Bernie Sanders speaks at Liberty University

Extract from The Guardian:

On Monday (September 14 2015), Bernie Sanders sought to reach across the political chasm that divides liberal America from evangelical conservatives. At Liberty University in southern Virginia, the Vermont senator spoke to Christian students, urging them to find common ground with him on issues of poverty and social injustice.

Quoting from the Bible in front of a crowd of 12,000, the closest challenger to Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination claimed soaring income inequality was a moral issue that should transcend traditional political divides.

“When we talk about morality and when we talk about justice, we have to understand that there is no justice when so few have so much and so many have so little,” he said. “I want you to go into your hearts: how can we talk about justice when we turn our backs on the children of our country?”

Here is the full speech made by Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders at Liberty University in Virginia on September 14, 2015. (Liberty University), published in The Washington Post
