Crist severs ties with Dozier



Given that the Rev. O'Neal Dozier had said Jesus told him Charlie Crist would be the next governor, maybe it was logical Crist this summer declined at bash the Broward minister for calling Islam a cult. Why would you want to tick off someone with a direct line to the Lord Jesus? Gov. Jeb Bush pulled Dozier from a judical nominating commission, but Crist declined to remove him from his campaign's family policy advisory committee.

But now that Dozier has taken to distributing comic books that depict Islam as a dangerous religion that Christians should fear and fight, Crist has decided enough is enough. He said Friday he has yanked Dozier from his campaign committee, calling the comics "insensitive to say the least.''
