Buddhist Scholar Calls Grover Norquist Tax Pledge A "seditious oath, a treasonous oath"

Professor Robert Thurman has posted a video on YouTube in which he explicitly says that he's trying to start a meme. He wants to get people to reject the Grover Norquist pledge to not raise taxes and the politicians who take it. He says that politicos who sign the pledge are essentially pledging to pursue a goal that runs contrary to their oath of office.

His argument is that pledging to not raise taxes in a bid to shrink the government so it can be drowned in a bathtub contradicts the oath of office.
