Aside from the few typos, which were probably due to your passion while writing the letter, your assessment and words were brilliant and on the mark! Amen and Amen!! I pray that although the width of your platform is impressive, an even wider audience is in your future! Countless blessings to you!

This is a very good letter. Insightful, thought-provoking, logical. Unabashedly faithful. It is only marred by a few typos: The sentence, "conservative, an so, in fundamental disagreement with much of your ideology." (should be: and so) And the sentence, "After asking him if he felt he was statement was “Islamophobic,” which, of course," (should be: if he felt his statement was -) Great points! I really have no doubt that Sanders believes that any expression of "faith" should be relegated to the "private sphere" only. I think he would be equally uncomfortable with any "religious sentiment" from any office holder. In his desire to offend none, he believes he is being "inclusive". I've noticed that more and more people are openly advocating for this position. Little do they seem to realize that this desire to scrub out any religious/supernatural expression, despite the intention not to provoke division, is only leading to an increasingly sterile state in which all such mention would be crushed by the heavy hand of the State. Surely such a suppressed society the Founders had no desire to see, nor would such a state reflect the character of American people on the whole. Instead of arguing for the exclusion of such expression, it would be more profitable for Sanders to appeal to the highest ideals Americans hold dear.
