Jewish Democratic candidate Sanders invited to Vatican by Pope

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said Friday that he has been invited to the Vatican for a meeting on social, environmental and economic issues.

Sanders, who is Jewish, said he was “very moved by the invitation” and that he’s a “very, very big fan of the pope,” despite differences on some issues. The Vermont senator told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that he particularly respects the pope’s statements bemoaning “the idolatry of money” in society.
