Sen. Elizabeth Warren was asked: "What role does faith play in your life, your public life and your private life?"
She responded that she was raised Methodist and was a fifth grade Sunday school teacher ("All I can say is nobody got hurt"), then named her favorite story of the Bible -- The Sheep and the Goats.
It taught her two things: "The first is there is God. There is value in every single human being. And the second, Warren said, "is that we are called to action."
"That passage is not about you had a good thought and held on to it. You sat back and were just a part of -- you know, thought about good things. It does not say, you just didn't hurt anybody, and that's good enough. No. It says, you saw something wrong. You saw somebody who was thirsty. You saw somebody who was in prison. You saw their face. You saw somebody who was hungry, and it moved you to act. I believe we are called on to act."
