Skip to comments.The Heavens Opened, and Behold, a White Horse

Sen. Orrin Hatch is speaking Mormon code again to conservatives in Southern Utah. Rolly reports that Hatch told a breakfast gathering in St. George on Saturday that I would be letting down my Father in Heaven if I didnt run again. I understand. The Ayatollah Khomeini felt exactly the same way.

It's always risky to drag deity directly into politics. Perhaps a higher power has been at work in America's history, but individual claims of knowing the mind of God are always dubious. It's reasonable to assume, for instance, that Satan's interference with Jacob's campaign meant that God didn't want him in Washington.
All this ties indirectly to a supposed utterance by Mormon prophet Joseph Smith known as the "White Horse Prophecy." Legend holds that Smith predicted the Constitution would one day "hang by a thread" and would be rescued by Mormon elders. Ever since, various Mormon elders have been styling themselves as the men for the job. Hatch used the "hang by a thread" language in a meeting with the Herald editorial board some years back, and in fact, the phrase crops up regularly in Mormondom. Glenn Beck, for instance, sent out the code in an interview with Bill O'Reilly in 2008: "We are at the place where the Constitution hangs in the balance. I feel the Constitution is hanging in the balance right now, hanging by a thread unless the good Americans wake up."
Never mind that the Constitution has been hanging by a thread ever since the nation's birth. Ever hear of Andrew Jackson and that little problem of nullification? Every hear of the Civil War? Conservative politics is getting so radical these days -- including a generous dose of religion everywhere you turn -- that it ought to be asked whether one can be a good Mormon and a Republican.
I guess in his mind he wants to be there when Romney fulfills the white horse prophesy.
Better the white horse than the white unicorn that sh*ts hopeychangey nuggets..
Any of these(D)dudes have a white horse?

The Elite ones.
I despise RINOmney.
Because he is a RINO...not because of his faith.
Let’s keep the religion out of it...unless we’re talkin’ about the Ayatollah Obamaloon.
I’m not so sure
Our team will go along with a President Romney but will fight zero
Romney is who he is because of mormonism not in spite of it.
If you do not understand mormonism, you will not understand Romney.
Great Song, Love Johnny Cash!
So...it’s ok to mention 0bama’s “faith” and “religion” and how they made him who he is, but it’s not ok to do the same with Romney?
Better the white horse than the white unicorn that sh*ts hopeychangey nuggets..I, on the other hand, would vote for Obama before I would vote for Romney. Gingrich, yes. Santorum, yes. Romney, NEVER.
apparently the mormons themselves dont keep religion off the table
when it suits their purpose
and when it doesn't the bigot card appears and the victim flag flies
I just had a “discussion” (another blog) with a mormon, who told me that there is no such thing as the “white horse prophesy”, it is something Christians cooked up to lie about lds.
Now you Hateful, BIGOTTED 'christians' (spit) are going to spam THIS thread with all of the QUOTES we MORMONs have made over the years!!
--MormonDude(When do WE get a break?)
The most interesting part was that this person said Christians were trying to make lds look bad........wait I thought lds were Christians.
The only good news about the direction of this thread is that it’s going to take the pressure off the Jews for a little while. And speaking as a Jew myself, a lot of what I hear about the Mormons reminds me directly of what I used to hear (and still here in some quarters) about the Jews - you know, clannish wierdos with strange religious practices, a not-so-secret rich elite, odd ways of doing things, a questionable association with Americans despite their own pleadings to the contrary. Instead of that little beenie cap, the magic underwear.
Not that I’m particularly enamored with Mittens. He reminds me of the Rockerfeller Republicans who used to roam my home state of Connecticut, and who went extinct following the Reagan years.
The man I really miss at moments like this is Barry Goldwater. I had the rare pleasure of actually talking with the man on several occasions when he visited American University, and I credit those conversations to leading me to places like this. Mittens, though... as my grandfather would say, he’s a putz.
