Into the lion's den: Bernie Sanders spoke at Liberty University

For openers, he took on abortion and gay marriage head on.

"I understand that the issues of abortion and gay marriage are issues that you feel very strongly about. We disagree on those issues. I get that. Let me respectfully suggest there are other issues out there that are of enormous consequence to our country and in fact to the entire world that maybe, just maybe, we do not disagree on."

Among the other issues he addressed was the morality of income inequality.

"There is no justice when the top one-tenth of one percent own almost as much wealth as the bottom 90 percent. There is no justice when all over this country people are working longer hours for lower wages, while 58 percent of all new income goes to the top one percent."

Foregoing snippets are from the Ring of Fire Radio report where you can find a link to a video of the full speech.
