“The Lonesome Pair” refers to a pair of Bibles which will be employed during the ceremony. One of the Bibles belonged to President Abraham Lincoln, and the other Bible had been Dr. Martin Luther King‘s possession.
The irony of the presence of the two Bibles at the celebrated event is rich. It was during President Obama’s first term that a struggle for religious liberty ensued. Obama’s HHS mandates have threatened many Church and commercial entities’ freedom of conscience. The Benghazi deaths cry out for justice, and the country’s outlook appears bleak. During this time, Obama wins a second opportunity to lead a nation. In a nod of homage, the President calls to mind President Abraham Lincoln and Dr. Martin Luther King, through use of their Biblical possessions during the ceremony.
