A video surfaced this week of Georgia Democrat Senate candidate Raphael Warnock saying during an April 2011 sermon that Americans could not serve their country in “the military” while also serving God.
“America, nobody can serve God and the military,” Warnock said. “You can’t serve God and money. You cannot serve God and mammon at the same time. America, choose ye this day who you will serve. Choose ye this day.”
Warnock’s unearthed controversial remarks come as he is running for U.S. Senate in a state that has 14 military installations and where nearly 80% of the state’s residents identify themselves as Christian.
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) posted the video on Twitter, writing that he was “not shocked” by Warnock’s extreme comments.
Rubio added, “These and even crazier things is what the radicals who control the Democratic party’s activist and small dollar donor base believe.”
