Ah, but it does say it, and words it oh so craftily and subtly. Lost of people on this thread buying it too.
“Out of Smiths national political ambitions grew what would become known in Mormon circles as the White Horse Prophecy a belief ingrained in Mormon culture and passed down through generations by church leaders that the day would come when the U.S. Constitution would hang like a thread as fine as a silk fiber and the Mormon priesthood would save it.”
It doesn’t separate the WHP from the borrowed theme, then uses it in the title. That’s just really bad reporting.
And it even says Church Leaders teach it, when in fact they do just the opposite and denounce it.
Yellow journalism at it’s finest. Thanks Salon.
Seems alright to me, many Mormons seem to believe this about Mitt and that is what the article is about.
You were the one misleading when you tried to dismiss it by pretending they were claiming it was Mormon “doctrine”.
Writing about Romney’s bizarre religion is a necessary part of getting out the facts on him and his bizarre obsession with being President.
