Faith in Public Life Action Endorses Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff for the United States Senate
Faith in Public Life Action, a national network of faith leaders working with over 2,000 clergy and lay leaders in Georgia, endorses Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff for the United States Senate. Faith in Public Life Action Fund makes this endorsement of U.S. Senate candidates for the first time in the organization’s history with enthusiasm and conviction. Georgia needs new senators, and the nation needs Georgia’s leadership.
The moral consequences of the runoff elections are vast. With Rev. Warnock and Mr. Ossoff in the Senate, our government will be poised to enact policies that respect human dignity, advance justice for all and reflect love of neighbor. As a faith-based network, Faith in Public Life Action deeply admires Rev. Warnock’s extensive and laudable work to advance justice, equality and democracy in Georgia. Rev. Warnock and Mr. Ossoff are both campaigning on clear moral messages and taking policy stands that uphold our values and help our communities thrive.
Our nation and the people of Georgia need and deserve leaders who strive to represent everyone. Rev. Warnock and Mr. Ossoff have demonstrated that they will serve all people in Georgia as U.S. Senators and public leaders.
From COVID-19 relief to criminal justice reform, from equal rights for all to affordable and accessible healthcare, and an immigration system that upholds human dignity, the road to policies that improve Americans’ lives and address America’s injustices runs through the Senate. Senators Perdue and Loeffler are a force for gridlock and corruption at a time of crisis. Their self-enrichment during the pandemic, their lockstep devotion to the Trump administration’s immoral agenda, and their attacks on democracy render them morally unfit for office. They further dishonor themselves by resorting to divisive bigotry in their campaigns, including dishonest attacks on Rev. Warnock’s theology despite his unifying work with diverse communities of faith, as well as a blatantly anti-semitic ad against Mr. Ossoff. A majority of Georgians rejected the politics of white nationalism in November, and we pray they will do so again in January.
The people of Georgia face a clear moral choice. And as goes Georgia, so goes the nation. We pray that Georgia voters of faith cast their ballots for Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff.
