Pastor/Senator Raphael Warnock, a Democrat from Georgia, Says What About Abortion?
Isn’t there some educational requirement to be a pastor anymore? Sen. Raphael Warnock, a Democrat from Florida, seems like he is a couple of fries short of a Happy Meal on abortion.
He is a prime example of how the left just doesn’t have a compelling argument supporting their agenda.
The pastor/senator was speaking with NPR’s Michel Martin on PBS. Warnock was asked about pro-life Christians and the reason for Joe Biden’s sinking approval ratings.
Martin asked, “How do you understand the fact that, at this juncture in our history, there are people who—who– say they are animated by the same faith. The same love of the same God and the same Savior who say that it is taking them in the direction of wanting to outlaw abortion, perhaps reconsider same-sex marriage. How do you understand that?”
The southern pastor started his response by bringing up debates over slavery and civil rights. “There were Christians on both sides of the struggle around abolition. There were Christians on both sides of the Civil Rights Movement,” he said.
OK…and back to the abortion question, please.
Warnock continued: “And so, it is this basic commitment to humanity in all of its variations, in all of its expressions that guides the work that I do around reproductive justice, around the dignity of members of the LGBTQ+ community. It is the recognition that Dr. King said, that we are tied in the single garment of destiny. That what happens to one directly affects all indirectly. And so, I think that’s—that’s– the work and that’s the vision that inspires what I do every single day.”
Hmmm…you might want to have a go at that again Mr. pastor/senator.
Just wait for what followed. He was asked to address the president’s abysmal approval rating.
“Here’s what I refuse to do, and that is to make the politics about me. And I really do mean that,” he said. Try again, pastor.
