    Seems to make more sense than having a non-Christian person swear on a bible.

    Quran, Bible. Both books full of nonsense so good for her for picking a different fairy tale to swear on...

    Ya, she seems to be big into symbolism

    ---The incoming congresswoman said that she has considered the possibility of using Thomas Jefferson's Quran or her own, calling the former President's Quran a "symbol," that "Islam has been part of American history for a long time.---

    I wonder if we're ready for an openly Atheist congressman, or do we already have one?

    I don't get this line of thinking. You don't like Christianity mixed with governing, so you'll support a more conservative belief system intruding into government because it (seemingly) opposes Christianity? Derp.

    How about keep all religious symbols and beliefs out of a secular governing body? Be a person of faith on your own time, and be secular while you're representing a secular organization.

    Don’t think we have one but I’m positive there are quite a few in there. And of course we are ready

    I don't see a problem with this. If she's doing the job, she's doing the job.

    No since Christianity IS unfortunately mixed with governing and Christians think they have a monopoly on American religion it’s nice to see another religion get some representation.

    I agree with your last paragraph in a perfect world but as long as Christians try and claim America I like to see them fail.
