On Monday, presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders spoke to a self-professed conservative Christian group. We live in a time of perpetual war, and Sanders—who sometimes touts his 2002 vote against authorizing the invasion of Iraq—apparently couldn’t bring himself to raise the subject of war with people who profess to be followers of the Prince of Peace.
In his speech at Liberty University, founded by Jerry Falwell, the Democrat said that he and his audience, despite their differences, should both work on economic inequality. (See a video of that speech here and the transcript here.) And it was certainly important for someone to talk to those at Liberty University about the idolatry of money.
