ACLU Sues to Use Koran in Court Room Oath

On July 26th the ACLU filed a lawsuit against the state of North Carolina to try to have the Koran used for the swearing in of witnesses in state courts. The irony of this is self evident.

NewsMax has the story:
"We hope that the court will issue a ruling that the phrase 'holy scripture' includes the Quran, Old Testament and Bhagavad-Gita in addition to the Christian Bible," said Jennifer Rudinger, executive director of the ACLU of North Carolina.

Why stop there, Jennifer? In my youth, I knew people whose sacred texts were the writings of Carlos Casteneda. How about L. Ron Hubbard's Dianetics? The sky's the limit!

The obvious logical conclusion to this scenario is that if North Carolina loses, the next item on the ACLU agenda would be to remove the Bible from the courtrooms. After all separation of church and state, right?
Denying the use of other religious texts would violate the Constitution by favoring Christianity over other religions, the American Civil Liberties Union of North Carolina said in its lawsuit.
