20, 6:30 p.m. 2010

If you've already spent lots on holiday gifts, don't let that dissuade you from going to tonight's 6:30 screening of What Would Jesus Buy?, wherein Morgan Spurlock and Billy Talens warn us of an impending Shopocalypse, at Manitou Springs Public Library (701 Manitou Ave., manitousprings.colibraries.org, free). Though "Reverend Billy" can be a little preachy, he's not puritanical, and neither is the 2007 documentary that follows him, his wife, and their "Church of Stop Shopping Choir" cross-country; rather than urge a complete boycott, the movie asks us to think more seriously about what we're buying, and from whom. I think everyone can get behind that. And I'm not just saying so because our Last-Minute Gift Guide begins on p. 29. — Kirk Woundy
