We had a brief discussion of this in class, and I remember an article about this being posted a few months ago. I google'd and used the search bar but does anyone have the article I'm talking about ? It talks about atheists not being able to be a witness or be part of a jury in certain states of the USA.

thank you.

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

My English teacher wouldn't believe me when I mentioned it, and he asked me to bring forward a source or resource on the matter. Any of you still have that article ? It would be of immense help.

This took no more than 15 seconds. And for the record, the reason is horribly unconstitutional.

Because everybody wants jury duty.


Doing jury duty is irrelevant. The problem lies in the fact that the courts are completely disregarding the 1st amendment that states that the government will not show a favorite religion.

"the Name of God only is that by which men ought to swear."[2]

So if I said to a priest: "In the Name of God, fuck you!" would it be okay?

The laws are still there, but as explained at the bottom of the page they don't really apply anymore.

It is perfectly legal for an atheist to set on a jury....in a US court of law you dont have to swear on the bible you can "strongly affirm" if you dont give any credit to the bible. some lawyers might use one of their three strikes to remove someone but they can do that for any reason except for racism or sexism

Thank God, I've had more atheists shove their beliefs on me than other religious folk.

Everyone would turn in their guilty/not guilty ballots and his would be "God doesn't exist, I swear "
