This tells nothing. We have no state religion in this country. So Keith Ellison can swear in with his hand on any book he wants.

I'm sorry, Happy, the original comment was that non-Christian public official ought be voted out because he wouldn't swear on the Bible. In a nation fundamentally against the notion of state religion, willingness to swear on a Bible is an inappropriate criterion for holding public office. Do agree or disagree, and why?

Taking oaths on the bible is neandertal, and disrespectful to those who don't accept it as "the word of God". Will this country ever be enlightened enough to get past such primitive behavior?

Unless you are a naturalized citizen, you have no reason to be proud to be American. You had nothing to do with that; it was an accident of birth.
But I'm GLAD to be American, in a country where I can criticize your biblical bullshit.
