Over at T&S, Jonathan Green suggests that the Church might learn a few lessons from the international marketing efforts of big corporations like Wal-Mart and McDonalds.

Indeed! And the Church has listened:

Learning from Wal-Mart's mistakes, to attract price-conscious German converts, the church will implement predatory pricing on tithing and other offerings.

Taking a cue from McDonalds, the Church will now use this new, revised logo on all German church buildings and missionary materials.
The Mormon Church: I'm lovin' it!

It was not confirmed, at the time of this writing, if the Church would authorize the granting of indulgences. Also, the initial idea of "drive-through" Sacrament distribution was scrapped due to the relatively high fuel prices prevalent in European markets.

Nice one, Dazz. You get a gold star.

If I remember my history correctly, "indulgences" were sold, not granted.

Perhaps an "indulgence" coupon could be granted after a few years of diligent service? All others would have to be sold in order to keep a capitalistic focus.

In other words, Shiz, you propose a customer-loyalty/retention program. An indulgence would certainly beat a free Blimpie sub.
