Rev. Raphael Warnock, one of two Democratic Party candidates for Senate in the upcoming Georgia runoffs, preached from his pulpit in the Ebenezer Baptist Church in 2017 that he “came to dismantle the value system” of the American “empire.” Warnock criticized other Christians for being focused on “two or three issues” — to the exclusion, he claimed, of poverty. Commenting on the Bible’s admonition that the poor would always be “with you,” Warnock likened the U.S. to the evil Roman Empire of Herod’s day (1:14:45 to 1:16:05):

I want you to hear me now, because most of Christian America is focused on two or three issues. Meanwhile, the Bible spends most of its time talking about how to treat the poor, the struggling, and the stranger. And so, don’t misinterpret what Jesus is saying. Jesus is saying you will always have the poor with you, not because God ordained it; not because it is what it is, and that’s the way it has to be; the poor are with you because of the evils and the excesses of the empire. And I came to dismantle the value system of the empire. I already told you that I came to preach good news to the poor, to open the eyes of the blind, and to set the captives free, and to preach the year of the Lord’s freedom. In other words, I came to dismantle the value system of the empire. But here’s the problem: the religious folk who should be fighting with me against the empire are in cahoots with the empire.

Warnock is running against incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA).

SICK: Mentor of Georgia Democratic Senate Candidate Raphael Warnock Advocated for the “DESTRUCTION of Everything White”


Reported by  

The late mentor of Raphael Warnock, pastor and one of Georgia’s Democratic candidates for US Senate, had advocated for the “destruction of everything white” and demonized white Christians as “satanic.”

James Hal Cone, who passed away in 2018, was a pastor, professor, and passionate defender of “black liberation theology,” which he outlined in his 1969 book Black Theology and Black Power. Warnock has praised Cone as a “poignant and powerful voice of high spiritual magnitude.

Cone has a Wikipedia page that describes his black liberation theology:

His message was that Black Power, defined as black people asserting the humanity that white supremacy denied, was the gospel in America. Jesus came to liberate the oppressed, advocating the same thing as Black Power. He argued that white American churches preached a gospel based on white supremacy, antithetical to the gospel of Jesus. Cone’s work was influential from the time of the book’s publication, and his work remains influential today. His work has been both used and critiqued inside and outside the African-American theological community.

The Washington Free Beacon dug up the following quotes from Black Theology and Black Power:

“The white God is an idol created by racists, and we blacks must perform the iconoclastic task of smashing false idols. White religionists are not capable of perceiving the blackness of God, because their satanic whiteness is a denial of the very essence of divinity.”

“There will be no peace in America until white people begin to hate their whiteness, asking from the depths of their being: ‘How can we become black?’”

“If there is one brutal fact that the centuries of white oppression have taught blacks, it is that whites are incapable of making any valid judgements about human existence. The goal of black theology is the destruction of everything white, so that blacks can be liberated from alien gods.”

“With the assurance that God is on our side, we can begin to make ready for the inevitable—the decisive encounter between white and black existence. White appeals to ‘wait and talk it over’ are irrelevant when children are dying and men and women are being tortured. We will not let whitey cool this one with his pious love ethic but will seek to enhance our hostility, bringing it to its full manifestation.”

“We have reached our limit of tolerance, and if it means death with dignity, or life with humiliation, we choose the former. And if that is the choice, we will take out some honkies with us.”

The Free Beacon also notes that Raphael Warnock cited Cone’s book over a dozen times in his 2013 book titled The Divided Mind of the Black Church.

Warnock is also being questioned for his relationship to Jeremiah Wright, who was Barack Obama’s former pastor in Chicago and a controversial figure for past comments and a 2008 speech titled “God Damn America.”

Despite being a first-time candidate for office, Warnock is heading for a January runoff against sitting senator Kelly Loeffler, as neither obtained 50 percent of the vote on November 3.
