“If you can remove court charges by swearing an oath in a religious building of worship, or swearing by a holy book, there will be no criminals in jail.” ~ Robren

Some political and religious leaders will blatantly swear an oath by their holy book or in a religious building, using the logical fallacy that swearing by a holy book implies testifying the truth. You can fool some people all the time, but you can’t fool all people all the time.

Reichswehr soldiers swear the Hitler oath in 1934, with hands raised in the traditional schwurhand gesture.

The Hitler Oath – also referred as the Soldier’s Oath – refers to the oaths of allegiance sworn by the officers and soldiers of the German Armed Forces and civil servants of Nazi Germany between the years 1934 and 1945. The oath pledged personal loyalty to Adolf Hitler in place of loyalty to the constitution of the country. Historians view the personal oath of the Third Reich as an important psychological element to obey orders for committing war crimes, atrocities, and genocide.

During the Nuremberg trials, many German officers unsuccessfully attempted to use the oath as a defense against charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity.
