From faith-based prison to faith-based courts in Jeb Bush's Florida?

The Miami Daily Business Review reported Jan. 8 that Broward Judicial Nomination Commission (JNC) member O’Neal Dozier has asked several candidates for Broward County judgeships inappropriate questions about their religious beliefs, such as whether they attend church and are “God-fearing.” ...

Dozier has repeatedly expressed an intolerant and theocratic approach to government. According to a report in the New Times Broward-Palm Beach late last year, Dozier told a Religious Right gathering, “We as Christians must take control of the government. We should be the ones in charge of the government.”

New Times said Dozier also observed that homosexuality is “something so nasty and disgusting that it makes God want to vomit.”

According to the more recent Miami Business Review article, Dozier said, “There is no such animal as separation of church and state in the Constitution.”

Dozier was appointed to the judicial nomination commission by Gov. Bush....
