Skip to comments.Was Mitt Romney’s vote the fulfillment of a Mormon prophecy?

Utahans reacted to Sen. Mitt Romneys decision to break Republican ranks with a mixture of pride and dismay Wednesday, with some in this majority-Mormon state even suggesting that his vote to remove President Trump from office recalled a prophecy attributed to the church founder Joseph Smith.
Although generally debunked as apocryphal by modern historians, the so-called White Horse Prophecy dates to 1844 when Smith himself was a candidate for president of the United States. The Mormons members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have long regarded the U.S. Constitution as a divinely inspired document.
According to the legend, Smith predicted that someday the Constitution would be in extreme danger hanging like a thread as fine as silk fiber and that a member of the church would ride in on a white horse to save it.
I think Mitt Romney is under the impression that he is going to be the white horse Republican who will save the country, said Salt Lake City historian Will Bagley, a frequent critic of the church and its leaders. Whether or not that would happen is a different matter, but I think if it came down to picking between Mitt Romney and Mike Pence, most people would go with Romney.

He’s a piece of garbage.
And my prophecy is that he will continue to be so until his last breath.
Such a boatload of feces from the worthless commie rag. Now they are promoting crazy Mormon prophecies.
Pence or Romney????
A Moron Prophecy.
It was the fulfillment of a revenge fantasy, nothing more.
Ummm...I think he’s got some part of the horse but it’s the stinky part that usually drops out on the road.
He genuinely could have saved the country but choose not to
Why did they compare Pence to Romney?
The Church of Latter Day Saints is nothing more than a Cult. Mitt is nothing more than a brainwashed ninny, that is an Elder in the same cult.
Did not know this story..this explains quite a bit.
But sorry, Romney...Trump is the one that rode in on the White Horse
Maybe because Romney’s not going to try until the odds are more favorable, say, 2024.
Along the way, he made me disappointed that I ever supported him for anything.
Yep. You nailed it
Back stabbing SOB.
Missed the part where he gave a specific, justifiable reason to impeach the President. His reasons for voting for impeachment are personal, not legal.
It won’t matter how long Romney waits, he will never get my vote.
Come on people think about this:
The book of golden plates that Joe Smith found in the woods???
Understanding of how much this would weigh??? even if some ‘angel’ lifted them???
If you take the Bible and put it next to the ‘Book of Mormons’ Joe Smith changed a few words but it sounds the same...
I am sorry that the Moron Church is what it is, and you can see for yourself what it is by RAT ROMNEY; Hairless Reed; and a few others that this ‘church’ ain’t much...
Now getting onto my religion, Catholic...John Paul11 told Nanzi Peebody that if she continued to support abortion and other things we don’t believe in she would be booted out, and that is what happened and I seen her face last night in the State of the Union address when Our President mentioned God and she knows, trust me she knows...she’s going to meet the devil himself and his helpmate Hillary...
