As Busiest Shopping Day of the Year Approaches, a Sermon From the Church of Stop Shopping

November 22, 2000

This Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, is the biggest shopping day of the year. It is also a day when many human rights and labor organizations remind us about the workers who labor in sweatshops around the world to make the toys, clothing and other gifts for the Christmas season. Today we are joined by the Rev. Billy of the Church of Stop Shopping, which has declared entire city blocks "Starbucks and Disney-free" areas.


  • Rev. Billy, from the Church of Stop Shopping.
  • Brother Bill Henry, organist with the Church of Stop Shopping.
