Under the US Constitution, Bill of Rights- Amendment 1, it states “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting free exercise thereof...” Currently in any courthouse within the US, when a witness swears an oath to tell the truth, the witness is asked to place his or her right hand on top of a Holy Bible, which is the book of the Christian Relgion. This is in violation of Amendment 1 of the US Constitution because of its forcing religious scriptures onto citizens and prohibiting the rights of people of varying faiths, or of no religious faith. By removal of the Holy Bible from the courtroom, truth and fairness have more of a chance to enter and bigotry, prejudice, and superstition have less room to sway the minds of juries and judges. I’m this modern 21st Century, we have grown and learned that the Holy Bible is a book of contradictions and lies. It should be replaced immediately with the United States Constitution, as the logical choice. A witness taking the stand in a United States courtroom should swear upon the book that rules the courtroom, not a book that rules the Christian Church, which whom this country struggled and fought to gain freedom from in its founding.
