When Mitt Romney received his patriarchal blessing as a Michigan teenager, he was told that the Lord expected great things from him. All young Mormon men the worthy males of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as it is officially known receive such a blessing as they embark on their requisite journeys as religious missionaries. But at 19 years of age, the youngest son of the most prominent Mormon in American politics a seventh-generation direct descendant of one of the faiths founding 12 apostlesMitt Romney had been singled out as a destined leader.
was humming with talk that its president, Mitt Romney, would become the first Mormon president of the United States. If not Mitt, then who? was the ubiquitous slogan within the elite organization. The pious world of BYU was expected to spawn the man who would lead the Mormons into the White House and fulfill the prophecies of the churchs founder, Joseph Smith Jr., which Romney has avidly sought to realize.
--snip-- Smith prophesied that if the U.S. Congress did not accede to his demands that they shall be broken up as a government and God shall damn them. Smith viewed capturing the presidency as part of the mission of the church. He had predicted the emergence of the one Mighty and Strong a leader who would set in order the house of God and became the first of many prominent Mormon men to claim the mantle.
Romney is the product of this culture. At BYU, he was idolized by fellow students and referred to, only half jokingly, as the One Mighty and Strong.
My fears seem fake?
Do you know how that sounds coming from someone who is pushing the idea that my church will takeover of the Government?
Frankly, it’s things like the perpetuation of this Salon article that make some uneducated Mormons buy into the culture of the WHP, and it’s even worse for more non-Mormons who believe it, when they state that the Church leaders teach it.
If the conservative movement believes that the MSM lies to us on purpose, but then argues that the end justifies the means, when pushing a lefty article like this, then we are toast. RIght is right and wrong is wrong.
Please Keep the issues above grade.
The people who are purported to have heard/recorded the prophecy are the ones who have been “lambasted, discredited, torn to shreds, denounced, etc.”.
I’ve seen the word “alleged” used quite often when it comes to referring to the prophecy coming from JS.
What is curious to me though is this; if the prophecy was/is of no consequence, that the church has disavowed it, why then, did so many subsequent presidents(so-called prophets) reference the prophecy?
LOL, Mormons and the straying from the truth to advance the cult.
I don’t think the goofy cult “will takeover the Government”, but articles like this go a long way to show what Mormons believe, and what many have believed for 170 years and one of the reasons why they follow Romney so devotedly.
Anyone looking at your posting history can see your own devotion to Bishop Romney and his Presidential aspirations.
White Horse? Romney? Why settle for only half of a horse?!
