On NBC News: Get Rid of the Bible on Inauguration Day

This tweet flashed by on my timeline this morning. Since it was Lou Ann Zelenik sharing the link I felt compelled to get a laugh at whatever inanity she was getting riled up about. She cherry picked a quote from the linked article (which itself is a quote from the YouTube video below):

It turns out there is no better way for a pastor to get kicked out of the inauguration ceremony than quoting the Bible

I think Ms. Zelenik probably just skimmed the article and certainly didn’t watch the 9 minute video of Mr. O’Donnell explanation. I think she just saw the little quoted piece and felt that her type of people (knee jerk religious conservatives, usually young earther types) would be outraged by it and feel that President Obama was probably infringing on Mr. Giglio religious freedom by not allowing him to give the benediction.

Anyway, watch the video as it’s most excellent.
