At Bernie Sandersí Kickoff Rally, Campaign Co-Chair Gives Shout-Out to Atheists
By Hemant Mehta, March 3, 2019

During the Brooklyn kickoff for Bernie SandersĎ 2020 presidential campaign, his national co-chair, Nina Turner, gave a shout-out to atheists (among others) as she told the crowd who Sanders was representing in his run.

Spoiler: Itís literally everyone.

Ö and so I say, Brooklyn, that you should be proud that the son of this city has been standing on the front lines for a very long time. Standing up for working people in this country. Black, white, brown, red, yellow, and the swirl in between. Gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer. Jew, gentile, Christian, Buddhist, atheist. Standing up for the people! Thatís the measure of a man.


Itís just rhetoric, but itís good to be included in that mix. The next step is for the candidates to make a more direct case for church/state separation and why this administrationís appeals to a specific kind of conservative Christian need to end.
