The bigger issue is that by him swearing on the Koran, it says that it matters to him what is IN the Koran--obviously. And THAT is the scary thing!

I won't be surprised if there is an earthquake tomorrow, when he is sworn in.

Wow. A congressman brave enough to go against the mold and try to set an example for us. There's hope for our republic yet.

As far as I'm concerned the Koran is just as good an instrument to swear upon as the Bible. Both can be used to find excuses for acts of love and hate, How we live our lives comes not from the literal texts, but from how we interpret their messages.

If swearing in on any book is to mean what swearing in means, then doesn't it make sense that the man swears by a book that has meaning to him? Sometimes "Christians" show no intelligence at all. A comment like yours embarrasses me and many other Christians. Also, do you know the Koran Mr. Ellison swore in on belonged to a founding member of our country, none other than Thomas Jefferson. Think before you make derogatory comments about good people.
