O’Donnell on the Bible at the Inauguration

Lawrence O’Donnell uses the controversy over Louie Giglio’s aborted inaugural appearance to reflect on America’s confusing relationship with the Bible:

“And as the first lady is holding [the bible] for the president, sitting somewhere near them will be a pastor who the inauguration committee will make sure is much more adept at hiding what that book actually says than Louie Giglio was.”

    He makes a great point there… I wonder if the president could swear it on the constitution instead of the bible

    Why not? They’re both basically just a book of rules…but the bible also contains fables. Which is more factual?

    The most telling part is the explosion of anger from Christians who swear blind they really do believe in the bible, every bit of it, and the other Christians who are angry at O’Donnell’s “sick” speech where he says what the bible actually says, thus proving his point: none of these people have read the damn thing and they don’t know or believe much of what it says.

    I find it ironic that people feel compelled to take an oath on a book that says not to take oaths!
