Democrats Heckle Preacher During Opening Prayer

Monday night in Philadelphia the Democrats opened their proceedings with a word of prayer -- from a Christian minister. Now that in and of itself was a miracle -- right up there with the water getting turned into wine.

But when the preacher offered a blessing upon Hillary Clinton, all you-know-what broke loose.

“We have an opportunity, oh God, to give undeniable evidence to our commitment to justice and equality by nominating Hillary Rodham Clinton as our candidate for the highest office in the land, Rev. Cynthia Hale prayed.

They literally heckled the poor lady – booing and jeering right in the middle of her petition to the Almighty. At some point the jeers turned into chants for Bernie Sanders, “Bernie, Bernie…”

To be clear -- they were not chanting the name of Jesus Christ the Savior -- they were chanting the name of Bernie Sanders the socialist.
