No surprise that anything Mormon would have a hefty price tag attached....nothing quite like 'having a meter on god." (small 'g' intended)
I had no idea; however, I know that the U.S. Government prefers Mormons for work in such areas as the CIA and other world wide intelligence work because most (99% ) have served in other countries as part of required mission work. They speak other languages and are rather trustworthy souls. I saw the “Book of Mormon” in Chicago when I was at the 2012 ALA Conference. I was shocked; however I did laugh in many parts but most was not to my taste. I had to see what all the hubbub was about. I should have known. I do love the theater!
This will certainly be a useful tool for historians of religion.
