Phillies Will Not Swear Oath on Bible

If Libertarian presidential hopeful George Phillies wins the presidency he will not take the oath of office on the Bible but on the Constitution.

"When a President takes office, he should place his hand in one place: on the Constitution and the Bill of Rights he is swearing to protect. And then, having sworn to protect our Constitution, he should do so," says Phillies.

He concludes that: "Unlike Mr. Romney and his Republican religious extremist cohorts, I will protect and defend America, our Constitution and our Bill of Rights, not proselytize for one faith or another. I will protect freedom for people of all beliefs by swearing on the very document that guarantees those freedoms."
