Lawmaker claims Dems are out to eliminate ‘so help me God’ from congressional oath
Rep. Mike Johnson, R-La., is accusing Democrats of making a concerted effort to eliminate “so help me God” from the congressional oath.
Americans “need to know that there is a concerted effort now to change this tradition,” Johnson said on “The Todd Starnes Show.”
Fox News reported last month that the House Committee on Natural Resources was looking to remove the phrase from the oath, sparking outrage among conservatives. The phrase appeared in a rules proposal draft in brackets, with a red line through it.
