Georgia Democrat Senate candidate Rev. Raphael Warnock’s past writings have come to light in which he promotes Marxist views amid an abundance of racially-charged language, according to Breitbart News.
Warnock, senior pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church who is challenging Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler in the Senate runoff race, authored a book in 2014 called The Divided Mind of the Black Church: Theology, Piety, and Public Witness. In it he praises Marxism as a way to “teach the black church,” and criticizes one scholar for trivializing “black struggle against the obduracy of white capitalistic forces.”
“To be sure, the Marxist critique has much to teach the black church,” Warnock wrote. “Indeed, it has played an important role in the maturation of black theology as an intellectual discipline, deepened black theology’s apprehension of the interconnectivity of racial and class oppression and provided critical tools for a black church that has yet to awaken to a substantive third world consciousness.”
Warnock has also described Dr. James Cone, who repeatedly defended Marxism and used provocative anti-white language, as his “mentor.” Cone served as Warnock’s academic adviser at the Union Theological Seminary, and Warnock considered Cone to be the “father of black theology.”
In one book, Cone called for the “total reconstruction of society along the lines of democratic socialism.” In another, Cone argued that salvation comes from being like God and becoming “black” — that is, adopting total political solidarity with the black community. He determined that “satanic whiteness” makes “white religionists” incapable of “perceiving the blackness of God”; therefore, they must purge themselves of said whiteness: “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?’”
Cone advised Warnock’s 2006 dissertation, “The Mission of the Black Church: A Discussion Among Black Theologians and Black Pastors,” which became the basis for Warnock’s book. The dissertation was filled with race-fueled analysis of the “black church” and the “white church,” including blaming “white churches” for their “complicity and active participation” in white supremacy.
Warnock is a race-mongering Communist who cannot be allowed to win the runoff race in Georgia. It is time Americans began purging these anti-American radicals from our government.
