But as an adult, Sanders drifted away from Jewish customs. And as his bid for the White House gains momentum, he has the chance to make history. Not just as the first Jewish president — but as one of the few modern presidents to present himself as not religious.
“I am not actively involved with organized religion,” Sanders said in a recent interview.
Sanders said he believes in God, though not necessarily in a traditional manner.
“I think everyone believes in God in their own ways,” he said. “To me, it means that all of us are connected, all of life is connected, and that we are all tied together.”
Actually science has proven that we are all connected by the planet on which we live, the materials that compose our bodies, and the energy we share to survive, so there is really NO reason to introduce gods into the equation.
Actually IF Sanders was to subscribe to any religious belief or philosophy it would seem that Taoism would be a far better fit than Judaism, or any of the other western religions.
Having said that it really does sound as if Bernie is given the most political cautious answer he can give while covering for the fact that he is in reality an Atheist.
Just my opinion, but then I also think that there are a large number of Atheists in politics, entertainment, and the media who are still too afraid to accept that label publicly.
