US Ambassador takes oath of office on a digital copy of the Constitution.

US Ambassador takes oath of office on a digital copy of the Constitution. June 3, 2014

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.  🙂
