..... What do they do with elected persons who do not belong to/believe an organized religion? Has anybody, so far, used Oahspe, or the local telephone directory or some other big non-religious book? Or a modern telephone/camera?
..... Has Satan been invoked, so far, at a swearing-in ceremony?[LAUGHS]
