J Golden Kimball was a member of the council of the seventy in the early 1900s. He was known for his colorful vocabulary and drinking coffee. The guy was the son of Heber C. Kimball (one of his 65 children). Today I was thinking this blog needs some J Golden Kimball stories so I did a quick search and this was one of my favorite little stories. I could have a section of this site dedicated to J Golden stories.
J. Golden Kimball was riding on a stagecoach somewhere in Missouri. A group of men were riding along with him, and they began to complain about the Mormons. Apparently, they didn’t realize a Mormon was among them. One man said he hated the Mormons with a passion, thus he was going to Texas to get away from them. Another man said he was going to Kentucky to get away from the Mormons. And finally, a third man said he was going to Boston to get away from all the “blankety-blank” Mormons. J Golden Kimball then said, “Why don’t you all just go to Hell because there won’t be any Mormons there.”
