Rev. O’Neal Dozier, an African-American pastor and honorary chairman for Rick Santorum’s presidential campaign, has called on Mitt Romney to renounce Mormonism because of its history of racism.

The Mormon Church has had an issue with race as it banned African Americans from becoming priests in their church until 1978, based on The Book Of Mormon which claimed that African Americans or Lamanites as they called them were cursed with dark skin for rebelling against God.

Raw Story reports:

“The Mormon religion is prejudiced against blacks, Jews and native Americans,” Dozier insisted, adding that Romney’s nomination would widen the racial divide because “the Republican Party would be viewed as a racist political party.”

“Romney’s nomination would cause the erroneous view that has long existed in the minds of black people that the Republican Party is prejudiced to become a reality. Why? Because Romney will become the face and the leader of the Republican Party.”

In a statement released on Friday, the Florida pastor explained that The Book of Mormon “accuses God of cursing African people and causing them to have black skin in order for them not to be attractive to white people.”
