Should we require citizens of other countries, who may be here legally, to swear to support OUR Constitution instead of their own?
Arizona Republicans Propose Bill That Would Not Allow Christians to Graduate
Matthew 5;33-37:I, _______, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge these duties; So help me God.
33 “Again, you have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘Do not break your oath, but fulfill to the Lord the vows you have made.’ 34 But I tell you, do not swear an oath at all: either by heaven, for it is God’s throne; 35 or by the earth, for it is his footstool; or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the Great King. 36 And do not swear by your head, for you cannot make even one hair white or black. 37 All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.
The oath this is coming from already has built-in alternative words. When I enlisted I was asked if I had a a problem using the word "swear" or "God". Those who object to "swear" are given a synonym in it's place. Those who object to "God" complete the oath at "duties" and stop.
