Jesus for governor

Guess he's not that hot about the U.S. Senate candidacy of Katherine Harris. But, according to one pastor, Jesus has already cast his vote in the state's gubernatorial primary. Big surprise -- he's backing a Republican ...

A reverend who introduced Republican gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist during a breakfast with other pastors Monday said the Lord came to him in a dream two years ago and told him Crist would be the state's next governor.

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.

Crist's first words were, "Well, as they say, the praise doesn't get any higher."

Perhaps Jesus was feeling left out, jealous of Mohammed's vast political influence. More to the point, it seems as if Christians are jealous of the vast political influence of their Muslim counterparts.

It's like Hank Hill said after attending a Christian rock concert: "You aren't making Christianity better, you're just making rock and roll worse." Just substitute "politics" for "rock and roll" and the point stands.
