  •  Today is the day that our President (2+ / 0-)

    demonstrates what it means to "swear on a stack of bibles".

    I'll be watching, and I voted for Obama, but as an atheist I am continually disgusted with the use of this civic ceremony to reinforce the erroneous idea that this is a nation under any god, and that it is proper to endorse Christianity over all other sects during that ceremony.

    PS- from what I can tell, having Presidents of our Constitutionally secular government swear an oath on the bible has not ever improved the level of morality of that book.
