Dozens of local residents were sworn in Friday as naturalized U.S. citizens, but one of the new Americans insisted on taking a special oath, one that removed all references to God. Thomas Kaenzig says he left his native Switzerland because of religious persecution. He had to file a lawsuit in federal court to get the attention of immigration officials concerning the oath new citizens must take.
The oath asks new citizens to swear to God and a promise to bear arms. Kaenzig is a Raelian and doesn’t believe in God. He’s also a pacifist.
Federal officials agreed to change the oath to accommodate his beliefs. Kaenzig knows his decision will tick off a lot of people but he thinks it shouldn’t.

Why do we have to adjust for someone coming to our nation? Don’t we have enough kooks already? Why would we allow someone to become a citizen that believes a Swastika is OK? Who did his “special” oath swear to Spock?
