The malicious falsehoods that the Rev. O’Neal Dozier spouts about the Islamic religion belie his allegiance to the tenets of the Christian religion that he purports to practice.
The Rev. Dozier is free to believe that Islam is a “cult,” as he called it on talk radio last week, but his openly expressed views deserve condemnation. Gov. Jeb Bush, who appointed the Rev. Dozier to the Broward County Judicial Nominating Commission, was absolutely right to share his concerns about such insensitive statements. This, apparently, prompted Rev. Dozier’s resignation late Sunday from the JNC, and not a moment too soon. The minister’s anti-Islam bias, and other questionable behavior, disqualifies him for the post.
