I'm still shaking my head a little after reading about the "White Horse Prophecy" on Wonkette. Somehow, I'm not really surprised that its been resurrected or that the SL Tribune reported on it. I'm a little surprised to see it on Wonkette, but not really.
Anyway, the "White Horse Prophecy" was recorded in a journal entry of a Mormon who heard two men who were with Joseph Smith when he reportedly said, " "You will see the Constitution of the United States almost destroyed. It will hang like a thread as fine as a silk fiber." The journal entry goes on to say,""Power will be given to the White Horse to rebuke the nations afar off, and you obey it, for the laws go forth from Zion." White Horse Prophecy in entirety
The Prophecy was discredited officially by the LDS church in 1918, but you still hear about it, especially in the fringes of the Church. It's a little crazy this prophecy still is discussed and I've known people who agree with it--however, just the existence of the prophecy itself is well, a little suspect. Heresay is rarely a reliable means to receive revelation. Then there's the text itself. A little um, sensational, to say the least.
As far as Romney being the "white horse"......well, only if the white horse had an extremely groomed mane......
Note: I like when I can use the cheesiest art I could find on google.
Update: The Giuliani Deputy Campaign Director sent this article to bloggers Monday morning. They apologized after the fact saying the distribution of this article was "a regrettable mistake" and they reaffirm their commitment to hold a "clean campaign." Thanks Rich for the article. http://www.sltrib.com/news/ci_6062680?source=email
