A group of black pastors slammed Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.) on Friday for praising the so-called "brilliance" of the Black Lives Matter founders, the Christian Post reported.
Praising the co-founders' "brilliance in conceiving [BLM]," Harris told Rye that one day people would see BLM as "an inflection point in the ongoing fight for justice ... and to reform the criminal justice system."
"I actually believe as a former prosecutor that Black Lives Matter has been the most significant agent for change within the criminal justice system," Harris said, "because it has been a counterforce to the force within the system that is so grounded in status quo and in its own traditions, many of which have been harmful and have been discriminatory in the way that they have been enforced."
The Conservative Clergy of Color, a group of black pastors, took serious issue with Harris' praise for the Black Lives Matter movement and its founders.
Senator and a candidate for vice president give such high praise to a group that is trying to destroy our country," Shines told the Post.
