Affirmation – A promise to tell the truth in court.Used by people who do not wish to swear on the
Bible or other religious book.
Oath – A promise to tell the truth by swearing on a religious book that is important to the person making the promise.
which would you choose?? i would choose affirmation as i see it wrong swearing on the Bible, but what i dont understand is why so many christians (coptic too) are taking the oath........i dont get it............both the affirmation and oath mean nothing to non christians.......jus my thorts........
