Default Re: Swearing the Oath on the Sacred Holy Bible

In a past life where I sometimes had occasion to talk to people requiring them to have taken an oath or affirmation, I noted the legislation actually referred to a "holy book". Though a team bible got me by.

The only time I have ever had to take an oath or make an affirmation myself was, a little like SEG, joining the Army Reserve. In those days I churched hard and so I actually took the affirmation on the basis that the Bible says not to take oaths. Go figure.
If you need to wonder what would drive somebody to instruct lawyers, you may already be close to trouble.
