Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, first Congressperson to officially describe her religion as “none,” is sworn in not on the Bible, but on the document she’s actually supposed to be protecting and upholding—the Constitution.
Edit: She’s also the first openly bisexual Congressperson. (via eyesdriftskyward)
[Fun fact: James Madison remains the only president to take his oath of office on a book of laws, rather than the Bible.]

While making no commentary on the religious angle at play, doesn’t it seem like using the U.S. Constitution for swearing-ins makes a lot more sense, as a function of government?
