    Congress Poised to Remove God from Committee Oath

    -

    Members of Congress are pushing to remove all references of God and gender from oaths taken before House committees.

    The proposed draft rules for the House Committee on Natural Resources was recently made public. The package proposes the removal of the phrase “so help you God” while adding the phrase “under penalty of law.”

    The proposed rules also add gender inclusive edits, changing “chairman” to “chair” and on multiple occasions replacing “his or her” with “their.”

    The House Committee on Natural Resources is expected to vote in the coming week on whether to approve the rules proposal which, if adopted, will be immediately implemented.
