Supreme Court Upholds Texas' Right to Lead the Way

Court Turns Down Challenge: "WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court has turned away a challenge from a death row inmate in Texas who claimed his constitutional rights were violated by jurors who consulted a Bible during deliberations.

Jurors reviewed a biblical passage relating that a murderer who used an iron object to kill 'shall surely be put to death.' They were deciding whether to impose a death sentence on Khristian Oliver for fatally shooting and bludgeoning his victim with the barrel of a gun."
