Lateral Thinking

Some years ago, there was a story about a Jewish synagogue that had a problem with the Baptists down the street.

Some Jews were unable to find a space in their own parking lot because members of the nearby Baptist church, which met earlier in the morning for revival meetings, got there first.

The Jewish synagogue had a problem.

Now they could have towed the Baptist's cars away. Or they could have patrolled their lot Saturday mornings. Or they could have written a letter to the offending church members, imploring them to park elsewhere, but they didn't.

Instead, they used bumper stickers.

One Saturday morning they stuck a bumper sticker to every car in the lot -- Baptist and Jewish alike. The sticker read: "I'M PROUD TO BE JEWISH !"

No more parking lot problems.

It seems a very interesting way to solve the problem of parking cars. The concept is understood as far as Lateral thinking is concerned. But being an Indian, not aware of the details about Baptists and Jews, I found a bit difficult to comprehend one thing. That is does the solution have any thing to do with the belief systems of Baptists and Jews.I am going to use this example in one of the talks I am going to give during m presentation on Lateral thinking. Could you please response.
