Reader comment on: Sanders on Usury

In my opinion it wasn't that he (Sanders) was using religious doctrine to "dictate national policy" he was merely pointing out how widespread and prevalent ethical proscriptions in civilized society against the practice are. It was as if to say: "See, even all three major religions agree on this point." This was merely an argument used to bolster his case, but his case does not rest on this argument. Therefore, his case is not based on religious doctrine whereas many of the anti-abortion/gay rights advocates do ultimately derive authority for their opinions from scriptural sources and can, in my opinion, be more aptly accused of attempting to "dictate national policy" based on religious doctrine.
