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.
