There’s a new Foxhole Atheist — Megan Hurwitt — and the video of her induction into the Texas Army National Guard is something I’m not used to seeing:
Justin Griffith offers this transcript:
“I, your name.” I, Megan Hurwitt.
“Do solemnly swear.” Do solemnly affirm.*pause*
“To support and defend” To support and defend
“The Constitution of the United States” the Constitution of the United States,
“And the state of Texas” and the state of Texas,
“against all enemies”, against all enemies,
“foreign and domestic” foreign and domestic,
“according to regulations” according to regulations
“and laws” and laws.
“So help me god.” *crickets*
Sometimes, not saying something says more than you think.
