Kyrsten Sinema and VP Mike Pence
Newly-elected Democrat Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema, was sworn in on Thursday and refused to take her oath on the Holy Bible.
Ms. Sinema opted to be sworn into office by placing her hand on a copy of the US Constitution and the Arizona Constitution, reported AZ Central.
On Thursday, U.S. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, a Democrat, took her ceremonial oath of office using a copy of the Constitution rather than a religious book, as most members usually do.
By contrast, U.S. Sen. Martha McSally, a Republican, took her oath using a Bible recovered from the USS Arizona, which sank during the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941.
Sinema is a radical Code Pink activist and a Taliban sympathizer who won the Arizona Senate race against Martha McSally after thousands of votes appeared post election day.
Kyrsten Sinema is the only member of the Senate who does not claim to be a member of any religion.
The newly elected Arizona Senator is openly bisexual, making her the second member the Senate to be a part of the LGBTQ community.
Two Muslim Democrat lawmakers in the House were sworn into office Thursday with a Quran rather than a Bible.
