Obama To Literally Swear On A Stack Of Bibles

ObamaSwears

The White House has announced that President Barack Obama will take the oath of office with his hand on not one but two bibles. One of the bibles belonged to President Abraham Lincoln, and the other belonged to Rev. Martin Luther King. Obama identifies strongly with these two men because Lincoln brought the country through a time of great internal conflict, because King brought about great social change, and because both were killed by white men with guns.
