    A North Carolina pastor warmed up the crowd at a Donald Trump rally by urging Sen. Bernie Sanders to become a Christian.

    Televangelist Mark Burns spoke to Trump supporters at a campaign event in Hickory ahead of Tuesday’s North Carolina primary election, reported the Friendly Atheist blog.

    “Bernie Sanders, who doesn’t believe in God, how in the world (are) we going to let Bernie — I mean, really?” Burns said, as the crowd applauded. “Bernie’s got to get saved, Bernie’s got to meet Jesus. He’s got to have a coming to Jesus meeting.”

    Sanders describes himself as a secular Jew who is not “particularly religious,” and his wife was raised Roman Catholic.

    After mischaracterizing the senator’s religious views, Burns slammed his political identification with democratic socialism.

    “We’re a democratic country, we believe in small business and we believe in small government and we believe in big states and local rights,” Burns said.

    Burns, who is black, encouraged the audience to cheer louder and reminded them to watch his upcoming appearance on CNN, where he planned to promote Trump’s campaign, and tweaked the Black Lives Matter movement by telling the cheering crowd that “all lives matter.”

    You can't help who supports you. Take, for example, this KKK klukker who supports Hillary:

    The KKK leader who says he backs Hillary Clinton
    Will Quigg once tweeted his support for Donald Trump but now says he is behind Democrat candidate's "hidden agenda" - although hate-group watchers are skeptical

    “We want Hillary Clinton to win,” Mr Quigg told The Telegraph. “She is telling everybody one thing, but she has a hidden agenda. She’s telling everybody what they want to hear so she can get elected, because she’s Bill Clinton’s wife, she’s close to the Bushes. [But] once she’s in the presidency, she’s going to come out and her true colours are going to show.
    It's not as if this pastor is Trump's personal man o' god, is he? You know, a thug who damns America and relishes that we got attacked on 9/11.

    Who knew the Editors should have saved this line for 2016:

    "if there really was a god here,
    he'd have raised a hand by now..."

    Donald Trump chose Mark Burns to speak at his rally.

    I don't expect you to understand the difference between hand-picking an MC to bring you out on stage, and a supporter who chooses you through an unfounded conspiracy theory. They are definitely markedly different scenarios.
