These days, it seems like anyone can call themselves pastor. Sen. Raphael Warnock, D-GA), plunged further into stupidity in a Thursday interview about abortion. This further demonstrated that pro-abortion supporters don’t have any compelling arguments to support their position.
In a conversation with NPR’s Michel Martin on PBS, Warnock was asked about pro-life Christians and the reason for President Joe Biden’s plummeting approval ratings.
“How do you understand the fact that, at this juncture in our history, there are people who—who– say they are animated by the same faith. They love the same God, the same Savior and say it’s leading them to want to ban abortion or reconsider the possibility of same-sex marriage. How do you understand that?”
Senator responded by raising the civil rights and slavery debates. “There were Christians on both sides of the struggle around abolition. There were Christians on both sides of the Civil Rights Movement,” he said.
Warnock went on:
“And so, it is this basic commitment to humanity in all of its variations, in all of its expressions that guides the work that I do around reproductive justice, around the dignity of members of the LGBTQ+ community. This is Dr. King’s recognition of the fact that all are bound in one garment of destiny. What happens to one person directly impacts all others indirectly. And so, I think that’s—that’s– the work and that’s the vision that inspires what I do every single day.”
After serving up that meaningless word salad, the senator then answered a question about the president’s unpopularity. “How do you understand the fact that, for example, his polling numbers are as low as they are when he’s managed to do things that his predecessor long promised and didn’t accomplish?” Martin asked.
Instead of answering the question, the lawmaker danced about and bucked around. “Here’s what I refuse to do, and that is to make the politics about me. And I really do mean that,” he said.
Pro-abortion supporters are not doing their best.
It is absurd to think that mothers who want to have their children killed are like those who opposed slavery or Jim Crow. The Civil Rights movement was pushing to equal legal status for African Americans. Abolitionists were fighting the liberation of slaves. They didn’t want to kill more people.
Warnock’s remarks are particularly egregious considering the fact that he holds himself up as a crusader for black Americans, while simultaneously pushing for more black women to kill their children. If you are familiar with abortion, then you know that black babies account for a large percentage of abortion-related deaths. Instead of supporting alternatives to abortion like pregnancy centers and churches who specialize in helping mothers, Warnock would rather see these lives snuffed out. Warnock is not better than white progressives to whom he tap-dances.
