WATCH: Lecrae Says Charlie Kirk’s Call to Ban Him from Performing at Churches is ‘Sad, Racist Rhetoric’

Hip-hop artist and Christian speaker Lecrae recently responded to Charlie Kirk, founder of the conservative student group Turning Point USA, who said the rapper “should never be allowed” to perform in Christian churches because he campaigned for Raphael Warnock, a pro-choice Democrat.

“I don’t think people see the amount of racist rhetoric that comes out they mouth when they try to cancel,” the Reach Records founder said on the Higher Learning Podcast with Van Lathan and Rachel Lindsay.

Referring to Kirk, he continued, “You represent one of the largest majority white institutions and organizations out there and you’re saying, ‘Don’t invite this black man into another church again?’ All the white supremacy wrapped up in that is crazy that they don’t even see it. That’s wild to me.”

Lecrae was a featured performer at a December 2020 event in Atlanta called “Get Out the Early Vote Rally & Concert,” which was hosted by Democrats Warnock and Jon Ossoff before Georgia’s runoff elections. While there, the artist stressed the importance of one’s freedom to vote.

During an appearance at Pastor Jack Hibbs’ Calvary Chapel Chino the week of the inauguration of President Joe Biden, Kirk, author of The MAGA Doctrine, said, “In my personal opinion, [Lecrae] should never be allowed to perform at another church after advocating for Raphael Warnock.”
