The one biggest thing about going to court (not that I have, but if I did, this would be problematic) that bothers me is swearing an oath with a hand on a bible.
I know that if your a Muslim, you can get the qur'an. The same goes for any other religion. But is there some sort of secular way to swear an oath; because we all know that god doesn't really do much for the court systems. If there is a secular oath, I'd like to know about it, if not: how do you feel about this?

What Nelson said!

 

Oh, thanks for clearing that up haha.

I'd put my hand on The Bible and say "Fuck yeah! I'll tell the truth." Now that is REALLY swearing on a Bible.

If they use a bible, just add the classic "Federal endorsement of a deity or a religion violates the United States constitution" before you swear.

Why do they use the bible by the way? See above.

I think courts should use the "Pinky Swear". It seems to be legally binding as far as our kids are concerned and frankly I reckon it is every bit as reliable as some musty old book.
