  • Bio: Never one to shy away from hot-button topics, the Rev. Raphael Warnock continued that tradition on Martin Luther King Jr. Day this year when he called out Newt Gingrich for race-baiting. Warnock also joined forces with other ministers to demand that Village Media end its predatory sex ads. And as soon as he was finished working on the Troy Davis death-penalty case, he found himself in the midst of the Trayvon Martin case. In honor of the slain teen, Warnock wore a hoodie while preaching to more than 2,500 congregants at an 11 a.m. service in March. Like his Facebook page.
