Hand on the Quran
Frank James of The Chicago Tribune had this to say about the flap-to-be:
"[T]he Bible-only position is constitutionally untenable. If the federal government were to force an individual to take an oath on a particular book of divine revelation contrary to that individual’s belief, that would contradict not only the Constitution’s First Amendment establishment clause but the nation’s heritage of religious tolerance. . . . Here we just celebrated Thanksgiving which had something to do with Pilgrims finding religious freedom in what later became America, as I recall, and days later, there’s a heated debate over someone choosing to take his oath of office on the Koran versus the Bible. We Americans are nothing if not complicated."
