"...a discourse delivered by Joseph Smith July 19-1840....
"...When the seed of these 12 Olive trees are scattered abroad they will wake up the Nations of the whole Earth. Even this Nation will be on the very verge of crumbling to pieces and tumbling to the ground and when the constitution is upon the brink of ruin this people will be the Staff up[on] which the Nation shall lean and they shall bear the constitution away from the very verge of destruction." (The Historians Corner, BYU Studies, Vol. 19, No. 3, p. 391-392)
In the book, Discourses of Brigham Young...we read:
When the Constitution of the United States hangs, as it were, upon a single thread, they will have to call for the "Mormon" Elders to save it from utter destruction; and they will step forth and do it. 2:182.
Will the Constitution be destroyed? No; it will be held inviolate by this people; and, as Joseph Smith said, "The time will come when the destiny of the nation will hang upon a single thread...7:15. (Discourses of Brigham Young, pp. 360-361 and p. 469)

btw, I concur with Greyfoxx39 in nominating FREEPER Szonian as having the "Testimony Post of the Year" Mormon scholar under fire (See Post #42)
Let me see.......who could have the notion that they are a part of this prophecy.....?????? Who?
All I have to say is, they’d better get crackin’. So far it’s Obama-2, Mormons-0
Me thinks its going to take a whole passel of Conservative Constitutionalists too. Sadly, the Electorate isn’t in the business of calling on Mormon Elders.
Hmmmm, So, does this mean that Mitt Romney is a shoe-in for President in 2012?
lol, 11 seconds
This will be the Romney campaign platform.
A single thread? Like a non-Constitutionally qualified occupier of the White House, maybe?
I’ll stick with the biblical white horse account - rather than anything from a counterfeit prophet.
as I've always said, Mormons worship their temple and themselves...not Jesus Christ.....
Not to mention a protestant or two. ;-)
