All of the Democrats’ hopes are reliant on an awful radical candidate.
They’re trying their best to whitewash his past.
These five horrifying anti-American words could destroy a big Democrat victory.
The Democrat Senate candidate Raphael Warnock has shown with his radical statements that he doesn’t support Americans.
In November, a clip surfaced of Warnock saying that Americans could not serve God and the military at the same time in 2011.
“America, nobody, can serve God and the military,” Warnock said in a 2011 sermon at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia. “You can’t serve God and money. You cannot serve God and mammon at the same time.”
However, this isn’t the only awful statement he’s made. He said that Jeremiah Wright’s “God Damn America” sermon was “Christian preaching at its best.”
In the video clip, which was posted to YouTube by The Black Church Center for Justice and Equality in 2014, Warnock began by asserting, “During the rough and tumble of presidential politics in 2008, what was for many Americans, black and white, a strange new term emerged in the national conversation: black theology. Owing to the pervasive reach of the electronic media and the political machinations of powerful partisan interests caught up in a colossal contest for control over the most powerful nation on earth, millions of Americans, indeed, people around the globe were exposed to a thirty-second clip of a fiery black preacher preaching to his own congregation on a Sunday morning. Extracted from its context and looped to the point of ad nauseam was the most provocative phrase, you heard it over and over again: ‘God Damn America.’”
Warnock is supporting a message which was neither Christian nor American.
“The black church, so central to black life, yet barely understood by mainstream America was thrust to the center of a national dialogue,” Warnock continued. “Part of the disconnect that happened in the conversation after Fox News and other made Jeremiah Wright’s sermon famous, part of the disconnect was cultural … in this way there was a disconnect between black and white Americans as the latter were televisually transported to a black church on any given Sunday morning where preachers are expected, even encouraged, to speak the truth, to tell Pharoah, tell it like it is with clarity, creativity and passion.”
Warnock went on to compare Wright’s “God Damn America” sermon to historic Christian writings.
“So in that sense, Jeremiah Wright, whose sermon, by the way, if you haven’t read the whole thing, is a very thoughtful and insightful piece on the relationship between God and government, it’s a piece that I would situate in the continuum with St. Augustine’s ‘City of God’ and Martin Luther’s ‘Temple Authority,’ and to what extent it should be obeyed, the reflections of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and his context – some of it situated it in the continuum of Malcom. But I think it’s Christian preaching at its best.”
