New Parliamentary Secretary Scott Ryan Brought A Massive Bible To The Swearing In Ceremony Today
Well it's time to lift up our new government in prayer, and the wonderful thing about it that Prime Minister Tony Abbott and most of his team swore their oath of allegiance on the Bible! Not the Koran, or some New Age of Atheistic Oath - the Bible.
Prime Minister Tony Abbott's ministry team was sworn in today. Those being confirmed often bring a Bible that has some personal significance to them.
New Parliamentary secretary Scott Ryan's was easily the biggest. The Victorian senator carried the heavy tome under his arm he approached the desk to be sworn in by GG Quentin Bryce.
