LDS Church issues statement on Rex Rammell

Rexburg, Idaho's Standard Journal reports:
The LDS Church has issued a statement regarding the church's stance on Idaho gubernatorial candidate Rex Rammell's "elders only" meetings.

Kim Farah, spokeswoman for the LDS church, issued this statement:

"The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is politically neutral and does not endorse or promote any candidate, party or platform. Accordingly, we hope that the campaign practices of political candidates would not suggest that their candidacy is supported by or connected to the church.

"The so-called 'White Horse Prophecy' is based on accounts that have not been substantiated by historical research and is not embraced as Church doctrine."
Undaunted, Rex digs in:

Rex Redux: OK, you're gonna have to edit that ... Mormon candidate for Idaho governor: Uncut, Unedited, Unhinged

Good on the SLC LDS leadership for stepping up and calling Rex out on his shenanigans.
