    Of course, nothing in the constitution says that you have to take the oath on a Bible. Someday someone may be using a Koran, topped with a copy of the “art of the deal” before adoring Republicans.

    The bible is a worthless book for swearing and keeping oaths. Twitter’s T&C’s are more stringent.

    Not sure where you’re going — as if it mattered what book were there. No book is required at all. It’s Biden taking the oath that counts. Yes, Biden not Obama.

    It doesn’t even have to be done by the Chief Justice. It just has to be witnessed by a competent adult

    I haven’t been reading Stahler long enough to know his politics, but I can live with Obama’s legacy. The best I remember Lyndon Johnson was sworn in without a Christian Bible. Why being sworn in with your hand on a Christian Bible anyway? Before anyone gets all snarly, I know Christians who object to swearing or making an oath, especially on their god’s word or book. Oh, the Bible forbids it, anyway. Jesus, (yeah, that Jesus) in Matthew 5:33 Swear not at all.

    There has been at least one legislator that I know of who has been sworn in on a Quran.

    I took an oath of office over 50 years ago. It ended with the words, “so help me God.”

    I’ve been out of the service for decades, but I still hold myself to that oath. It isn’t the book that matters, it’s the state of heart that counts.

    I wonder if that is the same Bible Trump held up after teargassing the crowd?

    Trump said it and I believe it. In his “farewell address” he stated that we are headed for better times. We certainly are, starting about noon today.

    Still full of hatred for the left. Try to give the country a chance to recover.

    book/no book, party/no party, I just pray they are able to help correct some of the ills that beset this country. They have 4 years, of which at least half will be wasted fighting partisanship, venality, and attempts to obfuscate the issues past resolution.

    Better than: “Trump – A waste land”.

    Biden has more genuine faith in his little finger than the whole Trump family of grifters. Not sure what your point is here.

    Bet you if they did get to just hold the bible, he would at least hold it up the right way

    They say the Douay-Rheims bible is kosher.

    Just finished reading “ A Promised Land” and I think "The Audacity of Hope” would be a better choice.

    Biden went to church this morning while Trump was pardoning his goons.

    Obama will be there, so no need for his book to be advertised.

    Biden will be using a 127 year old family bible.

    The book isn’t important, what is important is how the person handles the responsibility the oath demands.

    Remember when Trump tear gassed peaceful protesters so he could hold a bible upside down in front of a closed church?

    Judging by how The Repulsican Crime Cult treats the Bible, it is fast becoming an archaic fable of history. SAD.

    Biden was sworn in on his own family bible. It is huge and old. Watch the inauguration video on YouTube.
