My religious beliefs are to not swear over anything, or to take oaths, this is directly from the Bible but I don't remember where at, though I remember it and that's what's important. My religious obligations require me to only say "yes" or "no" and that oaths aren't for people like me. There's many reasons for that. An oath doesn't insure that it will be obeyed or that there is honesty, an oath leaves people in a place where they lie or are do not fulfill some oath, not this one in particular, but if you don't fulfill your oath it's a sin... Bible wisdom: no oaths, supposed to say only "yes" or "no." I say no oaths. It accomplishes nothing, to be honest. It doesn't make the left anymore loyal to the state than they are, and it doesn't change anything, just singles people out and makes a problem where there doesn't need to be one and forces people into sin by making an oath. Only negatives, no benefits. Ensures no loyalty. Words are only words, though binding in the sight of God, for humans words are just words.
