The problem with reqiring religious oaths before taking the stand is obvious. If you are Muslim, an oath on the Bible holds no value. The same applies to those who are Buddist, Hindu, or even aetheist. If you are anything but Muslim, an oath on the Koran has no value. The emphasis on honesty for the sake of honesty must prevail in the court system. Laws are already in place to deal with those who would lie on the witness stand. A simple oath to tell the truth should be all that is required.
