God is omniscient, but with this he can relax a bit and let the technology do the work.

Is this even needed, don't all those nosy church bodies have it figured out easily enough?

I guess for a megachurch place it would apply

They'd best work on "finger-recognition" technology.

RE: Skipping church? Caught!
why do they even need this or even care who keeps showing up to church?

So they know who to disfellowship for missing a day in church?

Quote:“It’s simple to see if a member isn’t attending three or four events. Then they can give the member a call and say something like, ‘See you on Sunday,'” Greenshpan said.

It could also be used as a tool for the church to ask for donations, Greenshpan said. “If they see a member who is regularly attending events, they could feel more comfortable giving them a call and asking for a donation,” he said. Or it can blacklist someone who might have caused trouble in the past, such a disruptive visitor.

Even creepier if the catholic priests start using it.
