Georgia Senate candidate and “pro-choice pastor” Raphael Warnock has been strongly urged to repent of his “grave errors of judgement” by a slew of his fellow Black pastors and faith leaders.
According to a letter sent to Warnock on Friday and obtained by The Daily Caller, the group of ministers urged Warnock “to reconsider” his “public advocacy for abortion.”
“Unborn Black, brown and white lives are so much more than clumps of cells, burdensome inconveniences, or health problems,” the letter declares. “They are sacred human persons endowed by God with inalienable dignity and worth. We implore you to uphold the Biblical defense of life and to fight against the systemic racism of abortion.”
The primary signatory of the letter, Human Coalition Action’s Rev. Dean Nelson, was joined by over 25 Christian leaders based primarily in Georgia.
“As a ‘pastor,’ radical pro-abortion Raphael Warnock continues to deny the great commandment to love thy neighbor,” Cole Muzio, head of the Family Policy Alliance of Georgia, said in a statement following Warnock’s debate against Republican Georgia Sen. Kelly Loeffler. “Contrary to his stated faith, Warnock’s extremist views align with the political fringe: believing those that the psalmist declares were knit together in their mother’s womb can have their beating hearts silenced up to and even after birth.”
Georgia Life Alliance Action’s Joshua Edmonds added that if Warnock truly believed the Bible, “it should be impossible for him to arrive at any position other than that innocent babies should be protected by law.”
The letter continues, declaring that Warnock, as “a Christian pastor and as a Black leader,” has the obligation to “denounce the evil of abortion, which kills a disproportionate number of Black children.”
Warnock’s “open advocacy of abortion is a scandal to the faith and to the Black community,” the letter goes on.
“We applaud your commendable efforts to share Christ while pursuing political solutions to our most pressing problems today,” the letter concedes, “But precisely because we share so much in common with you, we feel compelled to confront your most recent statements concerning abortion.”
“You have gone on the record saying that you are a ‘pro-choice pastor’ who will ‘always fight for reproductive justice,’” the letter declares. “You have publicly expressed your views that abortion is an exercise of ‘human agency and freedom’ that is fully consistent with your role as a shepherd of God’s people. We believe these statements represent grave errors of judgment and a lapse in pastoral responsibility, and we entreat you to reconsider them.”
As of this writing, Warnock has not responded to the letter.
