There’s a new Indiegogo global fundraising campaign to place McDonald’s in churches.
Organizers note that churches are closing by the thousands in the U.S. each year, and that McDonald’s serves 70 million people a day. So the solution to the dwindling churches problem is a McDonald’s in every church, and they want to start by raising $1 million to buy the first franchise.
This may or may not be a joke.
A study a few years ago concluded that very young children are more likely to recognise Ronald McDonald and the Nike swoosh than Jesus. One study found that 69% of all three-year-olds could identify the McDonald’s golden arches – while half of all four-year-olds did not know their own name.
