Is Rev. O'Neal Dozier asking Santorum to renounce his own homophobic religion?

Racism, homophobia, anti-women, anti-equality; shouldn't religion be above these things?

What happened to religion being about loving thy neighbor?

So who gave him the position or authority to call upon someone else to renounce his religion? Will right wing Protestants renounce their Doctrine of Original Sin (the doctrine which asks us all to blindly accept guilt, without proof, for the transgression of Adam)?

i'll bet this guy is a first class person. bring it on. i can't believe santorum doesn't denounce him. ricky won't because he can't help himself from saying idiotic things himself.

BO has his Jeremiah Wright, Santorum has his O'Neal Dozier

Google "Worldwide Christian Center Pompano Beach" to learn about Dozier and his church. He is 63, black, a Vietnam vet, former NFL player, bodybuilder, lawyer and law school teacher. His wife, known as the First Lady, is also a lawyer. The Worldwide Christian Center has about 600 members.

His obsession for linking religion and racism is quite intriguing. He was the plaintiff in a lawsuit to stop the construction of a mosque in a mainly black neighborhood, saying its purpose was "recruitment of angry black people" and "breeding terrorists." Part of the church's vision statement is to "educate the community about the dangers of Islamic Fascism."

I'm wondering if Santorum was dumb enough to put Dozier up to this, or if Dozier was dumb enough to jam his foot into his mouth up to the kneecap and give Santorum something new to hem and haw over and disavow and try to shove under the rug.

This presidential campaign is actually getting interesting, not because any of either party's main candidates are particularly impressive, but for all the loose cannons we are getting to see in action and the freak show we are being treated to.

Is Rick Santorum desperate enough to embrace this pastors bigotry?

Hey, it wasn't the Mormons that spawned the KKK.

I think he forgot Catholics, Muslims, Jehovah Whiteness, Protestants, Asians, India Indians, Eskimos, Zebras and anything else he forgot to mention in his list that he knows better than Mitt himself. Better throw in Europeans, Russians and all handicapped people for good measure as well.

Of course there is no prejudice on his part on Mormons. Just cold hard facts.

Can this pastor really be that uninformed. Unbelievable.

Evangelicals have as many different beliefs as they do members. Rick Santorum knew this when he signed up for their help with votes and money.

The LDS Church is not racist
