Sanders could be the “first Jewish president — but as one of the few modern presidents to present himself as not religious.”
Most news outlets highlight Sanders’ commitment to social equality, social justice, and helping minorities and the poor. However, Sanders’ position on rape appears to fly in the face of both his political and religious beliefs.
Mother Jones uncovered a 1972 essay that Sanders wrote for the Vermont Freeman, which “satirized” rape. Why more people are not upset by this, or trivialize this is quite troubling.
