Santorum co-chair: Romney should ‘renounce his racist Mormon religion’
An African-American pastor affiliated with Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum is demanding that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney “renounce his racist Mormon religion.”
At a press conference on Monday, Rev. O’Neal Dozier, who is an honorary chairman of Santorum’s Florida campaign, said that he was speaking out to “foster and maintain good race relations here in America.”
“The Mormon religion is prejudiced against blacks, Jews and native Americans,” Dozier insisted, adding that Romney’s nomination would widen the racial divide because “the Republican Party would be viewed as a racist political party.”
“Romney’s nomination would cause the erroneous view that has long existed in the minds of black people that the Republican Party is prejudiced to become a reality. Why? Because Romney will become the face and the leader of the Republican Party.”
Dozier, however, is also been accused of a different kind of bigotry.
In a 2003 Broward-Palm Beach New Times report, he was quoted as saying that homosexuality was “something so nasty and disgusting that it makes God want to vomit.”
Santorum kicked off his Florida campaign in January with a stop at Dozier’s Worldwide Christian Center in Pompano Beach.
“Blacks are not going to vote for anyone of the Mormon faith,” the pastor said during the event.
Does avoiding fried pork rinds make me a secret Muslim?
@Jesuswalksinidaho: Or Jew. Take your pick.
Another reason why their side is losing–they don’t know the enemy.
Nojo, you left out the best part of the story – the percentage of GOP voters in those two states who think interracial marriage should be illegal. Almost as high as the percent who think Black Eagle is a Seecret Mooslem.
Speaking of incredibly confused people, I give you the Frothy Mix Florida co-chair:
DOZIER: God does not have the Robin Hood mentality. That is a socialist mentality. There is no place in the bible, Brook, where God orders — even mandates — for the rich to give their monies to the poor or someone take their monies from them.
Above, BTW, is from a so-called “Reverend” who took a break from whinging about how picking Mittens would *suddenly* make the GOP look racist to instead demonstrate his utter ignorance of the message of the New Testament.
@Hank Hosfield: Dude!
Fuck, now I can’t lie about Charlie’s Pool Hall anymore. Not when there’s somebody to call me on it.
@nojo: You could have been the king of Charlie’s, for all I know. I hit that place about three times in my life. I’ll try not to out you. By the way, I just outed you on the Woody deal before I saw this. Sorry.
@Hank Hosfield: Open secret. As everybody knows, I’m the U.S. Senator from Utah.
