As Obama prepared to be sworn into office for the beginning of his second term as president, Driscoll posted on his Twitter page: “Praying for our president, who today will place his hands on a Bible he does not believe to take an oath to a God he likely does not know.”
The tweet has since gained a great deal of controversy; it has been retweeted 3,181 times as of Tuesday morning, and been “liked” nearly 10,000 times when it was posted on Facebook.
