Broward pastor blasts Mitt Romney, Mormon religion
Sun Sentinel ^ | March 12, 2012 | Anthony Man

Posted on 03/12/2012 12:59:45 PM PDT by Colofornian

...Rev. O'Neal Dozier...sharply criticized the Mormon religion...

SNIP

...if Romney's the nominee, "I could not find it in my heart to vote for him. And I certainly would not vote for [President Barack] Obama. There are many people out there who feel the way I feel."

SNIP

He quoted repeatedly from the Book of Mormon and from writings of the prophet Brigham Young to back up his assertions that the church, formally known as the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints, is racist.

He said the writings accuse "God of cursing African people and causing them to have black skin in order for them not to be attractive to white people. These verses also accuse God of causing the black African people of being disgusting, detestable to white people…. [and] further degrades black, African people by saying they are uncultured, unattractive, unpleasant, lowlife, wild and unintelligent."

SNIP

"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 appeared...with signs he said depicted the top leaders of the Mormon Church. Of 104 faces on the chart, only one is black.

"The civil rights movement happened about 50 years ago. African-Americans are leaders in every facet of American culture and society. But the Mormon Church does not look like it has ever heard of the civil rights movement…"

"The Mormon Church looks like a white man's country club with a few black people running around doing work around the club. That's what it looks like. Is this the kind of racism we want guiding our country."...

If Republicans who won't vote for Obama are this vehement vs. Romney...just wait for the MSM & Dems to tear him apart.

And just think...all you Republicans can have the following association linked to you as well: "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?

From the article, citing this pastor: He said the writings accuse "God of cursing African people and causing them to have black skin in order for them not to be attractive to white people. These verses also accuse God of causing the black African people of being disgusting, detestable to white people…. [and] further degrades black, African people by saying they are uncultured, unattractive, unpleasant, lowlife, wild and unintelligent."

There ya go. Indirect from the pastor's mouth quoting the Mormon "prophets" supposedly acting as the DI-rect mouthpiece for the Mormon gods.

And the GoP wants these Mormon gods puppeteering the dude in the White House???

I would not vote for Mitt Romney, but it has nothing to do with his, admittedly whacky, religion. I would vote for a Mormon, Jew, Buddhist, Hindu, Jehovah’s Witness, atheist, animist, or even an Episcopalian, if they were genuinely conservative and I believed that they would follow the Constitution and work to restore a free market and limited government.

are there any other religions besides mormonism that have caught your investigative eye, that you could also enlighten us to; so, that we don’t fall under their spell either? do you have any Christian faiths that you could recommend to a seeker after the truth? thanks.

Likewise. I don’t care what religion someone is if they’re a conservative committed to principles of free-market and limited government.

Get used to it.

Specter came up with the "Wall of Sound" record publishing approach...the MSM will have this as its 24/7 "wall of political sound" thru the rest of 2012!

Well Mitt Romney cares...back in '07 he said he wouldn't put a Muslim on his Cabinet.

WOW. Wonder if they are taught this stuff or an opinion of Young. He can think however he wants but don't say God did this or that for it is NOT true. They truly don't know God. For the record, Moses' wife was Ethiopian/black. We are talking 'MOSES' here - who climbed the mountain and spent 40 days x 2 with HIM!!

formally known as the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints,

What are they called now?

Ethiopian, yes. Black, maybe; maybe not.

You see, there's TWO Ethiopias of history .. one was not the African Ethiopia -- one was south of the Caspian Sea (source: E. Jacquier, Catholic Encyclopedia, vol. 10)

I made the same mistake upon first read...The writer is correct: Formally...[not formerly]

here's the irony in all of this:

If the South was really still as racist as the MSM loves to portray it, why Romney would be their man. Here he was...his first 13 adult years...no peep...no objection...to Mormon exclusion of blacks.

And all of his adult life...no public objection to Mormon racist passages in the Pearl of Great Price (Book of Abraham, 1:24-27); Doctrine & Covenants (134:12); and numerous Book of Mormon verses...

So, it's actually the...
...Yankees and Mormon west voting for Mitt the racist...
...the wealthier GOP voters voting for Mitt the racist...
...the urban GOP voters voting for Mitt the racist...
...and the oldest age block of voters (over 65) voting for Mitt the racist...

I guess some things change -- and some things don't.

OK. Thanks. Now I learned two things today on your thread. For one - I see what isn’t there. :)

The one thing that bothers me about mormon mitt - he’s just not a bench warmer, he’s up the ladder. I despised him before I knew he was a mormom and that was before I learned about them. He belongs in the ‘rat party - according to his record in MA. Nothing R about him. I can see this article coming up if he gets the nod.

Exactly. I never heard of Dozier prior to this weekend.

If he can generate media heat on Romney, just think of what the outspoken NAACP types will do with MONTHS to work over Romney.

And the thing is...they'll be right for castigating Romney...which will be all the more grading...given that the GOP establishment should not have played into their race-card hands...who knows how many Dems have voted for Romney in the primaries?

Dozier is the guy the Ft. Lauderdale TEA party adores.

TeaPartyFTL@gmail.com is the lady’s e-mail who runs it. Nice super-conservative bunch. I hung out with them often.

I agree, I have no idea about the Mormon faith and that is a problem.

The MSM is drooling at the thought of Willard getting the nomination. It's not hard imagining Mittens being called to account for Mormon issues by the MSM, and they will use it against the Republican party and Conservatives and do everything they can to paint us as racist nuts.
