'Who really is their God?': Raphael Warnock criticizes pro-Trump Evangelical Christians

"These same folks who raised these issues around family values and private morality are the ones who are speaking as if he is the Messiah of God."

Senator Raphael Warnock (D-GA) took aim at pro-Trump Evangelical Christians during a recent interview with The New Yorker. He questioned how they could "morally" stand by their Christian convictions and support the former president, who he described as an adulterous convicted felon. He then accused them of treating Trump as if he were "the Messiah of God."

Sen. Warnock, a Baptist pastor in Atlanta, joined host David Remnick of The New Yorker Radio Hour to discuss the nation's "moral and spiritual" battle. While the senator slammed conservative Christians for supporting the presumptive GOP nominee, he did not mention any critical issues that conservatives are concerned about, such as removing God from schools, the LGBTQ indoctrination of minors, destroying the traditional nuclear family, and more.

Instead, Sen. Warnock accused Evangelical Christians of treating Trump as "the Messiah of God," and likened them to Christians who were pro-slavery and pro-segregation back in the day.

"The enormous number of people of earnest faith, who look at someone who lives the way he does, who's now been convicted of multiple felonies. How do you analyze that?" Remnick asked Warnock.

"Well, there were a number of Christians, a whole lot of Christians, who were pro-slavery," said Warnock. "And, there are a whole lot of Christians who were pro-segregation."

"There's a recurring line by Martin Luther King, Jr in his letter from the Birmingham jail. He says it a few times, and in his speeches - he says, 'I am so disappointed in the American church. What kind of people worship there? Who really is their God?'" he continued.

The senator then paraphrased Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., saying, "That's the question for this moment. Who really is their God? Particularly when we've been told by a lot of folks on the far right for years that their focus is family values."

Warnock proceeded to elaborate on his observations regarding the Evangelicals who support Trump, their treatment of the impoverished, and their historical embrace of "matters of private morality, one's conduct around issues of human sexuality, marriage, and the like."

"And those same people now are lined up behind Donald Trump. A man who has had several marriages, who found himself caught up in the crosshairs of his decision to have an affair with a porn star, and these same folks who raised these issues around family values and private morality are the ones who are speaking as if he is the Messiah of God," said Warnock.

"I think the question that Doctor King asked all those years ago is especially relevant at this moment: Who really is their God?" Warnock concluded.
