Dem Senate Candidate: America Must ‘Repent’ for ‘Worship of Whiteness’ By Tré Goins-Phillips for Faith Wire
GNN Note – It’s amazing how a few black people make theses outlandish, generalized statements and no one – I mean no one – calls them on it. This so-called “pastor” needs to repent – publicly – for his sin of racism. Not one person that I know “worships”, or even thinks about, their “whiteness” unless some uneducated drone makes a publicly announced racist remark. /END
Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Raphael Warnock, a pastor, is facing scrutiny once again — this time for a 2016 sermon clip in which he called on America to “repent” for its “worship of whiteness.”
Warnock, who leads Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, the congregation once pastored by the late Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., made the controversial comments during a sermon in which he condemned then-candidate Donald Trump and those who would vote for him.
“If it is true that a man who has dominated the news and poisoned the discussion for months needs to repent, then it is doubly true that a nation that can produce such a man and make his vitriol go viral needs to repent,” he said from the pulpit in October 2016. “No matter what happens next month, more than a third of the nation that would go along with this is reason to be afraid. America needs to repent for its worship of whiteness on full display this season.”
Earlier in the sermon, titled “How Towers Tumble,” Warnock, who is running against incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.), argued human diversity is responsible for our flourishing, according to the New York Post.
