    Legally, the bible isn't part of the "swearing in" process a person may choose to use any religious book (or none). That whole "freedom of religion" thing doesn't stop when one gets elected.

    I hate to imagine what 'show' George is putting on here:

    America is not a religious nation, in that it is not solely the domain of one particular religion. A President is free to be sworn in without a religious text under his or her hand.

    The USA has its own personal God?

    I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America,
    and to the Republic for which it stands: one Nation under God, indivisible,
    With Liberty and Justice for all.

    A little more than just an object, no?

    One nation under God - not one nation under the American God or the Christian God.

    I don't think the god they had in mind was Allah the moon god.

    I would like that "under god" part taken out. America is the land where religion is free, the church and state should be completely separate.

    I don't think by freedom of faith they meant a nation run exclusively by Christian men. It isn't mandatory for the president to believe in the Sun of God as his or her savior.

    AFAIK no Congressman has ever been allowed to choose a religious book of any kind to be sworn in on - by tradition, and possibly by law (hasn't been tested AFAIK) that would violate the Constitution.

    Ellison was not sworn in on the Koran. He chose Thomas Jefferson's Koran for the photo op props afterwards.

    The SO came home yesterday talking about the lunchroom conversation concerning Obama's secret Muslim faith. This crap is dangerous.

    Notice the patriotic young man in the background who has just realized that Bush will not put his hand on his heart.

    THIS YOUNG MAN HAS NOT BEEN SEEN SINCE.

    Another patriot taken for noticing that Bush is a Chinese mole.

    Its a photo. It proves it.

    Muslims use a lunar calendar, but I have never noticed any particular reverence for the moon amongst muslims. They certainly don't worship the moon.
    Perhaps it is true that the people converted by Mohammed were polytheists, but is this not also true of Hebrews? Didn't Moses have some trouble with a golden calf?

    Maybe we should say that Christians are Calf worshippers.
    The Huckster looks like he might be one.

    lol all this noise over such a little thing

    Over here in Belgium we've had our share of political problems as well, but the funniest one was when the guy who won the elections (as is gonna be prime minister in a month orso) actually sang the French national anthem instead of the belgian one when asked to do so on national TV.
    that was hilarious...but not more than that. This happend a few months ago and the guy still has a career and is still in the running for high office. I mean in the US they would probably hang a presidential candidate if he started singing the Canadian anthem instead of the US one, no?


    what i'm saying is, it doesn't matter how well you can sing or stand straight or smile or shake hands or whatever the fuck. It's the amount of work you do you are judged by

    Barack Obama only tells you what you want to hear to elect him to the Presidency. He won't make any mistakes if he can help it, like a used car salesperson, always trying to convince you how great things are in order to get you to buy a car, even if you don't need one.

    The archeological evidence would seem to indicate that they did.

    Well, if Obama is really Muslim
    and Muslims really worship the Moon
    NASA won't be able to build any stations there soon.

    Vote for Hilary. In the photo she clearly has her hand on her heart.
    That means she's patriotic.

    But actually it seemed like people were saying that because of that photo we know that Obama is not patriotic. These conservatives, on the other hand, are silent about GWB nausea about this great country and his blasphemous hand over his INTESTINAL TRACT during our countries holy song.

    He is touching poop as it is being made and our great song is being sung.

    This proves what liberals have been saying all along.

    Obama is not patriotic. No one thinks he is. He's for himself and his people.

    Why would we criticize W's patriotism? That's one of the things that makes him/American's great. Patriotism is honorable. Mocking America is pathetic.

    Liberals saying what? That they love America's enemies, hate the war on terror, support Islamic terrorists?

    I had a look at this site. It comes up lots of times if you put allah and moon into google. Biblebelievers. They've probably got an agenda don't you think?
