YOUTUBE – And lo I beheld Rev.Billy Rock Occupy London SX last night

I was at Occupy London last night, in the cold wet surrounds of St. Paul’s Cathedral, in need of a morale booster when I beheld an apparition of one of my all time heroes! Dressed in white, with the quif and the pointy white cowboy boots it was none other than Rev Bill of New York City from the Church of Non Shopping

Catholic Workers in Australia are big fans of Rev Billy’s dvd “What Would Jesus By?” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/What_Would_Jesus_Buy%3F

The Rev was speaking into a mobile phone and pacing up and down, so I followed him. As soon as he hung up, I shook his hand and said “Love your work!”

We had a good chat. He has a good analysis of the Occupy movement and is very upbeat. It’s always weird meeting someone like that in 3 D, who’ve you’ve only seen on the tube, when you don’t expect to meet them. It reminded me of being collared by Gerry Adams while on a march in Dublin. Kind of like meeting Santa Claus but different.

Anyways Rev Billy said he “loves to preach” and preach he did at Occupy London
Check this youtube out from last night……

The prophets tell us who we could be,
So we hide the poor,
And kill the prophets.”
