Georgia Senate candidate Raphael Warnock, headed for a runoff against Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler, is getting called out for his radical views.
Politico reports that the GOP “has made his faith a defining element of his candidacy” and they seek “to make it his fatal flaw.”
First off, the fact that the media takes umbrage with making faith an element of a political race is entertaining coming off the heels of the left portraying Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett as something straight out of The Handmaid’s Tale.
Second, they’re not attacking his faith. They’re pointing out Warnock’s extremist views, of which there are many, some that encompass an inability to square those beliefs with his religion.
Take, for instance, Warnock’s role as a pastor while simultaneously advocating for abortion.
I’m a pro-choice pastor, and I believe that a hospital room is way too small for a woman, her doctor, and the United States government.

Georgia Senate Candidate Raphael Warnock’s Radical Views
Raphael Warnock’s radical views are not limited to a solitary comment here and there. His past is littered with controversial statements or actions involving his faith or the faith of others.
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.”
He said of Wright’s anti-American speech after 9/11 that it was simply a form of “truth-telling” and that the “social transformation that’s been the hallmark of Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s ministry” is “why we are happy to honor” him.
No, Politico, it isn’t the GOP that is attacking Warnock’s faith, it is Warnock that attacks everybody else’s.

Aside from the aforementioned appalling comments, Warnock seems to be a pleasant individual.
Except for …
- That time Warnock called police officers “gangsters and thugs” and “bullies.”
- That time he worked for a church that hosted and praised Fidel Castro.
- That time he was accused of hindering a police investigation into child abuse, in which charges were later dropped.

“Raphael Warnock has been exposed to be an extreme candidate,” said Jesse Hunt, communications director for the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
Hunt referenced Warnock’s “views, the rhetoric that he’s used and how he speaks about police officers and other issues on the ideological spectrum.”
