Lawrence O’Donnell To President Obama: Remove Bible From Inauguration

O’Donnell found this new search to be a tricky task for the committee, re-framing it as, “In other words, 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.”

 

Rather than search for a replacement for Pastor Louie Giglio, who was forced to withdraw from reciting the benediction at President Obama’s upcoming inaugurationLawrence O’Donnell has another idea: remove the Bible altogether.

Lawrence O’Donnell To President Obama: Remove Bible From Inauguration

Atheist activists aren’t the only ones looking to nix the Bible and references to God from President Barack Obama’s inauguration. MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell also took aim at the holy book today, dismissing its purportedly heinous contents and urging the president not to include it in his Jan. 21 inaugural ceremony.

After discussing Pastor Louie Giglio’s recent decision to remove himself from Obama’s choice of benediction speakers, O’Donnell launched into a tirade against the Bible and its presence at the historical event. In addition to defending the gay rights movement against Giglio’s nearly-20-year-old sermon, the MSNBC host dismissed the Bible as an antiquated book that virtually nobody can agree with in its entirety.

“No one accepts all of the teachings of the Bible — no one,” O’Donnell proclaimed. “There are no literal followers of the word of God as presented in the Bible left on earth. If there were any, they would have to be burning people at the stake all day, every day.”
