Senator Raphael Warnock, a reverend, has denounced GOP criticism, calling it the "opposite of the Christian faith," 'The Hill' reports.

Apparently, the Speaker finds trans people abhorrent, and I think he ought to think about that, Sen.

Warnock, via interview with CNN's Dana Bash.

This is just one more instance of folks who do not know how to lead us trying to divide us, Sen.

Warnock, via interview with CNN's Dana Bash.

This is the opposite of the Christian faith.

Jesus centered the marginalized.

He centered the poor, Sen.

Warnock, via interview with CNN's Dana Bash.

And in a moment like this, we need voices, particularly voices of faith, who would use our faith not as a weapon to beat other people down but as a bridge to bring all of us together, Sen.

Sadly, it’s unsurprising politicians are seeking to divide and weaken our country with cruel, hateful, and dishonest rhetoric.

President Biden will never abuse his faith for political purposes or for profit, White House spokesperson Andrew Bates, via statement
