An act to alter such parts of the Declaration of Rights, the
Constitution and Form of Government as relate to the
administration
of Oaths in certain cases.
Sec. 1. Be it enacted by the General Assembly of Maryland, That
all persons professing the Christian religion, who hold it unlawful
to take an oath on any occasion, shall be allowed to make their
solemn affirmation, in the same manner that Quakers have heretofore
been allowed to affirm, which affirmation shall be of the same
avail as an oath to all intents and purposes whatever.
2. And be it enacted, That before any such person shall be
admitted
as a witness or juror in any court of justice in this state,
the court shall be satisfied, by competent testimony, that such person
is conscientiously scrupulous of taking an oath.
