I'm fascinated by this case in North Carolina, where the ACLU has filed suit against the state. The ACLU argues that making a witness swear on the Bible discriminates against their religion.
Now here's the part that intrigues me. Rather than trying to get the Bible removed from the court which would be the normal ACLU tactic, they want the Koran brought in. They want us to believe they are reasonable people.
Well, let's suppose a Christian is on trial and the witness against him is a Satanist. Will the Christian have the right to object to that testimony since the oath taken by the devil worshipper is objectionable to the Christian? Exactly what happens when some nut case decides he wants to swear on the satanic bible? Will theologians become part of the defense ritual arguing over the validity of an oath sworn over pig entrails? What will atheists swear on, the ACLU manifesto? Will we subject our courtrooms to a steady stream of witches, druids, voodoo practioners and their unholy "holy" scriptures or will some common sense be allowed to rule? Don't count on it, it hasn't happened yet.
The ACLU has another purpose. If it means they are allowing the Bible to remain in the courtroom, they are up to something.
It may be that they are deliberately trying to cause confrontations among religions. It could also be that they are hoping to see bizarre "religious" antics in the courtroom so they can subject any and all spiritualism to ridicule. This will serve their plans better in the long haul, because in order for their atheistic, socialist agenda to succeed, they need to label devout Christians as Bible thumping Neanderthals and segregate them from the rest of society.
Keep watching to see how all of this turns out and eventually the ulterior motive of the ACLU will become apparent. In the meantime, to learn more, go to Stop the ACLU.
