    Saw that today, and good for him.


    People are such self-righteous asshats. It seems that many are unaware that Christianity is not our state religion and in fact the constitution DOES NOT require or even encourage the use of the Bible for oaths, it in fact asks that the person swear on whatever holds the most spiritual weight with them personally.

    How much sense would it make for him to swear on a bible anyway if he does not consider it to be his holy book?



    and for the record: sheer genius requesting Jefferson's copy of the Koran!
