Jesus endorses Florida candidate via holy mouthpiece
Pat Robertson ain't got the market cornered on crazy. The Rev. O'Neal Dozier, pastor of the Worldwide Christian Center in Pompano Beach, introduced Florida gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist yesterday by explaining that two years ago, the Lord came to him in a dream to tell him that Crist would be Florida's next governor.
The Rev. O'Neal Dozier said that before the dream he did not know Crist, nor had Crist made known his plans to run for governor.
"The Lord Jesus spoke to me and he said 'There's something I want you to know,'" said Dozier... "'Charlie Crist will be the next governor of the state of Florida.' ...I introduce to you, as the Lord Jesus has said, the next governor of the state of Florida, Charlie Crist."Crist responded to the heaven-sent endorsement by saying, "Well, as they say, the praise doesn't get any higher." Something--or someone--is high, anyway.
Current Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who is apparently familiar with Dozier, having appointed him to a group that nominates judges in South Florida, called the conduit for Christ and endorser of Crist "very sincere" and " a good man." Who maybe needs a vacation.
(More evidence the Left is hostile to religion! someone cries. To which I can only respond, "Better to go with me on this one. If Crist doesn't win, then what? You really want the proof of God resting on the pronouncements of how an election will turn out in Florida?")
This of course launched yet another Religion-Off, with the Dem candidates trying to prove their godly credentials as well.
Democrats running for the seat Bush is leaving due to term limits - state Sen. Rod Smith and U.S. Rep. Jim Davis - did not attend, though Smith's son-in-law, the Rev. Graham Glover, spoke on his behalf.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ Smith's son-in-law acknowledged that Democrats haven't always been seen as strong advocates of faith, but said Smith is unquestionably a religious man.
"It is sad when we're told that our faith can't be brought to the table, that our values can't be front and center," said Glover, a Lutheran. "(Smith) is a man who loves his lord, he is a man who loves his family. As a Southern Baptist, he can probably quote scripture a whole lot better than I can."Yeah, sure--but has God endorsed him? I didn't think so.
