The Democratic representatives who will be boycotting President-elect Donald Trump's inaugural are going to be missing out on a remarkable ceremony with two very special Bibles.
One will be from his own family, given to him by his mother, and the other will be President Lincoln's Bible.
More from USA Today:
Alex Stroman, the deputy director of communications for the 58th Inaugural Committee, confirmed the picks Tuesday morning. The Lincoln Bible, used during the 16th president's first inauguration, was most recently a part of President Obama's first and second inauguration ceremonies and is a part of the Library of Congress' collection. Trump's Bible, a revised standard version, was presented to him in 1955 by his mother upon graduation from Sunday Church Primary School in New York.
Some might see this as a jab at those who cast doubt on Trump's faith during the run-up to the election by citing his "two Corinthians" gaffe, and his remark that he had never asked for God's forgiveness.
