Something has been bothering me for a while now.
Mind you, I've never had to go to court, and don't know how all the processes work, and I'm not in trouble or anything, this is just a question
that's been bugging me. (This is for my fellow U.S. citizens.)
Okay, question: Is swearing on the Bible in court a violation of separation of church and state?
I mean, if you refuse to swear on the Bible, wouldn't that effect the jury's decision?
I dunno, can anyone explain this?
