Raphael Warnock, the Democrat running in Georgia’s Senate runoff election — who claims to be a Christian minister — has pushed the lie that Jesus of Nazareth is a “Palestinian,” instead of a Jew.
Warnock claims to be the “senior pastor” at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, the same church where MLK Jr. and Sr. served as co-pastors. But his radical ideas could not be more un-Christian.
In a video of one of his sermons, Warnock pushed lies about Jesus.
In the video Warnock claimed to quote the red Pope’s words on Marxists, and then went on to refer to Jesus as “that poor Palestinian prophet.”
“And, I love this Pope. He said, ‘Well, I’m not a Marxist, but I know a few Marxists and they’re pretty good people,” Warnock said. “So hard to discover, and to hear an authentic vision and voice, of authentic spirituality that gives voice to the least of these and when it shows up people describe it as some strange ideology rather than the vision of that poor Palestinian prophet who said that the spirit of the Lord is on me because God has anointed me to preach good news to the poor…”

That is not the only time he called Jesus a Palestinian.
In another one Warnock decried elected officials who enacted the ‘Stand Your Ground’ self-protection law and called Jesus “that Palestinian peasant.”
“No, it’s not a stand your ground law,” Warnock said, “it’s a shoot first law. Shoot first, ask questions later…[But] perfect love casts out fear! And how is it that we have elected officials who say that they are Christian, that they go and they listen to somebody preach every Sunday morning—I wonder, what are they preaching?—Do they know the Christ? Do they know that Palestinian peasant who said, ‘He who lives by the sword will die by the sword?”
This claim that Jesus is a Palestinian is an outright lie. Indeed, there is no such thing as a “Palestinian.” There never has been any such ethnicity or nation as Palestine.
But here we have Warnock attempting to erase Jesus’ Jewishness to push modern political leftism. Liberals cannot be both Christians and Democrats. Their politics always takes precedence.
