QAnon supporter and all-around deplorable person Marjorie Taylor Greene:

PS - The irony is that according to her own Bible, women should not hold positions of authority over men, so she should be booted from Congress based on that alone. She’s also apparently not familiar with the First Amendment and the Treaty of Tripoli.

The reason I don’t hold public office is that my Old Time Religion requires a human sacrifice if I were to be sworn in.

Article VI of the Constitution

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.

Don’t even have to wait until the First Amendment to find out she’s wrong.

I wouldn’t mind getting rid of the practice of swearing in on bibles.  If anything, the Constitution would be a better document to place their hand on so we know they’ve at least touched a copy once.

You would have your choice of among the others being sworn in with you. Might even tip the balance in the Senate.

Here’s the thing: Marjorie Taylor Greene is ignorant, hateful, pro-violence, and a Christian-Fascist.

This is why she was elected to office.

Her constituents are just like her. So are millions of other Republicans.

My text would be “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.”  And if that raised eyebrows, then I’d change it to a gay porn video.

And just for the record - swearing on the Bible is unbiblical. For what it’s worth.

Swearing an oath on the bible
Matthew :-  5   33 -37
33 Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:

34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne:

35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.

36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.

37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.

MTG is on a mental par with DJT.  But as the caretakers of the rose garden know, as soon as you pull out a weed in the rose garden another one is germinating.

I mean, it’s not like swearing on a Bible (or any other book) is going to change the honesty/dishonesty of any politician anyway.
