|yeah, and someone please point me to the part where it says the oath has to be taken over the bible, please...|
It doesn't. One of the past Presidents put his hand on a law book, NOT a bible.
John Q Adams, I believe.
Yup, that's what this article in Time says.
I would lurve to see that happen again in my lifetime.
It just drives me nuts that the President is swearing to uphold the Constitution, a secular document, while swearing on a Bible, "So help me, God". Aarrrgggg!
Howzabout putting your hand on the Constitution and swearing in on THAT, minus the reference to the Sky Daddy? Yeah, as if.
