In case you were wondering, newly-elected Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), the sole religiously “unaffiliated” member of Congress (but, whatever you do, don’t call her an atheist), was recently sworn in by Speaker of the House John Boehner.
So what is that she’s swearing on? Is it a Bible?
I asked her staff and they told me it was a copy of the U.S. Constitution.
Let me count the ways that I LOVE this!
First we had Hindu Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard sworn in using the Bhagavad-Gita, and now we have this. This is a great day for those who are tired of the Christo-fascists trying to hijack our country.
And the best part? The best part is, what they can they say against her choice of using the Constitution?
Not a damn thing!
In fact I think that EVERY new Senator and House member should be sworn in using the US Constitution. After all they were not elected to defend the Ten Commandments, they were elected to defend the Constitution.
And it is about damn time they were reminded of that fact!
