Catholic League president Bill Donohue said in a press release that Barack Obama should use Karl Marx's "Das Kapital" instead of the Bible when he takes his oath of office later this month, the Huffington Post reported Friday.
"Given Obamas ideology, perhaps it would make more sense for him to swear on Das Kapital," Donohue wrote.
Donohue issued his release in response to comments made by MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell, who suggested that Obama should not use the Bible in his swearing-in ceremony.
"ODonnell starts his rant by focusing on Atlanta Pastor Louie Giglio; the evangelical minister bowed to pressure from homosexual activists by agreeing not to give the benediction at President Obamas inaugural. Pastor Giglios crime? Hes a Christian," Donohue said.
"Practicing Christians, along with observant Jews, Mormons, Muslims and millions of others, accept the biblical teachings on the sinfulness of homosexuality. In the 1990s, Giglio addressed this subject, citing Christian teachings, and that was enough to set off the alarms in gay quarters," he wrote.
"Over the past few decades, many homosexuals and theologians have tried to argue that the Bibles passages condemning homosexuality should not be read as condemning homosexuality. In their postmodern mind, they say that interpretation is wrong. ODonnell, to his credit, knows these savants are delusional. While he readily admits that the Bible condemns homosexuality, his level of cognitive development does not allow him to discern the difference between behavior and status, which is why he falsely claims the Bible condemns 'gay people,' Donahue added.
Donohue went on to say that O'Donnell has a problem with the Bible, not Giglio. He also said that O'Donnell's point about Obama not using the Bible is "not without merit" since the president has embraced the gay agenda.

Bath-House Barry SWEAR to anything!?! He speaks Taqiya! (Islam-approved LYING for political purposes.)
I don’t care if he swears on a gay magazine; he’s illegitimate.
May his hand suffer burns if he touches a Bible.
He is a Kenite—a spawn of the original murderer.
He cursed himself the first time around because God can not be witness to a lie.
And he is fixing to do it a second time.
It’s ludicrous for Obama to swear on the Bible. The Bible condemns in no uncertain terms most of the things he supports. I’m glad Catholic brass are waking up and speaking up about Obama’s hypocrisy and anti-Christian agenda. Now, its time for priests to either stop giving communion to Piglosi and Biden or leave the church.
NO CHURCH can perform gay marriage or give any service to politicians who support it.
NO CHURCH can give any service to politicians who back abortions.
I love Giglio’s comment that he wanted to avoid gays making the Inauguration about them and avoid making it another step in their agenda. Something like that. In a different paper.
I wish this fraudulent nutjob would shut up.
He should swear on a copy of Mein Kampf, as he is Der Fuhrer.
He should just swear-in on “Hustler” magazine and be done with it.
