A pastor reviews "Fight Club", and doesn't mention the targeted presidential candidate's name; guess who
A pastor (at MCCNOVA in Fairfax, VA) delivered a “mini-review” of the "Fight Club", the 1999 film by David Fincher where Ed Norton plays an adaptive “misfit” who doesn’t make it in the material world and starts his club to explore male identity.
She mentioned a quote from the script, “I buy what I don’t need with money I don’t have to impress people I don’t even like.” The entire sermon was “Jesus is not a capitalist”. Guess which political candidate was targeted but not named in the sermon.
The film was wildly popular with men in the workplace in 1999. You can get Tyler Mowery's take on the film with a 2021 video.
