Democratic Senate candidate Raphael Warnock said in a 2011 sermon that Americans cannot serve God while also serving in the U.S. military.

The newly unearthed comments threaten to complicate Warnock’s candidacy in a tight Georgia Senate race: Georgia is home to the fifth largest active duty military population in the country, according to a 2018 Department of Defense report.

“America, nobody can serve God and the military,” Warnock said in the sermon delivered at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, where he serves as senior pastor. “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!” he added.

Video of the remarks surfaced as Warnock is facing criticism for other controversial statements, including his claim that “America needs to repent for its worship of whiteness.” He has also come under scrutiny for his support for his religious mentor James Hal Cone, who said that white Christians practice the “theology of the Antichrist” and described white people as “satanic.”

Warnock’s campaign did not respond to request for comment.

Military veterans took exception to Warnock’s remarks. Former U.S. Army National Guard chief chaplain Kenneth E. Brandt, who retired in April after 30 years of service, said he disagrees with the notion that Americans cannot serve both God and the military.

“If he’s saying you cannot be in the military and be a Christian, I would take issue with that,” Brandt, who ran a short-lived campaign for the U.S. House of Representatives as a Republican in 2018, told the Washington Free Beacon.

“I’ve met some great people in the military, young men and women in the country who have raised their right hand and took an oath to defend this country against all enemies foreign and domestic,” Brandt said. “They have a deep belief, whether it’s in God or a higher power, whatever you want to call it.”

Brandt noted that Georgia is home to a massive military community that includes Fort Benning, one of the largest U.S. military installments in the world, and Fort Gordon, which houses the U.S. Army Cyber and Signal schools.

“It just makes no sense to me how you can say that, especially if you’re running in Georgia,” he said.

Warnock is headed into a runoff election against incumbent senator Kelly Loeffler (R., Ga.) on January 5. National political organizations are expected to pour record-breaking funds and resources into the highly contested race, which is one of two runoff elections in Georgia that will determine party control of the U.S. Senate next year.

Warnock: Americans Must ‘Repent’ for Backing Trump and ‘Worship of Whiteness’

‘If it is true that a man who has dominated the news and poisoned the discussion for months needs to repent, then it is doubly true that a nation that can produce such a man and make his vitriol go viral needs to repent’

Georgia Democrat Raphael Warnock argued in late 2016 that Americans needed to “repent” both for supporting Donald Trump and for the country’s “worship of whiteness.”

The comments came in an address at Atlanta’s Candler School of Theology shortly before Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.

“If it is true that a man who has dominated the news and poisoned the discussion for months needs to repent, then it is doubly true that a nation that can produce such a man and make his vitriol go viral needs to repent,” Warnock said to raucous applause. “No matter what happens next month, more than a third of the nation that would go along with this, is reason to be afraid. America needs to repent for its worship of whiteness, on full display this season.”

A full version of Warnock’s remarks can be found here. The Warnock campaign did not respond to a request for comment. While Trump’s support among white men eroded in the 2020 presidential race, he gained ground with African-Americans and Hispanics.

The senior pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church, Warnock is now locked in a tight Senate race against Republican incumbent Kelly Loeffler. He is already under fire for a bevy of his previous statements, from calling Israel an “oppressive regime” to his defense of the anti-Semitic Rev. Jeremiah Wright. He is also come under scrutiny for praising his religious mentor, Dr. James Cone, who argued that white Christians practice the “theology of the Antichrist” and described whites as “satanic.”

In the same sermon, Warnock also argued for raising the minimum wage, telling the audience that refusing to do so while demanding Americans work is dehumanizing. “Whenever we refuse to raise the minimum wage while demanding that people ought to work, we are saying, ‘I can do with them whatever I want,'” he said.

Warnock is headed into a runoff election against Loeffler on Jan. 5. National political organizations are expected to pour record-breaking funds and resources into the highly contested race, which is one of two runoff elections in Georgia that will determine party control of the U.S. Senate next year.
