Martin Luther King Jr.'s old church, holds a sign that quotes the former civil rights icon: "Of all forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane," at a Moral Monday Georgia protest at the Georgia Capitol, March 18, 2014, Atlanta, Ga. |

“When I profiled @ReverendWarnock, he was game to talk policy, but he lit up when I asked about the Bible, Jesus's vision of justice, and what it means to lead prophetically. Georgia just elected a progressive, Black, vocal Christian to the U.S. Senate,” Green said on Twitter.
