Bernie Sanders at Liberty University

The very thought of Democratic Socialist candidate Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) speaking at a compulsory convocation at Liberty University, founded by the late Rev. Jerry Falwell who also founded the Moral Majority, seemed far-fetched until it happened. What happened is an example to follow: a genuine, face-to-face, civil discussion about America, the meaning of morality, and what the Bible has to say about justice in our time.

C-Span’s coverage of the complete 1 hr. 5 min. convocation, including Christian evangelical praise music, and prayer before and after Sanders’ presentation, is all the more remarkable.

  1. I’m glad Barbara mentioned the Evangelical who is standing with Bernie after his address at Liberty University. Daily Kos had some fairly extended excerpts from the man’s statement, and they were very inspiring.


  2. Bernie Sanders: Ban Private Prisons, Profit By Locking Up African Americans!

    “We cannot fix our criminal justice system if corporations are allowed to profit from mass incarceration,” Sanders said. “Keeping human beings in jail for long periods of time must no longer be an acceptable business model in America. We have got to end the private prison racket in America. Our focus should be on treating people with dignity and ensuring they have the resources they need to get back on their feet when they get out.”

  4. Evangelical Christian Pastor Confesses: “I’m Voting For Bernie Sanders”

    Bernie Sanders message of economic and racial justice is resonating with the Evangelical Christian community. After listening to Bernie Sanders speak at Liberty University, one former student, and pastor, is now a supporter of Bernie Sanders for president. He explains how an Evangelical Christian can be both theologically conservative and politically liberal based on Bible teachings.

    “I wouldn’t be much of a Christian if I didn’t stand on the side of gospel for the poor, because, the last time I checked, that’s where my master Jesus stood, and I’ll stand with Him. And, for now, that means I stand with Bernie Sanders.”
