“Sen. Raphael Warnock’s church is a part of a leftist coalition that supports Critical Race Theory (CRT) and suggests the first slave ship’s arrival in the U.S. is “an equally definitive” founding event as the writing of the Declaration of Independence or Constitution.
“The Georgia Democrat is the senior pastor at Atlanta’s Ebenezer Baptist Church, the ‘spiritual home of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’ The church is a member of the Progressive National Baptist Convention (PNBC), a body of leftist faith groups that back such causes as CRT and ending U.S. military aid to Israel.
“Warnock, as the head of Ebenezer Baptist Church, had close ties to the PNBC and served as the chairman of the convention’s Social Justice Commission as recently as 2018. Later that year, he delivered the keynote address to PNBC’s annual meeting.
“In 2021, the PNBC passed a ‘Resolution in Support of Critical Race Theory.’ The resolution states that CRT is “taught primarily at Law Schools” and is not taught at all in any elementary or high schools in the U.S. Warnock delivered the keynote address to PNBC’s annual meeting the year the resolution was adopted.”
“Raphael Warnock proves time and again that he is too extreme for the state of Georgia.” said campaign spokesman Will Kiley. “Warnock’s support of radical ideologies like CRT shows just how out of touch he is with the needs of everyday Georgians. Georgia needs a Senator who will show up every day for Georgia, not Biden’s woke agenda.”
