    "Downloading a Bible app on an iPad or smartphone is incredibly convenient. But should digital Bibles be allowed at swearing-in ceremonies?"

    Nice variation of the "Begging the Question" fallacy, Deseret News. You imply with your question that, digital or not, swearing on the Bible is a requirement. Considering that there's no constitutional requirement for swearing on a Bible or any other text, the answer to your question should be obvious.

    More importantly to me, are the digital MSDS sheets, which I carry as .pdf documents on my phone, sufficient to meet various occupational health and safety regulations state to state? So far, apparently yes.

    In most cases, a paycheck would be a more accurate symbol too use.
