Bernie the Christian basher

In his hectoring of OMB nominee Russell Vought, Sen. Bernie Sanders showed himself to be the enemy of all religion. He attacked Vought for his religious beliefs as expressed on a blog called the Resurgent. Vought when questioned about something he wrote on his blog simply restated his Christian belief: that salvation comes through Christ alone.

But Sanders, who is not a Christian nor a theologian, and apparently not even a good American concluded that this Christian belief stated by Christ himself made Vought unfit for public office. “I would simply say, Mr. Chairman, that this nominee is really not someone who is what this country is supposed to be about.”
From The Catholic Thing,

Sanders has attacked the basics of the faith; I guess he thinks it's like bringing down a florist or baker. But Jesus didn't say "I'm one of the ways. . ."
