Senator Bernie Sanders spoke from the Bible at leading evangelical college, Liberty University, seeking ‘common ground’ with the students.
Speaking to an evangelical audience, he sought to show that morality stretches beyond abortion and gay-rights.
Sanders, who is Jewish, acknowledged from the outset of his speech that the he and the audience have views “on a number of important issues that are very, very different,” especially on abortion and same-sex marriage.
He said “it is easy to go out and talk to people who agree with you… it is harder but not less important for us to try and communicate with those who do not agree with us on every issue.”
