Let's talk about Dennis Prager. He is in a tizzy about incoming congressman Keith Ellison because Ellison, a Muslim, wants to take his oath of office on the Koran. Well, duh, it is his holy book. Prager says, and I quote
"Insofar as a member of Congress taking an oath to serve America and uphold its values is concerned, America is interested in only one book, the Bible."
Of course there is one little glitch, that being the US Constitution.
Article VI, Section 3 has this to say.
"The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States."
Last year Bill O'Reilly went of on his yearly rant about the phrase "Happy Holiday" being a threat to Christmas. The best part of that was for a week or more into his nightly rants, you could go to the Fox News website and buy Bill O'Reilly holiday ornaments.
This year, he's off on IPods. He says
"I don't own an iPod. I would never wear an iPod... If this is your primary focus in life - the machines... it's going to have a staggeringly negative effect, all of this, for America... did you ever talk to these computer geeks? I mean, can you carry on a conversation with them?"
You can even download the podcast where he says all that if you want.
