Swearing on the Bible...

Problem: http://www.beliefnet.com/story/169/story_16911_1.html

Answer: In some states, witnesses simply raise their right hand and "solemnly swear or sincerely affirm to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth." I would take an in-between measure. If witnesses want to swear on the Bible, the Q'uran or any other text or item that they revere in good faith, let them do so. If they don't want to, they can take the secular oath above.
