Quote #1401 -- Darth Wong -- Quotable Posts
RedImperator: This is totally unsurprising--in fact, it makes a great deal of logistical, economic, and sociological sense. Millions of Americans don't live in neighborhoods per se, they live in housing tracts connected by arterial roads to large commercial centers. Just like big box stores thrive in that environment, so should big box churches. Darth Wong: This sounds like an opportunity for the Walton family. Just imagine the potential: Wal-Mart stores are already well-positioned geographically for this purpose. You could have Wal-Mart right next door to Wal-Church, or perhaps you could even incorporate the Wal-Church right into the Wal-Mart so that you can follow up your worship of Christ with a hearty meal of processed worm meat at the in-store McDonald's before purchasing some of Wal-Mart's fine selection of fashionable Malaysian outdoor wear. Perhaps over time, these new Wal-Churches could use their superior convenience and amenities to drive the smaller, Mom-and-Pop churches out of business and consolidate the Protestant religion across America, with Sam Walton as the Wal-Pope.
