Sway-yah on Dat Bible, You Sombeech

A North Carolina district judge says that trial witnesses cannot use the Koran for oaths in court.

The Greensboro (N.C.) News & Record reports that Guilford County's top judge, W. Douglas Albright, says North Carolina law is clear that the only legitimate oaths are those made on "Holy Scriptures."

"Everybody understands what the holy scriptures are," Albright previously told the Greensboro paper. "If they don't, we're in a mess."

One supposes the same could be said about a judge not understanding the Constitution.

Err, maybe I'm being too glib, but it doesn't say whose Holy Scriptures.

The Koran is pretty damn holy to some people, as everyone not living under a rock (or watching FauxNews 24/7) should have realized sometime this month.
