Conservatives and military veterans torched Georgia Senate Democrat candidate Raphael Warnock’s anti-military comments.
Breitbart News reported on Tuesday that Warnock said during a 2011 sermon that Americans could not serve God and the military at the same time.
“America, nobody, can serve God and the military,” Warnock said in a 2011 sermon at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia. “You can’t serve God and money. You cannot serve God and Mammon at the same time.”
The Georgia Democrat added, “America choose ye this day who you will serve. Choose ye this day!”
Warnock’s controversial remarks engendered strong backlash from conservatives and military veterans.
Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) said on Wednesday, “Raphael Warnock’s radical, anti-American views are disqualifying. He should withdraw from the #GASen.”
