Just when you thought electoral politics couldn't get daffier, Jesus Christ, Eternal Word of the Father and Redeemer of the World has weighed in on the Florida gubernatorial contest. On the side of the Republicans. And through his favorite medium: a dream to a holy pastor.
Thanks to Americablog or this tidbit:
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, pastor of the Worldwide Christian Center in Pompano Beach. "'Charlie Crist will be the next governor of the state of Florida.'"
Since then, Dozier has spent time with Crist and talked with him at length about policy. He told the group that Crist would be uncompromising in his Christian faith.
"I introduce to you, as the Lord Jesus has said, the next governor of the state of Florida, Charlie Crist," Dozier said.
Holy crap! Dozier didn't know Crist, nor that he was running or guv? That's our Jesus, miracle man at the polls! Of course, Dozier could be a big fat liar, couldn't he. But naw -- a pastor lie? Or be nuts? lie? Unthinkable! Must be Jesus.
