I was chatting with Jeromy recently and one of the topics that came up was the consumerist mentality here in America. As an example of this, he sent me this link. On this page, you can buy an iPod from Revival Ministries International that comes "loaded" with many of their materials - videos and music - all for the low, low price of $2195.

Yes, two-thousand ninety-five dollars for an iPod full of their evangelistic garbage teachings. Your purchase lets you achieve "personal growth and [stay] plugged into revival" and support "Revival Ministries International's crusades in North America and abroad." They don't mention that it also allows anyone with common sense to mock you loudly and frequently, though.

The saddest part of the page, however, is the mention that this iPod is "Out of stock." There really is a sucker born every minute.
