A group of over two dozen black ministers has signed a letter expressing strong criticism of Georgia Senate candidate Raphael Warnock over his support for abortion.
Warnock is headed for a January runoff election against Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler.
“Unborn Black, Brown and White lives are so much more than clumps of cells, burdensome inconveniences, or health problems,” the ministers wrote to the radical Democrat, who is also a reverend.
“They are sacred human persons endowed by God with inalienable dignity and worth,” the letter continues. “We implore you to uphold the Biblical defense of life and to fight against the systemic racism of abortion.”
The ministers called Warnock’s views a “grave error of judgment and a lapse in pastoral responsibility.”

Raphael Warnock’s Support For Abortion Does Not Go Over Well With These Black Ministers
Raphael Warnock has voiced repeated support for abortion throughout his campaign for the Georgia Senate.
“I’m a pro-choice pastor,” Warnock tweeted last month, “and I believe that a hospital room is way too small for a woman, her doctor, and the United States government.”
Georgia Republican Congressman Doug Collins, himself a former pastor for over 11 years, blasted Warnock for such a ridiculous stance.
“There is no such thing as a pro-choice pastor. What you have is a lie from the bed of Hell,” he said at a campaign rally for Loeffler. “It is time to send it back to Ebenezer Baptist Church.”

Warnock’s Other Radical Views
Aside from his stance on abortion not squaring with his religious views, Raphael Warnock has made some other controversial comments in the past.
The Washington Free Beacon reported that in 2011, Warnock preached that Americans cannot serve God while also serving in the U.S. military.
“America, nobody can serve God and the military,” video shows the Georgia Democrat saying at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta. “You can’t serve God and money. You cannot serve God and mammon at the same time.”
“Nobody can serve God and the military.”
Those are the words of Radical Raphael Warnock, amazingly a candidate for U.S. Senate.

He was also accused of hindering a police investigation into child abuse, in which charges were later dropped, and expressed support for anti-Semite and anti-American pastor Jeremiah “God damn America” Wright.
Hardly the kind of actions one would expect from a pastor.
The letter from the black ministers implores Rev. Warnock to reconsider his stance on abortion.
A statement from the spokesman for the Georgia Democrat indicates he will not do so.
“Rev. Warnock believes a patient’s room is too small a place for a woman, her doctor, and the US government and that these are deeply personal health care decisions — not political ones,” they told the New York Post.
That’s practically word-for-word what the candidate said himself. Warnock’s campaign certainly has his pro-abortion talking points down. Perhaps, however, they should stop pretending he is a pastor. Or at least one who actually follows his faith.
