Ok I know you don’t have swear on the bible. Which is good because that ain’t gonna happen. Even if I believed in said book I’ve read enough of it to know it says don’t swear by anything, just say Yeah or Neah and stand by it. It would be nice if the folks who DO believe in this book would spend less time fondeling it or thumping it and more time reading it. But I digress.
My real question is am I oblgied to raise my right hand? I mean I’m not opposied to the gesture. Makes it more formal. But I’m left handed. Indeed I’m about as sinister as they come. So can’t I just raise my dominant hand?
Am a called upon to raise my OTHER hand? Is this a legal matter? Cuz when I testfied agianst that mugger they said please raise your right hand. And I did. But I felt… so oppressed. As a left sided American. Did I have to?
