Kyrsten Sinema was sworn into Congress Monday, but with a twist: She didnt swear on a Bible.
The newly elected representative for Arizonas 9th district swore her oath of office on a copy of the Constitution instead. Sinema refuses to confirm she is an atheist, as many believe, saying merely that she is not a member of a faith community and that all Americans deserve both freedom of religion and freedom from religion.

The way most congresscritters act once they're in office, they might as well swear their oaths on Grimm's Fairy Tales (which in a lot of ways bears a striking resemblance to the Bible).
I want my country free from Communism.
what good would it do to swear against it?
Putting the hand on a Bible is actually symbolic.
The oath itself is where you make your promise.
The oath ends with “So help me God.”This makes everything before it a promise to God.
Does anyone know if she refused to say So help me God? If she did not say it, she did not take an oath.
I wonder if she knows that?
I read that Obama is going to use the same routine this time as last time. He will have public swearing using two (not one)bible to impress the stooges with his faith in Lincoln. The real swearing ceremony will be the private chambers of Roberts like last time. If I recall some of the gossip, last time there was a copy of the Koran in the room. This guy and Roberts are not doing what our Founders or many, many USA citizens today look for as a legitimate swearing in procedure. Of course 50% of the people could care less including congresspersons.
Actually, if she’s willing to swear on the Constitution, that works for me. If she holds no religious beliefs, at least the idea that she’s faithful to the ideas the Founding Fathers had for this country is good.
Seeing this wretched communist bitch beat Vernon Parker was my second biggest disappointment of the election.
