But I will bet you my entire wealth that there are plenty of other religion’s holy books that are on that list. Oh, and there is not a printed list, because then those religious bigots on the Supreme Court would have to publish it. But don’t you dare use the holy books of Islamism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Sikhism, or any of the many others while on a jury, because those are most likely on the Supreme Courts “Banned List”. Atheists don’t need a holy book since we do not require dogma to guide us toward being a better person.
Freedom of religion. What a fucking lie! People in this country can’t even get Freedom From Religion. as demonstrated by this case.
