Proof positive that a Bible oath means absolutely nothing

From the AP (via the New York Times)

As dignitaries watched under a red-carpeted tent at the State House complex, [Robert] Mugabe held a Bible and stood before a red-robed, white-wigged judge to swear to uphold his nation's laws ''so help me God.''
Meanwhile, Mugabe's thugs have been busy raping women who opposed his re-election, or, rather, his stealing of another election. His thugs have also been working towards Mugabe's "election" by attempting to kill the child of an opposition party member (among other acts of systematic violence) by throwing the 11 month old against a concrete floor.

Maybe Mugabe's thugs had Bible Psalm 137:9 in mind: "Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones."
