his message for the poor and downtrodden is certainly Christlike.

5. One does not have to be particularly religious to appreciate the dangers of Idolatry.

 

This is something that atheists and religious folks "of good faith" (couldn't resist!...lol) can agree on.

The Worship of False Gods like Money and Weapons can be dangerous, indeed.

7. That doesn't matter..

He was invited to an international forum where dignitaries from many nations (who were also invited) all over the world will be speaking about the very subjects that Sanders has been fighting his whole life for. Because of that he should go, him being religious has nothing to do about it. He was invited because of the stances he takes on certain social issues.

Nope. He's not particularly religious, in the church going sense.

But he does admire the Pope for his moral stances on economic and social justice.

15. The various comments about Jews in your transparency page makes this OP creepy stuff

 

Clinton Camp needs to clean house.

"My observation is that many of the Sanders supporters are out of control. In many ways not dissimilar from Trump supporters in the sense they feel the system has failed them. Many of Sander's supporters are nasty to anyone supporting Hilary. I live in the south and I think many of of the Sanders supporters miss out on how the republican machine will take him out.

Many try to equate Obama and Sander's elect ability. Sorry Obama was young and charismatic. Sander's is an old crusty "jew'. If most of the Sanders supporters don't understand how he would play out there then I think you are missing America's underlying feelings about northeasterners and how they view "jews".
Hilary is still from Chicago."

20. Apparently not. Your language expresses massive prejudice toward Jews and that's vile shit.

 

So when you make yet another OP about the Jewish candidate's religion, it's creepy. You express bigotry, antisemitism is not in any way more acceptable than racism. I find your presence on DU to be an indictment of your DU cohort that refuses to stand up to the horrible stuff you keep typing. Snark and continued assholery are not going to save you.

43. I don't understand the first point...

I'm a Southerner, too, and neither Bernie nor Hillary has much of a snowball's chance in Hell in the general election down here. So what if the Republicans start a whisper campaign about Bernie being Jewish. They'll do the same about Hillary being a female who stayed with a cheating husband because of what he could do for her.

In fact, this is the reason so many people have commented about how unimportant Hillary's Southern sweep was: it won't do her or the Democrats any good in the general.

19. Are you saying it is okay for a religious Jew to visit the Vatican, but not a non-religious one?

Can you explain the logic behind that?

BTW, the Vatican is very concerned with helping the poor, regardless of faith (or lack thereof). You don't have to be religious (or Christian) to believe in the correctness of the Church's teachings about the poor.

24. I have never known an Jewish person

 

and i need your help. i have no idea how America looks at northeasterners since I grew up in yonkers which had a significant Jewish population around Greystone. I went to Emerson JHS which is in the middle of Greystone and and i never encountered a singe Jewish guy.

I now live in GA and I have lived In Denver, SF and many cities in America and I have never ever heard one single disparaging remark about New Yorkers and Jewish people with the exception of ted Cruz.

I'm sure your life experiences are the same as mine.

When Ted Cruz says "New York value" it is a broadside attack on "jews" because as you know the Jewish culture is the predominant culture of New York city.

Actually, growing up there, you probably did. Surprisingly, they look just like regular people.

The Vatican is also political. He's trying to connect with Catholics. That isn't weird or strange or unusual. He's in an election where a lot of Catholics will be voting.
