    I really enjoyed this movie. I thought that it had a really great message and is a definite watch for all North Americans. I wrote a post on my blog about it too:

    I am a youth pastor in Calgary, AB canada. I RSS your blog and really enjoy it a lot. Keep up the good blogging. Peace!

    Consumerism is truly a big problem in America. I think another issue, within consumerism and 'What Would Jesus Buy?', is to look at the items we are buying. How many of the items that we buy are made in sweatshops and places where people not treated or paid fairly. I think we have a responsibility not only to watch our consumerism, but within our buying habits to make sure we are purchasing Fair Trade items.

    I agree with Amanda, one part of the issue is to simply buy less, the other part is to see what our purchases do to people in other countries.

    This was an excellent movie if for nothing else than to see a group of activists approach a problem creatively instead of with the typical picket signs and protests.
