Latter Day Saints to the Rescue


Joseph Smith is the founder and the Prophet of the Mormon religion. He once called the Mormons of Utah the “White Horse”, seemingly comparing them to the White Horse of Revelation. In his diary, a man named John Roberts, a friend of Joseph Smith, recorded a prophetic utterance given by Smith. Here is a portion:

“While this conversation was going on we stood by his south wicket gate in a triangle. Turning to me, he said, “I want to tell you something of the future. I will speak in a parable like unto John the Revelator. You will go to the Rocky Mountains and you will be a great and mighty people established there, which I will call the White Horse of peace and safety.” When the Prophet said, “You will see it,” I said, “Where will you be at that time?” He said, “I shall never go there. Your enemies will continue to follow you with persecutions and they will make obnoxious laws against you in Congress to destroy the White Horse, but you will have a friend or two to defend you and throw out the worst parts of the law so they will not hurt you so much. You must continue to petition Congress all the time, but they will treat you like strangers and aliens and they will not give you your rights, but will govern you with strangers and commissioners. You will see the Constitution of the United States almost destroyed. It will hang like a thread as fine as a silk fiber.” At that time the Prophet’s countenance became sad, because as he said, “I love the Constitution; it was made by the inspiration of God; and it will be preserved and saved by the efforts of the White Horse, and by the Red Horse who will combine in its defense.” (source)

You see, Joseph Smith considered the Constitution as divinely inspired as Scripture, and he believed one day when that document was in jeopardy that the Latter Day Saints would rescue it. This prophecy has not become official church doctrine, however it does remain a source of interest and discussion within the LDS. Now Mitt Romney is a high priest in the LDS, and has taken many sacred and secret oaths. Hmm…do you think he may believe he is called by God to save the Constitution? If you believe that, you should vote for him. And if that prophecy is true, then you are a Mormon.

I believe Joseph Smith was killed by a mob that became angry over his willingness to steal their wives. Or let's just say, have more than one wife.

Or they were mad because he soiled his magic undergarments! :)

It's funny that you blogged about voting. I will NOT be voting this year or any other year. What does it accomplish? Besides voting is not in the scriptures-Noel
