Toxic Trump Rally Opens With Call For Bernie Sanders To Convert To Christianity

Toxic Trump Rally Opens With Call For Bernie Sanders To Convert To Christianity March 14, 2016

Toxic Christian privilege; obnoxious antisemitism: another day with Donald Trump.

In an obnoxious display of anti-semitism the opening speaker at a Trump rally calls on Bernie Sanders to convert to Christianity.

Opening a Donald Trump rally in North Carolina this morning, pastor and televangelist Mark Burns warmed up the rowdy Trump crowd by urging Sen. Bernie Sanders to become a Christian.

Displaying an obnoxious insensitivity typical of Trump supporters, the South Carolina televangelist told audience members at Lenoir-Rhyne University as they waited on a Q&A session with Trump and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie that Sanders was an atheist and needed to convert to Christianity.

At the rally, Pastor Burns declared:

Bernie Sanders, who doesn’t believe in God, how in the world (are) we going to let Bernie — I mean, really?

Bernie’s got to get saved, Bernie’s got to meet Jesus. He’s got to have a coming to Jesus meeting.

As one might expect, the Trump crowd cheered.
