You may remember Rex Rammell, the long-shot candidate who is seeking to become Idaho’s next governor, for his “joke” earlier this year about hunting President Obama.
Well, he is back in the news, thanks to a scheduled gathering of LDS elders he is hosting next month to discuss the Mormon prophecy that a time will come when the US Constitution will hang “upon a single thread” and LDS leaders will step-forward to save the nation:
Idaho gubernatorial candidate Rex Rammell will be mixing what he calls doctrines from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints into his gubernatorial campaign in a series of meetings slated for LDS elders only.
In January, Rammell will kick off a series of special meetings targeted specifically at “faithful priesthood-holders of the LDS Church” to discuss the so-called “White Horse” prophecy.
The first meeting will held at the Hampton Inn in Idaho Falls between 7 and 8 p.m. on Jan. 19. Subsequent meetings will be held in Rexburg, Blackfoot, Pocatello, Twin Falls and Boise, and only men active in the LDS Church have been invited to attend.
“There is nothing secret about the meeting — it’s just the sacred nature of the things we will be talking about,” said Rammell. “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.”
