Cherie Priest on The Church of Stop Shopping.

From her blog:

What I’m trying to say is this: Reverend Billy’s church needs a children’s ministry. It won’t do him any good to attack Disney; this just makes him look like the villain to the primary demanders of Disney products. Instead — or rather, in addition to his present message — he needs a campaign that will explain in easily digestible terms why he objects to Disney as a corporate entity. Kids are smarter than you’d think. They can follow a logic train, even if that train looks like Thomas the Tank Engine, it’s covered in lead, and it was made in Sri Lanka.
