Florida Pastor calling out Romney for his Religion

This story has already stirred the proverbial pot. This past weekend, I received a press release from Pastor O'Neal Dozier of the World Wide Christian Center (TWCC) in Pompano Beach, FL (Fort Lauderdale). In it he announced that he would be holding a press conference today at which he would identify Mormonism as a "racist" religion.

Looks like he's garnered some attention from overseas...

Via the Daily Mail:
A reverend has called on Mitt Romney to give up Mormonism because the religion is prejudiced against African-Americans, Native Americans and the Jewish community.

Reverend O'Neal Dozier, who has been a vocal supporter of Rick Santorum, said black voters will never stand behind the former Massachusetts governor because of his beliefs.

The pastor has planned a news conference tomorrow at the Worldwide Christian Center Church in Pompano Beach, Florida.
 NRO's Jim Geraghty has picked it up too. He had this to say about the Dozier press release:
You can find those verses objectionable. Of course, there are plenty of other verses of the Bible, Torah, and Koran that other Americans find objectionable. You can find the practice of baptizing the dead objectionable (I certainly do). But there are plenty of other practices of other faiths that other Americans find objectionable. Declaring “God d*** America” comes to mind.

Has any other presidential candidate been greeted with religious leaders demanding he renounce his faith? In the name of national tolerance and harmony?
A point Geraghty misses here is that if it was right to vet Wright, isn't it right to vet Mormonsim? Is it not a double standard to give one a pass and the other a healthy dose of questions?

The New York Daily News picked up the story as well:
Dozier, a senior pastor of The Worldwide Christian Center Church in Pompano Beach, also said Romney's Mormonism will serve as Obama's "secret weapon" if Romney does secure a nomination and the pair faces off in the upcoming presidential race.

"We believe that a Romney Presidential nomination for the Republican Party would widen the racial divide to a point of no return, because the Republican Party would be viewed as a racist political party," the statement continues. "Romney's nomination would cause the erroneous view that has long existed in the minds of black people, that the Republican Party is prejudice, to become a reality.

"Also, if Romney gets the nomination, President Obama's super pacs [Police Action Committees\] will educate the American people about his racist religion and he will probably lose to Obama."
Or this, from MediaIte:
Rev. Dozier’s primary issue with the Mormon religion, according to the press release he circulated today, is what he views as its history of racist and xenophobic practices. “The Mormon religion is prejudiced against Blacks, Jews and the Native American Indians,” he writes. “These allegations are substantiated and validated by the writings of the former Prophets and Seers of the Mormon Church.”
Salt Lake Tribune...
"The Mormon religion is prejudiced against blacks, Jews and the Native American Indians," Dozier says in a release previewing the news conference. "These allegations are substantiated and validated by the writings of the former prophets and seers of the Mormon church."
This could get interesting...

Northern Sudan demanding Christians to leave

This bit of news is particularly relevant in light of the viral Kony 2012 video which has been endorsed by the Obama administration. Northern Sudan, led by the Muslim Brotherhood's Omar al-Bashir, is now threatening all Christians to leave the region in less than a month. Remember, as long as the world's focus is on Joseph Kony, it's off Bashir, which could prove deadly to thousands of Sudanese Christians.

Via ENI News:
Sudanese Christians who have barely a month to leave the north or risk being treated as foreigners are starting to move, but Christian leaders are concerned that the 8 April deadline set by Islamic-majority Sudan is unrealistic.

"We are very concerned. Moving is not easy ... people have children in school. They have homes ... It is almost impossible," Roman Catholic Bishop Daniel Adwok, the Khartoum archdiocese auxiliary told ENInews in a telephone interview on 7 March.

Sudan in February announced the deadline for the former citizens it had stripped of nationality after South Sudan's January 2011 vote to secede. The ultimatum will affect an estimated 500,000-700,000 people, who are mainly Christians of southern origin that still live in the north.

Many of them fled north during the long civil war fought between the Government of Sudan and the former rebels, the Sudan People's Liberation Movement. They have lived there for decades together with children who were born there. Few have ties with South Sudan.
Remember, Machine Gun Preacher Sam Childers said the following in response to the now insanely viral Kony 2012 video:
"If all eyes are not focused on South Sudan, what Bashir is doing there, within the next two months, we could have another genocide in South Sudan. It needs to be stopped NOW."
Looks like he's right...

Last month, the Sudan Tribune reported that the Muslim Brotherhood was leaning on Bashir hard to enforce Sharia law. In essence, the forcing of Northern Christians from their homes is a directive coming straight from the same Muslim Brotherhood that the Obama administration's policies have benefited at practically every turn.

This topic dominated my March 11th program which is available for mp3 download.

Back to the Kony 2012 video, endorsed by both P. Diddy and Oprah. Focusing on Kony exclusively is counter-productive and actually helps Bashir (Muslim Brotherhood) by taking the spotlight off of Sudan. It's like treating a leg infected with gangrene by cutting off the little toe and then telling the patient that he's cured.

Again, here's the Kony 2012 video that the Obama administration supports. Yes, Kony represents the little toe in the gangrene allegory:

Drip, Drip, Drip... Number of Congressmen calling on Holder to Resign or requesting "No Confidence" vote grows to 120

While there hasn't been much news on the Fast and Furious front in recent weeks, that doesn't mean it's going away. In fact, the number of congressmen who have either called for Eric Holder's resignation or a "no confidence" vote has climbed, albeit quietly, again. The number has now reached 120.

Via the Daily Caller:
Republican Reps. Reid Ribble of Wisconsin and Bob Goodlatte of Virginia have signed on to a House resolution of “no confidence” in Attorney General Eric Holder over his role in Operation Fast and Furious.

With their signatures, a total of 120 U.S. House members have now either publicly demanded Holder’s resignation, expressed no confidence in his job performance via a formal House resolution, or both.

That amounts to more than a quarter of the U.S. House of Representatives and nearly half of the Republican caucus. Three U.S. senators — Johnny Isakson of Georgia, Jim DeMint of South Carolina and James Inhofe of Oklahoma — have also called for Holder to resign. So have two sitting governors, Rick Perry of Texas and Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, and all major Republican presidential candidates.
Why is this all so relevant today? In part, because the bigger it gets, the more it will force House Speaker John Boehner to act. Amidst rumors that Boehner has asked Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa to back off, coupled with the Speaker's obvious attempts to avoid commenting much on the investigation, House Republicans are slowing moving toward getting 218 votes.

If that 218 number were to be reached, Boehner would actually be bucking not just a majority of Republicans but a majority of the House itself if he didn't either hold a vote on the "no confidence" resolution or draft articles of impeachment. With 120 already on record, only 98 more are needed to reach that 218 number.

Has your congressman called for Holder's resignation? If not, contact him/her and demand it.

Once 218 votes are reached, Boehner will almost be forced to act, whether he wants to or not.

Here is video of Boehner last month. Notice how he didn't answer the question. It's moments like this that lead people to believe he doesn't want to deal with Fast and Furious.
