As Democrats are making a push for voting rights legislation in Congress, more faith leaders want Americans to approach it as a moral – even spiritual – issue, including pastor and Democrat, Sen. Raphael Warnock of Georgia.

Warnock explains why he thinks ending the legislative filibuster in the Senate may be a necessary step, a move that President Joe Biden also endorsed while speaking in Warnock’s home state on Tuesday.

And Warnock describes his spiritual motivation for this voting rights push. He says democracy is the “political enactment of a spiritual idea.”
