Swear on what

Here is the link to the article
First Muslim in Congress

It's a shame that more people do not know more about the constitution and the reasons for it. Even more alarming is when people claim our country was founded on Christianity when in fact the basis of our country is the exact opposite.. This country was founded on the "FREEDOM" of religion!! Not just the freedom to be christian, but the freedom to be what ever religion you choose, so long as that it does not induce violence. By the way, if we were going to eliminate all religions that beget or induced violence, then Christianity would be the FIRST to go, right along with the Islamic faith. There is little difference in my opinion between the violence created and caused by the Islamic faith compared to the violence created and caused by the Christian faith. Both are filled with belief in an arrogant and pity GOD, and both cause their believers to be Extremely prejudice people. I still look forward to the day when we finally drop the childish ways... Sometimes it seems like people just want someone to release their anger toward. Someone they can bully around. Someone they can show is less than they are... I'm done for now.. :)

I couldn't agree more. I love when people claim this is a christian country, then you read the first amendment to them. Or some of the lovely quotes like, "I do not find in orthodox christianity one redeeming feature." Thomas Jefferson.
or the favorite, "America is not, in any sense founded on the chrstian religion." George Washinton.
That second one is tough to argue with.
