Sexual abuse survivor and co-founder of Saddleback Church in California, Kay Warren, urged white Christians to drop their support for Republican Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh if sexual assault allegations against him are proven to be true.
Warren’s call comes as a recent Marist poll showed that just under 50 percent of white evangelical Christians would still support Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court even if Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation that the now 53-year-old judge sexually assaulted her in high school turns out to be true.
Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied Ford’s allegations, as well as the allegations of at least three other accusers. An FBI investigation into Ford’s allegations is currently underway and is expected to end this week.
“As a white Christian woman and a survivor of sexual abuse, I beg my white Christian brothers & sisters to drop their support for Kavanaugh if the allegations against him are proven true,” Warren said in a tweet Monday night, citing a report on the poll.
After fielding some backlash over the tweet, Warren drove home her point in a second tweet.
“What many of you are missing in your emotional responses to my tweet is that the article says 48% of white evangelicals would support him EVEN IF the allegations are proven true. THAT is my point,” she noted.
Warren is among the 36 percent of white evangelicals according to the poll who do not think Kavanaugh should be confirmed to the Supreme Court if the allegations against him are proven to be true. About 16 percent of white evangelicals who were polled did not have an answer for how Kavanaugh’s nomination should be treated.
