Judge Swears In On Koran, Conservatives Outraged



Judge Carolyn Walker-Diablo is a Muslim American who swore into her position on a Koran. This didn’t sit well with many Christian conservatives, especially the ones at Fox News. Cenk Uygur, host of the The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. "Geo.TV (Pakistan), Christian News Network and other news sources report that the recently elected New York trial court judge Carolyn Walker-Diallo was sworn in on the Koran; you can see a video of the swearing-in ceremonyhere. Can someone be sworn in on the Koran, rather than the Bible? Not only can she, but she should. As I argued in the National Review in 2006, when Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) was sworn in on the Koran, an oath of office is a religious ritual, both in its origins and its use by the devout today. The oath invokes God as a witness to one’s promise, as a means of making the promise more weighty on the oath-taker’s conscience.”* Read more here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/volokh-conspiracy/wp/2015/12/15/muslim-judge-in-new-york-takes-oath-on-the-koran/ ********** The Young Turks December 17, 2015 Hour 1 https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLTpcK80irdQixkb-ROd0sGgb7jSf8aZY2 Bernie Sanders Raising Massive Cash WITHOUT Corporate Donors https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fGkiGifctC8&index=1&list=PLTpcK80irdQixkb-ROd0sGgb7jSf8aZY2 How To Beat ISIS https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MygUTc5FHPU&index=2&list=PLTpcK80irdQixkb-ROd0sGgb7jSf8aZY2 Republicans Compare Childlike ISIS Strategies https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D9PnBbYK0HI&index=3&list=PLTpcK80irdQixkb-ROd0sGgb7jSf8aZY2 Judge Swears In On Koran, Conservatives Outraged https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5hC0jN5PHg&index=4&list=PLTpcK80irdQixkb-ROd0sGgb7jSf8aZY2 Professor Suspended For Views On Allah https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PiBbb9YKREk&index=5&list=PLTpcK80irdQixkb-ROd0sGgb7jSf8aZY2 ********** The Largest Online News Show in the World.
