Rex Rammell may be running for Idaho’s governorship, but he is clearly preparing for (or at least thinking of) something more grand. The Mormon candidate will be holding closed door meetings with elders from the Church of the Latter Day Saints (LDS) on the rather apocalyptic predictions by Joseph Smith called the “White Horse” prophesy that leads to Mormons saving the nation by taking over the government.
Rammell previously attracted national attention with a joke about hunting President Obama, here.
In January, Rammell will hold a series of special meetings targeted specifically at “faithful priesthood-holders of the LDS Church” to discuss the so-called “White Horse” prophecy. Smith foretold of a constitutional crisis that leads to the impending breakup of the United States — only to have the Mormons take over the government.
Women are not invited but Rammell said that their husbands can return home and explain to them what occurred.
Rammell insists that the meetings are closed but not secret:
“There is nothing secret about the meeting — it’s just the sacred nature of the things we will be talking about. We are going to talk about (LDS Church founder) Joseph Smith’s prophecy that the Constitution will be hanging by a thread and that the Latter-day Saint elders will step forward and save it. . . . Only LDS elders are invited because I don’t want people there that don’t believe that Joseph Smith was a prophet. . . . Any active member of the church is welcome to attend.”
Now that is the ultimate stimulus package. Of course with Sarah Palin sucking the oxygen out of the Republican race for the White House, an apocalypse may be the only viable option left to Mitt Romney.
