Here is an interesting description of the Iglesya Ni Cristo:
Iglesia ni Cristo is a Philippine protestant sect that has adopted a sort of fast food approach to religion. The formulaic Iglesia churches are a brilliant exercise in branding, they come in four sizes but all are instantly recognizable from their green or orange roofs and distinctive portals. Although INC, McDonalds and Jollibee achieved national coverage in the 1990s, we saw far more of Iglesia’s fast religion establishments during our drive through Bicol than McDonalds or Jollibee restaurants. I guess readers will have their own views on whether that is a good thing or not.
I find the comparison with fastfood centers MacDonald’s and Jollibee hilarious.
