    Hi,
    Based solely on memory, I believe the mention of UFOs are connected to Johnny Smith's mother and her religious literature. I remember Johnny making reference to pamphlets that she read that linked the Rapture to alien abduction.

    Sorry, I can't tell you what King knows or doesn't know, haha. I will say that there were many strange cults that popped up in the 1950s that played off of people's fears of 'outsiders' and UFOs. There were many movies about this subject at that time, too.
    There really are people that believe in the Rapture from scripture (although that particular term isn't used) and others that have decided that this future event will be linked to UFOs and/or alien abduction.

    ...I think it was more of a nod to Dad's The Stand....but the Kool-Aid idea isn't far-fetched either, as cult mindbending seems to be universal.....
