Black Democrat Strategist Said He Received Pushback for Urging Party to Welcome Biblical Values

A black Democrat Christian strategist says that the party’s donor class’ push for secular progressivism is “out of tune” with the views of many black Christians in the Democratic Party, and recounted the pushback he personally received when he urged the party to be more welcoming to biblical values. Justin Giboney, an Atlanta-based lawyer and a former Obama delegate to the Democratic National Convention, spoke out against the direction that his party has taken as it relates to the views of black Christians who call for social justice while adhering to the moral truths of their Protestant biblical beliefs.
