Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Raphael Warnock is pastor of the iconic Ebenezer Baptist Church, where Rev. Martin Luther King’s thundering sermons against racism still echo today.
King was silent on abortion (he was assassinated five years before Roe v Wade), but his niece Alveda says Dr. King was pro-life and pro-abstinence before marriage. That shouldn’t surprise us. King based his anti-racism civil rights campaign on biblical beliefs, so it’s natural he would have opposed the taking of any life.
But Warnock, as a Democrat, knows his electoral salvation lies with pro-choice women and he has taken a decidedly pro-choice position in the campaign. This has inspired Alveda King and two dozen other black ministers to send a letter to Warnock, pleading with him to obey the Bible’s teachings against abortion. Via – PJ Media
