Incredibly insulting piece: Bernie Sanders: a Jew With a Christian Politic

Here is a wonderful piece of work Bernie Sanders: a Jew With a Christian Politic

Please explain to me why describing a Jew as being Christian is supposed to be a positive?

Is it not arrogant to think that any people, but particularlly Jews, require Christian approval for our politics?

Or to tacitly limit progressive as "a Christian politic: one that cares for the poor and outcast."

One must ask, what is the author and those who proudly repost this, thinks is a Jewish politic?  

Would one see such comparison about another people, without charges of cultural theft, microagression, or priviledge.

Why does a discussion of politics in America require the injection of religion, and why one religion rather than another.

Never forget, there are those of us who love this country and work for its good despite any of its Christian heritage.

All Extremists are Cousins

I find this article in the Washington Post,
Ga. parents, offended by the ‘Far East religion’ of yoga, get ‘Namaste’ banned from school, amusing.

Given that we recent banning of a Yoga class banned over 'cultural appropriation' in Canada, more proof that all extremists are cousins.
