This nation was not founded on the Bible or the Ten Commandments. In fact, freedom was the foundation of this nation, including freedom of (and from) religion. Agree or disagree, but all evidence points to that.
What I'd like to discuss, though, are the points made in this segment of The Last Word, especially this:
“We will ensure that whoever delivers the benediction rejects the same parts of the Bible that President Obama rejects and most Democrats reject, even though every word of the Bible is the word of God,” O’Donnell said. “As I’ve pointed out … no one accepts all of the teachings of the Bible. No one. … Still, the president, following one of our most absurdest traditions in the government that invented the separation of church and state, will put his hand on this book filled with things he does not believe – filled with things that no one in the United States of America believes – and with his hand on this book he will recite the oath of office. ”
(Bold and italics are mine, not O'Donnell's)
The video is worth watching, too - especially when he talks about the parts of the Bible that command death to prostitutes, death to those who work on the Sabbath, etc.
