"Unto the least of these"  
An evangelical Christian listened to Bernie Sanders and liked what he heard.

One sentence in that leaped out at me: "There is an Honor Code at Liberty University, and while it’s not always enforced, if you support a candidate who is pro-choice or pro-gay marriage, you can be punished by the University, up to and including expulsion from the school." Consider what the words honor and liberty mean in that sentence.

Well good for you, Jim! Go out and spread the word, now that you are free from the "Honor code" of Liberty University.

It's a constant astonishment to me that supposedly devout Christians could even think about supporting the Republican party. Jesus (as described and quoted in the gospels) was not terribly interested in sexual/reproductive issues and had not a word to say about gay marriage. However, he had quite a lot to say about helping the poor. And no sympathy at all for rich people.

I wonder how Bernie would like being identified with John the Baptist? *giggle* Yeah, I can see it.
