Troll-Level, Master: Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine Takes Oath on a Whole Stack of Bibles

EXCERPT:

In a bit of a break from tradition, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine, in a ceremony performed just after midnight on Monday, took the oath of office not on a single Bible, but on a whole stack of them.

All of the nine Bibles have sentimental meaning to the DeWine family one was acquired in Jerusalem, another was given to the governor by his wife on their 10th wedding anniversary, and one was the childhood Bible of the DeWines' late daughter, Becky, who died in a car accident in 1993. There were also Bibles belonging to DeWine's mother, aunt, grandfather, grandmother, and great-grandmother, along with a study Bible that was a gift from Lloyd Ogilvie, chaplain of the U.S. Senate, and Mike and Fran DeWine's personal family Bible

The stack of Bibles is in sharp contrast to recent news of newly minted members of Congress taking their oaths on Korans and law textbooks.

DeWine, a devout Catholic, was officially sworn in at a private ceremony at his family home in Cedarville, Ohio, early Monday morning, surrounded by his family and a small group of public officials. "We have all of our kids and most of our grandkids here," DeWine said, "so this is really a family event." His wife Fran interrupted: "There are a couple more asleep upstairs."
