MSNBC Host interviews guest on Mormonism's 'White Horse Prophecy'

MSNBC's Tamron Hall interviewed Edward-Isaac Dovere from the POLITICO. The topic of conversation was Mormonism's 'White Horse Prophecy,' allegedly made by Mormonism's founder, Joseph Smith. At its core is a belief that a wealthy Mormon would be elected president at a time when the US Constitution is hanging by a thread.

In this clip, Dovere actually minimizes the importance of the prophecy by explaining that it was first reported by one lone person 50 years after it was allegedly uttered by Smith. Dovere does make a subtle attempt to tie Romney to the prophecy by saying that Mormons believe the Constitution was 'divinely inspired,' which is also a part of the 'White Horse Prophecy.' He then referred to a comment by Romney that the presidential candidate believes the Constitution was... you guessed it, 'divinely inspired.'

Compounding this is the fact that Romney's campaign is not responding to inquiries about these things. Dovere makes this point as well. The media knows full well that when the subject of Mormonism is brought up, Romney would rather not discuss it. Unfortunately for Romney, the green light for the media to continue pressing the issue couldn't be any brighter as a result.

The strategy of the mainstream media will become clear. It is going to continue piling up the bizarre aspects, practices, and beliefs inside the Mormon church to the point of having an overwhelming preponderance of items that Romney will not be able to withstand. The more such things are met with silence from Romney, the more damaging they will be.
