Socialist Sanders takes campaign to Christian school – USA TODAY: “Sanders, a Vermont independent running for the Democratic presidential nomination, may test the limits of his appeal Monday when he speaks at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va., founded by the late Rev. Jerry Falwell.
“I’m still looking hard for something he and I agree on,” school president and Falwell’s son, Jerry Falwell Jr., said with a laugh during a recent interview. “I’m pretty conservative but I think some of the things he said about the middle class being destroyed in this country, I think that is a problem. He and I may not agree on how to fix that, but I’m open to hearing what he’s got to say.”
Imagine what greeting a hard-right candidate would get from almost any American university today–if he or she were even allowed an audience.
