POPE FRANCIS AND BERNIE SANDERS CONFUSE PRESS OVER CONCEPT OF GOOD MANNERS

"If anyone thinks that greeting someone is getting involved in politics, I recommend that he look for a psychiatrist," Pope Francis added.

For his part Mr Sanders said it was an "honour" to meet him. "I think he is one of the extraordinary figures not only in the world today but in modern world history," he told Associated Press news agency"

Pope Francis closed out his comments with."When I came down, I greeted him, I shook his hand and nothing more. This is called good manners and it is not getting involved in politics."

I have said this before, Pope Francis is a miracle.  It amazes me how atheists see him as a breath of fresh air.  Jews and Muslims, along with many other religions all over the world look to him for moral leadership.  It says a lot when the most well known Jew in the U.S. says Pope Francis is "one of the extraordinary figures not only in the world today but in modern world history,"

All of this proves we can come together if we try.  We need to  focus on those trying to bring a positive message of hope instead of doom.

I hope Bernie can pull a miracle on Tuesday in New York.  The numbers do not look good, but we shall see.
