RfM'er Lachesis in another thread added this comment, which I took as a bit of satire. But as my subject line asks, could Mormonism get to that point? (Nice job, Lachesis, you alloter you!)https://www.exmormon.org/phorum/read.php?2,2207447,2207587#msg-2207587

What if they start holding parents 'responsible' for the sin of resigning when it's their children doing the resigning? What if they decide that this might work to hold the kids hostage to the religion. They could guilt the kids into at least not formally resigning so as to spare the parents whatever the penalty would be. At least that way the numbers would still be there, and this horrible (to them) plague of dwindling numbers would be cured.
