If you are offended that John Brennan swore in on a constitution instead of a bible..

You are a god damn moron.

Oaths are not magic spells. Putting your hand on a stack of paper full of religious stories doesn't make the oath into a magic spell. Putting your hand on a constitution instead of a bible doesn't kill, negate, block or in any way inhibit God from anything.

He was appointed to be the director of the CIA, not the minister of your church or leader of your prayer group.

Swearing in is an official government process. It is not "sacred". It is not a religious ceremony. It is not another chance for you to demand that your superstitions be recognized.

He swore an oath to uphold and defend our constitution, not your fucking religion. Grow the fuck up, you fucking babies.

Had to check my Facebook feed to see if anyone was up on this one. Some of my family are mouth-breathing religious types. Fortunately, they seem to only get their news from email forwards, so they're usually a couple weeks behind the curve.

Sorry guys, I just had to vent. I was listening to the radio and Lars had on some religious minister and they were talking about how if you don't swear in on the bible then you don't believe that God is really watching you so it's not as effective and it will be easier for you to lie or break your oath...

I was like, are you fucking serious? What year is it again?

They were talking about him almost like they were accusing him of being a witch. Only instead of being a witch, he had somehow figured out how to block their witchcraft by not using a bible. And they were most upset by this trickery. They acted like he found a loophole in their religion.
