Kyrsten Sinema is the first openly bisexual U.S. Senator.
She’s a new “hero” to radical LGBT activists.
And she just made a move in front of Vice President Mike Pence that will leave you shaking your head.
Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) decided to take her oath of office on the U.S. Constitution instead of The Bible.
Many LGBT activists jumped at the chance to attack Vice President Mike Pence, a devout Christian, who issued her oath.
Sinema claims to be “religiously unaffiliated” and is the only member of Congress to do so according to the Pew Research Center for Religion and Public Life.
AZ Central reports:
On Thursday, U.S. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, a Democrat, took her ceremonial oath of office using a copy of the Constitution rather than a religious book, as most members usually do.
By contrast, U.S. Sen. Martha McSally, a Republican, took her oath using a Bible recovered from the USS Arizona, which sank during the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941.
Sinema’s move, while legally irrelevant, may only heighten speculation that she is an atheist.
Vice President Mike Pence ended Sinema’s oath with the usual words, “so help you God?” Sinema responded, “I do.” Afterward, he noted that he looked forward to working with her in the Senate.
But Sinema wasn’t the only Democrat to not take the oath of office on The Bible.
New Representatives Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, the first two Muslim women in the U.S. House, took their oaths on the Quran.
Rep. Tlaib faced immediate backlash for saying at a rally, “we’re going to impeach that motherf****r,” referring to President Trump, just hours after taking the oath.
And Rep. Omar has faced backlash for her laundry list of anti-Israel statements.
Not only that, but Sen. Sinema has gotten in hot water for mocking her own constituents and attacking stay-at-home moms.
As we reported, she said that stay-at-home moms “leach off their husbands.”
Do you think these newly elected Democrats are representative of everyday Americans?
