Newly Elected Arizona Democrat Senator Sinema Refuses To Take Oath On Bible

CBS: Kyrsten Sinema chose not to hold the traditional Bible when she was sworn in Thursday as a U.S. senator from Arizona.
Instead, she held a law book from the Library of Congress. She also refused to use a bible during the three times she was shown into the U.S. House. Sinema is the first Democrat since 1988 to be elected to the Senate from Arizona.
The Arizona Republic says her decision to forgo using a religious book fuels ongoing speculation that she is an atheist.
Sinema describes herself as bisexual and is the second openly gay person to be elected to Senate, joining Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), who is a lesbian.
Editorial Note: In the past, the new Senator said it was acceptable for anarchists and Antifa to perpetrate violence, carry weapons, and destroyed property in pursuit of their extremist goals.
