Insofar as a member of Congress taking an oath to serve America and uphold its values is concerned, America is interested in only one book, the Bible. If you are incapable of taking an oath on that book, don't serve in Congress.
Wow. I just. . .
Only gasps of laughter can define exactly how I feel about that statement.
I suggest that we all vote on exactly which book we want every rep to swear on when we vote in each election. They could put a little box next to the race, so you can say that the Secretary of State needs to swear on the Tao Te Ching, the Governor should swear on the Torah, your congressman should swear on the Koran, and the president should swear in the Principia Discorida.
At least if the current president had sworn on the Principia, he'd have been telling the truth.
