Michael Stone over at Progressive Secular Humanist flagged this article. Suzi Levine, our new Ambassador to Switzerland and Liechtenstein did not take her oath of office on a bible, but rather on a copy of the Constitution opened in an e-reader:
In a peculiar “sign-of-the-times” moment last Friday, Suzi LeVine was sworn in as the United States’ newest Ambassador to Switzerland and Liechtenstein by raising her right hand and placing the left on a digital copy of the Constitution. Instead of a paper-bound book, she swore the oath on an e-reader. It is believed to be the first Oath of Office consecrated in non-book form.
Good on her. 🙂
