CHRISTIAN CONGRESSMEN SWEAR ON PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE
Washington D.C. (January 6, 2007) -- In a controversy that eerily mirrors the recent dispute over a congressman's use of the Koran, several Christian representatives have asked to be sworn in on the best-seller, The Purpose Driven Life.
"We were asked to use the most meaningful text in our life," said Rep. John T. McGruder of Colorado Springs, from his state's seventh district. And, as far as I can see, my Pastor preaches more from Rick Warren than the Bible."
McGruder and Rep. James R. Newhell of Wheaton (R-Ill) both petitioned Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to be allowed to use the famous evangelical guidebook in the swearing in ceremony at the Capitol.
Reactions from other Congressman and public figures were mixed.
"I see no reason not to allow others to use their own books -- as long as ALLAH AKBAR!" shouted Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn). Rep. Ellison, who is a Muslim, had requested to use the Koran for his swearing in ceremony and is, apparently, the inspiration for the requests from Representatives McGruder and Newhell.
Well-known talk show host Dennis Prager was among those who roundly condemned Rep. Ellisons request. Prager, who is Jewish, was also opposed to the use of The Purpose Driven Life.
"I dont understand why a Christian wouldnt use the Bible, especially an evangelical, Prager asked rhetorically. Do they think they've used up all the material there?"
Other evangelicals welcome the change.
"This open-mindedness is truly godly," said Lincoln Bradford, pastor and noted praise-song author. "I hope eventually they'll use more personally inspiring items worship music CDs, Ron Dicianni paintings, the Foot Prints in the Sand poem. This country and the modern church were founded on a christian right to have a personalized relationship with God regardless of what in the Bible."

Disclaimer. This is a Door Magazine article it is satire folks. Who says I don't have a sense of humor. The real scary thing is that things have been so goofy in the church lately its hard to even write satire anymore. Truth has been stranger than fiction lately. And if you think this story is far-fetched?
Well who knows what the future holds.
Tim
