Congressional Democrats on Committee Propose Removal of 'So Help You God' From Oath

The Democrats continue to push further and further left. Congressional Democrats on the House Committee on Natural Resources proposed to remove the words "so help you God" from the oath that is recited before committee hearings begin.

Apparently they find it offensive.

Per The Hill:

The House Committee on Natural Resources is reportedly seeking to have the words “so help you God” removed from the oath recited by witnesses who testify before the panel, according to a proposal obtained by Fox News.

The rules proposal states that witnesses appearing in hearings before the committee would be administered the following oath: “Do you solemnly swear or affirm, under penalty of law, that the testimony that you are about to give is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth[, so help you God]?”

According to Fox News, the “so help you God” phrasing is written in brackets in red in the draft which indicates the words are slated for removal.

Remember back in 2012 the Democratic Platform was scrubbed of the word "God" was mentioned in it. When there was serious backlash they scrambled to re-write the platform to allow religious principles in there. It took a two-thirds vote to get this added back. Many in this video did not get the message. It was passed despite not having the necessary two-thirds to do so.

It seems after a long layoff there should be more pressing items to take care of it. It's interesting the Dems have ranked this as a top priority.
