" Let me make one thing absolutely clear to you: I believe what you believe. Your God is my God. I believe that Jesus Christ was the Messiah and the Son of God, crucified for our sins, and resurrected for our salvation. And I believe that He will return to earth to judge the living and the dead.
But my Church offers a further revelation: We believe that when Jesus
Christ returns to earth, He will return, not to Jerusalem, or to
Baghdad, but to this great nation—and His first stop will be Jackson
County, Missouri. The LDS Church teaches that the Garden of Eden itself
was in Missouri! Friends, it is a marvelous vision. Some Christians
profess not to like this teaching. But I ask you, where would you rather
the Garden of Eden be, in the great state of Missouri or in some
hellhole in the Middle East?"
