Ds. Dr. Calvin Butts III, senior pastor of the church that hosted Cuban dictator Fidel Castro in 1995 and also employed Rev. Raphael Warnock, has donated thousands of dollars to the reverend’s Senate campaign.

Op daardie stadium, Butts praised Castro asone of the great leaders of the world.

According to the latest Federal Election Commission (FEC) liassering, Butts has offered $ 1,500 in donations since Nov. 27, totaal $ 3,250 for the election cycle.

Democrat Warnock is facing off against Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler in one of two highly contentious Afloop van die Senaat van Georgia op Jan.. 5 that will determine the control of the Senate.

'N Vertaling van Castro se toespraak het aan die lig gebring dat hy hom afvra waarom hy by die kerk verwelkom is, en let op dat hy van sy sakepad na militêre vermoeidheid verander het toe hy vir die geleentheid voorberei het. Hy het ook die blokkade beskryf as “gek” en “verouderd.” Wat blyk dat dit addisionele beeldmateriaal op YouTube is vir die gehoor wat Castro opbeur.
