Oaths Taken On Something Other Than Bible?

If passed, the bill would allow courtroom oaths to be taken using texts other than the Bible. A Muslim woman and the North Carolina chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union have sued the state because she was not allowed to swear an oath on the Quran in 2003 when she was called as a witness in a court case. Current state law allows witnesses to use only the Bible when swearing or affirming truthful testimony.
