The Mormon Church As The Ge Of Religion
a: The mormon church ~
b: the General Electric of American religion
What: "The result is an organization that resembles a sanctified multinational corporation-the General Electric of American religion, with global ambitions and an estimated net worth of $30 billion." A very nice comparison. The linked article seems sympathetic to the religion and its followers.

METAMIA is a free database of analogy
and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search.
The subject matter can be anything.
Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged.
The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with
the stark literalism of a relational database.
Metamia is like a girdle for your muses,
a cognitive girdle.
