I do like the thought of them squirming uncomfortably because the "the money of the greater number is cooling off" and their "money waters are drying up" but, it is strange that if they are in such desperate need for money they would not put a bit more effort into customer satisfaction and figuring out why people leave or stop donating - but they don't seem to care at all about the lost donations from lost sheep. So could they really be that hard up if they're still not willing to care about that to actually do more?
Like doing more to prevent unhappy, disatisfied customers/members leaving in the first place by finding out why they are leaving and making genuine efforts to make the congregation experience a more positive one - but they don't.
Making more of a genuine effort to woo back lapsed members. There is sooooo much more they could do without resorting to what amounts to religious bullying, threats and emotional blackmail to woo back the old customer base - but they don't.
The so-called "witnessing" recruiting that gets done now is pathetic, yeilding pathetic results and yet that doesn't appear to bother them either. Not exactly the attitude of an org in dire straights.
