At a Donald Trump rally in North Carolina this morning, his opening act, pastor and televangelist Mark Burns, told the crowd that Bernie Sanders “doesn’t believe in God,” adding, “Bernie gotta get saved. He gotta meet Jesus… He gotta have a ‘coming to Jesus’ meeting.”
Bernie Sanders, of course, is Jewish. He has never said he’s an atheist.
You can see the comments at the 5:28 mark in the video below:
Besides the idiocy of slamming another candidate on the basis of his religion, it doesn’t even make any sense.
As the saying goes, Jesus was a Jewish socialist. He reached out to the minorities of his time. He helped the poor and said, “it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”
None of the candidates need to find Jesus. But if anyone needs to, Trump has a much longer way to go.
