IS IT me, or is America’s 2012 presidential campaign throwing more religious lunatics into sharp relief than any in the past?
Take, for example, the Rev O’Neal Dozier, a wingnut described here as “a firebrand social conservative”, who heads the Worldwide Christian Center in Pompano Beach, Florida. Dozier loathes Islam and cares even less for The Gays:
Dozier, honorary chairman of wannabe president Rick Santorum’s Florida campaign, once declared that homosexuality was:
Something so nasty and disgusting that it makes God want to vomit.
Santorum, “a conservative darling in the Republican presidential race”, yesterday spoke from the pulpit at Dozier’s Church.
At a Reclaiming America convention in 2003, Dozier declared that:
We should take control of every facet of society.
He added that God was:
100 percent for capital punishment. Oh, yeah, God knew some were going to slip through, a few innocent ones. He knew that. But you cannot have a society without capital punishment.
He also said:
God would never ordain a government to take from the rich to give to the poor, you see, so therefore God is not a socialist. God is not a Robin Hood.
After Santorum said his piece at the Worldwide Christian Center, Dozier told the Palm Beach Post that Mitt Romney was bound not for the White House, but for hell:
You can look at the June Gallup poll that shows the people have already spoken – 22 percent of the electorate will not vote for a Mormon.
Blacks are not going to vote for anyone of the Mormon faith. The book of Mormon says the Negro skin is cursed.
