God’s House Not Unlike the IHOP

Because they both make you fat. But it has nothing to do with religion or God. Instead, social networks spread similar patterns of behavior. There’s an article in Wired that mapped connections among fat people. They clump together in social networks. It looks like this.
So I’m not saying being religious has anything to do with weight. In fact, the article on Time essentially says that if church’s wanted to be full of skinny people, they could manipulate these same social models by encouraging the fats to hang with non-fats and de-program their bad behavior via social networks. Seriously, it’s like magic.
