Ah, but they both have healthy food and nice woodworking. This has to be something that has NO appeal. Perhaps we could invent one? I am thinking something where you are forced to memorize and recite obscure sections of the tax code. It would be mandatory that you go thru a ceremony as a child where this code is read aloud...really boring music is played. The code is sung by people in polyester. The church "priests" would be employees of the state motor vehicle dept. That trauma is sure to send everyone fleeing from the experience for life.

You're right of course. Besides, the state might choose the wrong side
of the red sauce -- white sauce FSM schism!

Maybe a combination of "no sex" and "no technology" rules, like Shakers
crossed with Amish, would make sure no one wants to join.

That is interesting -- the Catholic church practically admits that it's
all about the money.
