If You Thought Alan Keyes Was Crazy…

Friends, let me introduce you to the Rev. O’Neal Dozier. He’s a conservative Christian and an active member of the Republican Party here in South Florida, and a backer of Mike Huckabee. He says he has three good reasons to oppose Hillary Clinton. It’s not because of her stand on health care, immigration, or the war on terrorism. It’s because of Islam, the family, and, to quote Melissa McEwan, because Senator Clinton has a vagina.

“At this time in America we need to have a good strong godly man to lead America, and not a woman,” he said.

Dozier’s gender reason No. 1 is Islam.

“This is a bad time for America to appoint a woman as president of the United States of America. And the reason this is a bad time is because we’re fighting Islamic fascism. And Islam has absolutely no respect for women. And to have a woman in that position, as a commander in chief of the military and the head of the free world, I’m afraid would cause the Islamic fascists, and the Islamic community to look at America as a weak nation.”

Gender reason two is feminism and the family.

“It will weaken the family greatly,” he said.

A Clinton presidency “would energize the feminist movement. It would energize that. It would strengthen them. It would also, I think, weaken the marriages out there that are barely hanging on with threads because I think that every time a man and a woman would get into a scrimmage, the woman would remind the man that, ‘OK. Now you’ve got to be careful because there’s a woman in the White House and we’re all sticking together.'”

Gender reason three is the military.

“It would weaken the military. Because I don’t believe that a lot of men would be willing to serve under a woman commander in chief of the military. I just don’t believe that. I think that you still have a lot of guys out there who feel like I feel that that’s not the role for a woman,” he said.

Skipping over number one as being a little late — what with invading Iraq and labeling anyone and everyone who’s not with us in the War on Terror as an “Islamofascist,” the ship on inflaming Islam has sailed — number two, energizing feminism, is my favorite. All this time I thought the threat to marriage was us queers, but no, according to Rev. Dozier, it’s the women who think that once Hillary’s in the White House, all you married men are going to have to do your own laundry, make your own damn dinner, and jerk off on occasion. Thanks, Hillary, for taking the onus off gay marriage and putting all the blame for the failure of the traditional family right were it belongs: on the uppity women and their controlling vaginas.

I haven’t made up my mind yet, but if electing Hillary Clinton will send Rev. Dozier even more around the bend, well…
