I was astounded by the SERP when I googled for information on the Ostlings and the Tanners.
It turns out that they are each married couples who authored books on Mormonism. There is apparently much more on this subject but I like to take a macro-view of the truth to expedite the learning process.
Generally the Tanners and Ostlings are referenced and represented as being un-supporters of Mormonism for want of a better phrase.
What strikes me is the sparse diluted google results which I've seen and several remarks that the repression of anti-mormon communications is the result of the organizational power and wealth of Mormons in order to advance their "religion" or perhaps more accurately their "business" using various forms of censorship. Particularly on the internet.
The Mormon church has a very strong and sophisticated internet presence and network of sites.
The words "power of money" and "suppression" come to mind. Think about that $21++ trillion that was reported to be socked away by the wealthiest individuals on earth. How many might be Mormons like Romney? Does the Mormon church send money offshore?
Yes. On large part for worthy causes . But like Romney the Mormon church is a financial black box when it comes to wealth.
I reference "business" as it relates to Mormonism to make a point, because I hear and read often how money plays a very significant role in the Mormon religion. The very foundation of the Mormon belief includes the significance of materiality to the procreator of Mormonism.
Money wise a 10% tithe certainly vests worshipers in more than just spiritual ways. How many millions has Romney paid?
How much money is being spent by Mormonism scanning the internet and buying keywords or perhaps far worse - merely to block the dissemination of information that might be anti-mormon? or simply the truth!
I intuit that the inner bowels of google have been touched by money. Keywords are sold to the highest bidders.
Ineveitably the highest bidders are the wealthiest individuals and organizations.
Mormonism is too vast a subject yielding too little results from search engines.
Time to pry open the black box. Much more to follow.
