This is a suggestion that has been made. Check it out:
Catholic League president Bill Donohue on Friday published a news release, in which he suggested that President Barack Obama should swear in on “Das Kapital” – Karl Marx’s famous analysis of political economy — rather than the Bible.
As the New Civil Rights Movement notes, Donohue’s comments had been published as a response to recent remarks made by MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell about the controversy surrounding Pastor Louie Giglio.
Giglio had been selected to deliver the benediction at the president’s inauguration but had bowed out of the responsibility after coming under fire for an anti-gay sermon he delivered in the mid-1990s.
