And Why is the Bible Better Than the Quran?

I'm not one to post political stuff, but this made me laugh. Some poeple are such stubborn jackasses, they think only their tranditions and religions make sense.

As he prepares to become the first Muslim in Congress, Rep.-elect Keith Ellison says the Constitution gives him the right to take the oath of office on the Quran, and that's what he intends to do Jan. 4.

...The "argument" against it:

"When all elected officials take their oaths of office with their hands on the very same book, they all affirm that some unifying value system underlies American civilization," Prager wrote. "If Keith Ellison is allowed to change that, he will be doing more damage to the unity of Americans and to the value system that has formed this country than the terrorists of 9/11."

Yeeaaaahhh. Riiight.

Taking an oath is nothing more than a symbolic action anyway. If He's not Christain, what symbolism does the Bible hold? That's pointless. Gah. I don't think I need to comment any more on this. It's simply ubsurd.
