Response from MRFF Board Member John Compere

The US Constitution provides only secular oaths & forbids any religious tests (Article VI). Jesus & his brother even opposed sworn oaths (Matthew 5:34&37; James 5:12).
The US Constitution, American law & US Armed Forces regulations prohibit our government from promoting or endorsing a religion (e.g. requiring sworn oaths on a religious scripture book).
Your malicious message is moronically misdirected & would be more rationally redirected at those who disrespect & disregard our laws rather than at those of us who respect & request compliance with them.
