BLOOMINGTON – Last weekend, Pastor Mark Burns, President & CEO of The NOW Television Network and pastor of The Harvest Praise & Worship Center led off the rally with 3000 supporters by saying, "Hellooo Illinois! Are you ready to elect the next president of these United States of America?
"Listen Illinois, I'm gonna pray because we're about to elect a man who believes in the name of Jesus Christ. And he's gonna make sure we are protected and our rights as Christians are protected that have been taken away by the Obama administration!"
In an effort to pull in conservative Black voters, Pastor Burns went on to pray for Trump saying "he will bring us together, not divide us."
During his eight minute speech Burns condemned dividing based on race and color. He said there is only 'green people.'
"The only color that really matters is the color of money in your pocket," Burns said.
