[Ed. – Liberal temper tantrums over the traditions of this nation, which include the Judeo-Christian foundation of its laws, have become an unfunny joke.]
U.S. Sen. Krysten Sinema, of Arizona, rejected the traditional method of swearing her ceremonial oath on a Bible Thursday and used a copy of the Constitution instead.
The new Senate Democrat, labeled a “longtime pro-abortion extremist” by the Susan B. Anthony List, identifies as religiously unaffiliated, according to the Arizona Republic.
She narrowly defeated pro-life Republican Martha McSally in the November midterm election. However, McSally later was appointed to the state’s second U.S. Senate seat, held by the late Sen. John McCain.
The state news outlet contrasted the positions of the two new female Senators:
On Thursday, U.S. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, a Democrat, took her ceremonial oath of office using a copy of the Constitution rather than a religious book, as most members usually do.
By contrast, U.S. Sen. Martha McSally, a Republican, took her oath using a Bible recovered from the USS Arizona, which sank during the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941.
