What rector in his or her right mind would try to grow a parish by having the members conceive more children?

What's wrong with growing by having more kids?

My current (Big "O") Orthodox parish grows both through evangelism and marked fertility. I love seeing all those babies. Who do ECUSAns think will take care of them in their old age?

No wonder ECUSA is dying; it's all old 'n gray these days.

I'll tell you exactly why no rector would encourage fertility in his congregation: those whiny kids might disrupt the service. Having a baby let out a fuss while the choir and organ perform the Gloria in perfect 3 part harmony would eliticit the same indignation as someone spitting on the host in a Catholic Church.
