Michael Brown on Why This Pro-Choice Pastor’s Theology Is Compromising and Confusing

Rev. Raphael Warnock (Rev. Raphael Warnock Facebook page)

It is one thing to be a radical, feminist atheist marching down the streets of D.C. and proclaiming your “right” to abortion. It is another thing to be a “pro-choice pastor,” as Senate-candidate Raphael Warnock claims to be, using the Bible to justify abortion. This is as morally compromised as it is theologically confused.

Yet Warnock is unashamed of his position, tweeting on Dec. 8, “I am a pro-choice pastor.” Worse still, as of this writing, his tweet has more than 215,000 likes, representing almost half of the 500,000 followers of the Reverend Raphael Warnock Twitter account.

How can a reverend support abortion? How can a preacher of the gospel, whose sacred text is the Bible, support the killing of the unborn in the womb? And how can he do it without qualification, thereby including the right to kill the baby through the ninth month of pregnancy? What an absolute travesty.

But Warnock is not alone in his misguided zeal.

A pro-life colleague told me about an abortionist in our home city who tithed on her earnings (meaning, donated 10% of her abortion profits to her church). She believed she was doing God’s work.

This colleague also sent me pictures of Dr. George Tiller (the late-term abortionist who was murdered by a misguided pro-life zealot) baptizing the corpses of babies he had just aborted. He did this, I was told, to bring closure for the grieving parents.

Another colleague of mine met with a group of inner-city pastors some years ago, inviting them to join with him for a major pro-life prayer rally. One of the pastors said to him, “We just took up a collection in my church to help a young lady get an abortion.”

How can this be?

It’s one thing to “shout your abortion” as a God-mocker or an atheist or agnostic.

It’s another thing to claim to be a follower of Jesus and a lover of the Scriptures and to support abortion.

That’s why Warnock’s pro-choice tweet drew such scorn from pro-life leaders.
