Sen. Bernie Sanders Won't Say if He Believes In God (Video)


Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Oct. 21 to discuss his presidential campaign, but would not reveal his religious or non-religious beliefs (video below).

Kimmel brought up a common argument that Sanders is not electable (even though he is surging in some polls), and asked him: "Do you believe in God and do you think that’s important to the people of the United States?” notes Joe My God.

Sanders replied:

I am who I am, and what I believe in and what my spirituality is about is that we’re all in this together.

I think it is not a good thing to believe as human beings we can turn our backs on the suffering of other people. That we should not be living ...

And this is not Judaism, this is what Pope Francis is talking about, that we cannot worship just billionaires and the making of more and more money. Life is more than that.

In a lighter moment, Kimmel asked Sanders what he thought about Larry David's impression of him on "Saturday Night Live," reports Mashable (video below).

Sanders imitated David in his reply: "Well, I thought it was pretty, pretty, pretty good!"
