Hitler Was a Christian

This article originally appeared on EvilBible.com.

The Holocaust was caused by Christian fundamentalism

History is currently being distorted by the millions of Christians who lie to have us believe that the Holocaust was not a Christian deed. Through subterfuge and concealment, many of today’s Church leaders and faithful Christians have camouflaged the Christianity of Adolf Hitler and have attempted to mark him an atheist, a pagan cult worshiper, or a false Christian in order to place his misdeeds on those without Jesus. However, from the earliest formation of the Nazi party and throughout the period of conquest and growth, Hitler expressed his Christian support to the German citizenry and soldiers. Those who would make Hitler an atheist should turn their eyes to history books before they address their pews and chat rooms.

Considering that Christianity has thus far been incapable of producing an unbiased, educated follower which speaks the truth, (I haven’t encountered any), I have been forced to dispel the myth by writing this essay. It is not until I bring up his speeches, my personal info on the Nazi regime and their tactics that a Christian will begin to question what their clergy told them. (I am the offspring of a German soldier. My Opa served under Hitler in WW2 and my father was raised during the time of the Nazi regime. This is important information to take into consideration for I am privy to some info that most Americans do not know. It is common for American media and education institutions to lie to their citizens concerning Nazi Germany.) So, in presenting this information I must break it into four parts: 1) Facts about Hitler and his involvement with the Church. 2) How the Church was the catalyst for anti-Semitism. 3) Facts concerning how the Nazi regime drilled these beliefs into Germanic society. 4) Quotes Hitler made which prove he had a disdain for atheism/occultism, upheld his Christian faith, and hated Jews due to his Christianity.

Hitler’s involvement with the Church

a) Hitler was baptized as Roman Catholic during infancy in Austria.

b) As Hitler approached boyhood he attended a monastery school. (On his way to school young Adolf daily observed a stone arch which was carved with the monastery’s coat of arms bearing a swastika.)

c) Hitler was a communicant and an altar boy in the Catholic Church.

d) As a young man he was confirmed as a “soldier of Christ.” His most ardent goal at the time was to become a priest. Hitler writes of his love for the church and clergy: “I had excellent opportunity to intoxicate myself with the solemn splendor of the brilliant church festivals. As was only natural, the abbot seemed to me, as the village priest had once seemed to my father, the highest and most desirable ideal.” —Adolf Hitler (Mein Kampf)

e) Hitler was NEVER excommunicated nor condemned by his church. Matter of fact the Church felt he was JUST and “avenging for God” in attacking the Jews for they deemed the Semites the killers of Jesus.

f) Hitler, Franco and Mussolini were given VETO power over whom the pope could appoint as a bishop in Germany, Spain and Italy. In turn they surtaxed the Catholics and gave the money to the Vatican. Hitler wrote a speech in which he talks about this alliance, this is an excerpt: “The fact that the Vatican is concluding a treaty with the new Germany means the acknowledgment of the National Socialist state by the Catholic Church. This treaty shows the whole world clearly and unequivocally that the assertion that National Socialism [Nazism] is hostile to religion is a lie.” —Adolf Hitler, 22 July 1933, writing to the Nazi Party

g) Hitler worked CLOSELY with Pope Pius in converting Germanic society and supporting the church. The Church absorbed Nazi ideals and preached them as part of their sermons in turn Hitler placed Catholic teachings in public education. This photo depicts Hitler with Archbishop Cesare Orsenigo, the papal nuncio in Berlin. It was taken On April 20, 1939, when Orsenigo celebrated Hitler’s birthday. The celebrations were initiated by Pacelli (Pope Pius XII) and became a tradition.

Cesare Orsenigo, the Vatican’s representative to Nazi Germany, meets with Adolf Hitler and Joachim von Ribbentrop in early 1939. He is accused of advocating for ‘compromise and conciliation’ with the Nazis.

Each April 20, Cardinal Bertram of Berlin was to send “warmest congratulations to the Fuhrer in the name of the bishops and the dioceses in Germany with “fervent prayers which the Catholics of Germany are sending to heaven on their altars.” (If you would like to know more about the secret dealings of Hitler and the Pope I recommend you get a book titled: Hitler’s Pope: The Secret History of Pius XII, by John Cornwell)

h) Due to Hitler’s involvement with the Church he began enacting doctrines of the Church as law. He outlawed all abortion, raged a death war on all homosexuals, and demanded corporal punishment in schools and home. Many times Hitler addressed the church and promised that Germany would implement its teachings: “The National Socialist State professes its allegiance to positive Christianity. It will be its honest endeavor to protect both the great Christian Confessions in their rights, to secure them from interference with their doctrines (Lehren), and in their duties to constitute a harmony with the views and the exigencies of the State of today.” —Adolf Hitler, on 26 June 1934, to Catholic bishops to assure them that he would take action against the new pagan propaganda “Providence has caused me to be Catholic, and I know therefore how to handle this Church.” —Adolf Hitler, reportedly to have said in Berlin in 1936 on the enmity of the Catholic Church to National Socialism

How Christianity was the catalyst of the Holocaust

Hitler’s anti-Semitism grew out of his Christian education. Austria and Germany were majorly Christian during his time and they held the belief that Jews were an inferior status to Aryan Christians. The Christians blamed the Jews for the killing of Jesus. Jewish hatred did not actually spring from Hitler, it came from the preaching of Catholic priests and Protestant ministers throughout Germany for hundreds of years. The Protestant leader, Martin Luther, himself, held a livid hatred for Jews and their Jewish religion. In his book, “On the Jews and their Lies,” Luther set the standard for Jewish hatred in Protestant Germany up until World War 2. Hitler expressed a great admiration for Martin Luther constantly quoting his works and beliefs.

Now, you must remember before Hitler rose to Chancellor of Germany the country was in a deep economic depression due to the Versailles treaty. The Versailles treaty demanded that Germans made financial reparations for the previous war and Germany simply was not self sufficient enough in order to pay the debt. Hitler was the leader that raised Germany out of the depression and brought them back to a world recognized power. Due to his annulment of the financial woes of the Germanic people he became their redeemer and they anointed him as the leader of the German Reich Christian Church in 1933. This placed him in power of the German Christian Socialist movement which legislates their political and religious agendas. It united all denominations, mainly the Protestant/Catholic and Lutheran people to instill faith in a national Christianity.

How the Nazi Regime converted the people

a) In the 1920s, Hitler’s German Workers’ Party (pre Nazi term) adopted a “Programme” with twenty-five points (the Nazi version of a constitution). In point twenty-four, their intent clearly demonstrates, from the very beginning, their stand in favor of a “positive” Christianity: “We demand liberty for all religious denominations in the State, so far as they are not a danger to it and do not militate against the morality and moral sense of the German race. The Party, as such, stands for positive Christianity, but does not bind itself in the matter of creed to any particular confession…”

b) The Nazi regime started a youth movement which preached its agenda to impressionable children. Hitler backed up the notion that all people need faith and religious education: “By helping to raise man above the level of bestial vegetation, faith contributes in reality to the securing and safeguarding of his existence. Take away from present-day mankind its education-based, religious- dogmatic principles — or, practically speaking, ethical-moral principles — by abolishing this religious education, but without replacing it by an equivalent, and the result will be a grave shock to the foundations of their existence.” —Adolf Hitler (Mein Kampf)

c) The Nazi regime began to control schools insisting that Christianity was taught.

d) The Nazi regime included anti-Semitic Christian writings in textbooks and they were not removed from Christian doctrines until 1961.

e) The Nazi regime having full blown power over the people began to forcibly convert all its military.

f) The Nazi regime forced the German soldiers to wear religious symbols such as the swastika and they placed religious sayings on military gear. An example here is this German army belt buckle (I believe my Grandfather had one) which reads Gott Mit Uns. For those of you who do not speak German it is translated as “God With Us”.

Top: A German soldier in winter uniform on motorcycle. Bottom: The inscription on the German soldier’s belt buckle translates “God With Us”.

g) The German troops were often forced to get sprinkled with holy water and listen to a sermon by a Catholic priest before going out on a maneuver.

h) The Nazis created a secret service called the “SS Reich” that would act as spies on the dealings of other citizens. If anyone was suspected of heresy (Going not only against the Socialist party but CHURCH DOCTRINE) they would be prosecuted.

Quotes from Hitler

Hitler’s speeches and proclamations, even more clearly, reveal his faith and feelings toward a Christianized Germany. Nazism presents an embarrassment to Christianity and demonstrates the danger of their faith so they try to pin him on other theistic views. The following words from Hitler show his disdain for atheism, and pagan cults, and reveal the strength of his Christian feelings:

“National Socialism is not a cult-movement — a movement for worship; it is exclusively a ‘volkic’ political doctrine based upon racial principles. In its purpose there is no mystic cult, only the care and leadership of a people defined by a common blood-relationship… We will not allow mystically-minded occult folk with a passion for exploring the secrets of the world beyond to steal into our Movement. Such folk are not National Socialists, but something else — in any case something which has nothing to do with us. At the head of our programme there stand no secret surmisings but clear-cut perception and straightforward profession of belief. But since we set as the central point of this perception and of this profession of belief the maintenance and hence the security for the future of a being formed by God, we thus serve the maintenance of a divine work and fulfill a divine will — not in the secret twilight of a new house of worship, but openly before the face of the Lord… Our worship is exclusively the cultivation of the natural, and for that reason, because natural, therefore God-willed. Our humility is the unconditional submission before the divine laws of existence so far as they are known to us men.” —Adolf Hitler, in Nuremberg on 6 Sept 1938. [Christians have always accused Hitler of believing in pagan cult mythology. What is written here clearly expresses his stand against cults.]

“We were convinced that the people needs and requires this faith. We have therefore undertaken the fight against the atheistic movement, and that not merely with a few theoretical declarations: we have stamped it out.” —Adolf Hitler, in a speech in Berlin on 24 Oct. 1933 [This statement clearly refutes modern Christians who claim Hitler as favoring atheism. Hitler wanted to form a society in which ALL people worshiped Jesus and considered any questioning of such to be heresy. The Holocaust was like a modern inquisition, killing all who did not accept Jesus. Though more Jews were killed then any other it should be noted that MANY ARYAN pagans and atheists were murdered for their non-belief in Christ.]

Here Hitler uses the Bible and his Christianity in order to attack the Jews and uphold his anti-Semitism:

“My feelings as a Christian points me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter. It points me to the man who once in loneliness, surrounded by a few followers, recognized these Jews for what they were and summoned men to fight against them and who, God’s truth! was greatest not as a sufferer but as a fighter. In boundless love as a Christian and as a man I read through the passage which tells us how the Lord at last rose in His might and seized the scourge to drive out of the Temple the brood of vipers and adders. How terrific was His fight for the world against the Jewish poison. To-day, after two thousand years, with deepest emotion I recognize more profoundly than ever before the fact that it was for this that He had to shed His blood upon the Cross. As a Christian I have no duty to allow my self to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice… And if there is anything which could demonstrate that we are acting rightly it is the distress that daily grows. For as a Christian I have also a duty to my own people.” —Adolf Hitler, in a speech on 12 April 1922 (Norman H. Baynes, ed. The Speeches of Adolf Hitler, April 1922-August 1939, Vol. 1 of 2, pp. 19-20, Oxford University Press, 1942)

“Christianity could not content itself with building up its own altar; it was absolutely forced to undertake the destruction of the heathen altars. Only from this fanatical intolerance could its apodictic faith take form; this intolerance is, in fact, its absolute presupposition.” —Adolf Hitler Mein Kampf (It is quite obvious here that Hitler is referring to destructing the Judaism alters on which Christianity was founded.)

“The personification of the devil as the symbol of all evil assumes the living shape of the Jew.” —Hitler Mein Kampf (The idea of the devil and the Jew came out of medieval anti-Jewish beliefs based on interpretations from the Bible. Martin Luther, and teachers after him, continued this “tradition” up until the 20th century.)

“With satanic joy in his face, the black-haired Jewish youth lurks in wait for the unsuspecting girl whom he defiles with his blood, thus stealing her from her people.” —Adolf Hitler Mein Kampf (It is common in war for one race to rape another so that they can “defile” the race and assimilate their own. Hitler speaks about this very tactic here.)

“The best characterization is provided by the product of this religious education, the Jew himself. His life is only of this world, and his spirit is inwardly as alien to true Christianity as his nature two thousand years previous was to the great founder of the new doctrine. Of course, the latter made no secret of his attitude toward the Jewish people, and when necessary he even took the whip to drive from the temple of the Lord this adversary of all humanity, who then as always saw in religion nothing but an instrument for his business existence. In return, Christ was nailed to the cross, while our present- day party Christians debase themselves to begging for Jewish votes at elections and later try to arrange political swindles with atheistic Jewish parties — and this against their own nation.” —Adolf Hitler (Mein Kampf)

“…the fall of man in paradise has always been followed by his expulsion.” —Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf (See Genesis Chapter 3 where humankind is cast from Eden for their sins. Hitler compares this to the need to exterminate the Jews for their sin against Christ.)

“Hence today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord.” —Adolf Hitler (Mein Kampf)

“The anti-Semitism of the new movement [Christian Social movement] was based on religious ideas instead of racial knowledge.” —Adolf Hitler Mein Kampf (This quote is very interesting for it disperses the idea that Hitler raged war due to being an Aryan supremacist. He states quite clearly that he has a problem with Jews for their belief not race. That is why many German Jews died in WW2 regardless of their Aryan nationality.)

“Only in the steady and constant application of force lies the very first prerequisite for success. This persistence, however, can always and only arise from a definite spiritual conviction. Any violence which does not spring from a firm, spiritual base, will be wavering and uncertain.” —Adolf Hitler Mein Kampf (Here Hitler is admitting that his war against the Jews were so successful because of his strong Christian Spirituality.)

Quotes from Other Nazis about Hitler and Religion:

“Around 1937, when Hitler heard that at the instigation of the party and the SS vast numbers of his followers had left the church because it was obstinately opposing his plans, he nevertheless ordered his chief associates, above all Goering and Gobbels, to remain members of the church. He too would remain a member of the Catholic Church, he said, although he had no real attachment to it. And in fact he remained in the church until his suicide.” (Inside the Third Reich by Albert Speer page 95-96)

  1. AS a Christian, I do not deny this. I really don’t wish to say anything else.

    I only ask that you show us the same courtesy you ask we show you– please do not judge all of us by the actions of Hitler.

    • why not? most of you want to do the same things, insert religious dogma over the constitution and make us all live by the bible's insane rules. Even if you don't, supporting the bible is supporting such bullshit and making it so hard for us normal folks

      • Actually, most Christians want none of that. It’s your hatred speaking. Calm down, have a cuppa, think about your own shortcomings too. All religion is bad, but it doesn’t extend to most followers.

    • Hitler was only one man. What we question is the Papacy and its motives. It silently backed Hitler with the same resolve it showed while attacking and killing Muslims. Cults like Christianity and Muslims always resort to violence in order to acquire followers.

  2. >”I only ask that you show us the same courtesy you ask we show you– please do not judge all of us by the actions of Hitler.”

    how many hitlers do you have to see before you stop enabling & supporting their crimes?

    it is disingenuous of you to beg for leniency considering how you come here & insult us with your thinly disguised advertising for your fascist corporation. if you had any courtesy whatsoever the absolute least you could do is STFU, but even that is too much to ask of the authoritarian mindset whose main tactics are mendacity & subterfuge

  3. Pragmatism as practiced had to fool and corrupt a good part of the church. Hitler was a pragmatist but not a Christian. We see the pragmatism of today under Hillary and Republicans much the same and true Catholics standing up to them. yes most don't and are corrupted.

  4. With all due respect, you have been duped and brainwashed. Hitler and the Nazis were enthralled with propaganda and studied intensively the tactics of Edward Bernays, nephew of Freud, who actually wrote the book titled ‘propaganda’. See a little about him here:
    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=druOAHVKHCQ and
    http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/psywar/

    The Nuremburg trials documented extensively that the Nazis used propaganda to deceive Christians while long before World War II, they actually had a detailed plan to destroy Christianity.

    And in the first place, they were rebelling against Bible principles that pioneered equality for all races before any other worldview even thought of that such as in Numbers 15:15, Matt 23:8, Galatians 3:28 and others.

    Read this article by the NY Times for starters…and remember that all throughout history…whenever nations reject God’s ways, they lose freedom in one way or another. At the Nazi time it was a holocaust. In the present,billions are losing freedom to the 1% and plutocracy. See my site here on that.

    Here is the NYTimes article.
    —–
    One of the leading United States investigators at Nuremberg, Gen. William J. Donovan — Wild Bill Donovan of the O.S.S., the C.I.A.’s precursor — collected and cataloged trial evidence in 148 bound volumes of personal papers that were stored after his death in 1959 at Cornell University. In 1999, Julie Seltzer Mandel, a law student from Rutgers University whose grandmother survived the Auschwitz death camp, read them. Under the Nuremberg Project, a collaboration between Rutgers and Cornell, she has edited the collection for publication on the Internet.

    The first installment, published last week on the Web site of the Rutgers Journal of Law and Religion (www.camlaw.rutgers.edu/publications/law-religion), includes a 108-page outline prepared by O.S.S. investigators to aid Nuremberg prosecutors. The outline, ”The Persecution of the Christian Churches,” summarizes the Nazi plan to subvert and destroy German Christianity, which it calls ”an integral part of the National Socialist scheme of world conquest.”

    Verbatim excerpts from the outline would require extensive explanations. Instead, the outline is summarized below. JOE SHARKEY

    In the 1920’s, as they battled for power, the Nazis realized that the churches in overwhelmingly Christian Germany needed to be neutralized before they would get anywhere. Two-thirds of German Christians were Protestants, belonging to one of 28 regional factions of the German Evangelical Church. Most of the rest were Roman Catholics. On one level, the Nazis saw an advantage. In tumultuous post-World War I Germany, the Christian churches ”had long been associated with conservative ways of thought, which meant that they tended to agree with the National Socialists in their authoritarianism, their attacks on Socialism and Communism, and in their campaign against the Versailles treaty” that had ended World War I with a bitterly resentful Germany.

    But there was a dilemma for Hitler. While conservatives, the Christian churches ”could not be reconciled with the principle of racism, with a foreign policy of unlimited aggressive warfare, or with a domestic policy involving the complete subservience of Church to State.” Given that these were the fundamental underpinnings of the Nazi regime, ”conflict was inevitable,” the summary states. It came, as Nazi power surged in the late 1920’s toward national domination in the early 30’s.

    According to Baldur von Schirach, the Nazi leader of the German youth corps that would later be known as the Hitler Youth, ”the destruction of Christianity was explicitly recognized as a purpose of the National Socialist movement” from the beginning, though ”considerations of expedience made it impossible” for the movement to adopt this radical stance officially until it had consolidated power, the outline says.

    Attracted by the strategic value inherent in the churches’ ”historic mission of conservative social discipline,” the Nazis simply lied and made deals with the churches while planning a ”slow and cautious policy of gradual encroachment” to eliminate Christianity.

    The prosecution investigators describe this as a criminal conspiracy. ”This general plan had been established even before the rise of the Nazis to power,” the outline says. ”It apparently came out of discussions among an inner circle” comprised of Hitler himself, other top Nazi leaders including the propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels, and a collection of party enforcers and veteran beer-hall agitators.

    …Of course, the churches stayed in Hitler’s good graces for only as long as the Nazis considered their cooperation expedient. Soon after Hitler assumed dictatorial powers, ”relations between the Nazi state and the church became progressively worse,” the outline says. The Nazis ”took advantage of their subsequently increasing strength to violate every one of the Concordat’s provisions.”

    In 1937, Pope Pius XI denounced Nazi treachery in an encyclical that accused Hitler of ”a war of extermination” against the church. The battle had been joined on some fronts. Nazi street mobs, often in the company of the Gestapo, routinely stormed offices in Protestant and Catholic churches where clergymen were seen as lax in their support of the regime.

    The dissident pastor Martin Niemoller spoke openly now against state control of the Protestant churches. He was arrested and imprisoned in 1937 for using his pulpit for ”underhand attacks on state and party.” When a judge acquitted him, ”on leaving court he was arrested by the Gestapo and sent to a concentration camp where he remained until the end of the war,” says the outline.

    Still, in a society where the entire Jewish population was being automatically condemned without public protest, care was taken to manipulate public perceptions about clergymen who fell into Nazi disfavor. ”The Catholic Church need not imagine that we are going to create martyrs,” Robert Wagner, the Nazi Gauleiter of Baden, said in a speech, according to the O.S.S. study. ”We shall not give the church that satisfaction. She shall have not martyrs, but criminals.”

    But once they had total power and set off to launch a world war, the Nazis made no secret of what lay in store for Christian clergymen who expressed dissent.

    In Munich, Nazi street gangs and a Gestapo squad attacked the residence of the Roman Catholic cardinal. ”A hail of stones was directed against the windows, while the men shouted, ‘Take the rotten traitor to Dachau!’ ” the outline says, adding: ”After 1937, German Catholic bishops gave up all attempts to print” their pastoral letters publicly and instead ”had them merely read from the pulpits.”

    Then the letters themselves were confiscated.

    ”In many churches, the confiscation took place during Mass by the police snatching the letter out of the hands of the priests as they were in the act of reading it.”

    Later the same year, dissident Protestant churches joined in a manifesto protesting Nazi tactics. In response, the Nazis arrested 700 Protestant pastors.

    Objectionable statements made by the clergy would no longer be prosecuted in the courts, the Nazis said. Statements ”injurious to the State would be ruthlessly punished by ‘protective custody,’ that is, the concentration camp,” the outline says.

    Correction: January 20, 2002, Sunday An article last Sunday that summarized the contents of newly released documents from the Nuremberg trials that outlined the Nazi plan to destroy German Christianity referred incorrectly to a 1929 treaty between Mussolini’s fascist regime and the Catholic Church in Italy. It was the Lateran Treaty, not Lantern.

  5. This article repeats the myth that WWI reparations were onerous, unfair and led to the rise of Nazism. This is factually false.

    Germany’s war reparations were NOT large. They were normal. The payments were cut in HALF. Germany STOPPED paying them anyway and then spent far more on military escalation for war.

    The actual causes of German fascism were far more complex that a simple debt for damage done. After his failed coup release in 1924, “Hitler gained popular support by attacking the Treaty of Versailles and promoting Pan-Germanism, antisemitism, and anti-communism with charismatic oratory and Nazi propaganda…Nazism arose from pan-Germanism, the Völkisch German nationalist movement and the anti-communist Freikorps after World War I… Hitler’s aggressive foreign policy is considered to be the PRIMARY cause of the outbreak of World War II in Europe.”

    This mistaken attitude is the direct result of blatant Nazi propaganda, which has entered our nomenclature. Nazis promoted this complaint after WW 1 to further their party dreams of rebuilding German military might.

    The original penalty (almost one trillion dollars in today’s currency), was cut in half in 1924 and 1929, then spread out over 59 years. Yet with the collapse of their economy in 1931, Hitler’s Nazis stopped paying reparations altogether.

    “Germany paid roughly 20 billion gold marks worth of reparations between 1921 and 1932, roughly 2.4 percent of Germany’s national income during that period. As Mantoux pointed out, immediately after repudiating the reparations, the new Nazi government began a re-armament program which consumed a significantly larger percentage of national income than reparations ever had.”

    It is not unusual for the aggressive, and yet losing, side in a war to pay reparations. It is strange for the attacked and yet successful victors to adopt the aggressor’s excuse for provocation as reasonable and rational. Hitler, the Nazi Party and Germany planned to take over Europe. Paying for the previous failed attempt was NOT the cause for making a second one.

    • While that sounds very nice quoting from a text book real life in Germany during was very bad. My grandfather told stories of living on acorns and buying coats with newspaper for lining. When the French marched into the Rhonne to collect payments it caused such a ruckus due to starving overworked people feelings of indigence. You also totally digressed from the article's message. The Roman Catholic Church was the major instrument in aiding and abetting Nazism.

  6. This is nonsense. His motives were scientific racism. You could not convert. Jews were considered a race, not a religion. In fact, in Nazism, Christianity was viewed as weak. If you are going to support radical atheism, don’t lie like a radical Christian: See the propaganda poster below. The caption translates to: They belong to the church, she belongs to Satan. Both are lost to the German race.”–Der Stürmer, July 1936 (Issue #20)
    https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/images/Holocaust/ds6a.jpg

  7. Important items not mentioned was the "Ratline" that got the Nazi's out of Europe after the WW2. The Catholic Church and the CIA(Operation Paperclip) were instrumental in accomplishing this.

  8. More Leftist propaganda. Lemme break this down for you RUBES on here:

    "Judaism has inflamed his hatred with its doctrine of the one God who affects man's entire life with his laws and commandments," Goerdeler confided to his Political Testament, which he deposited in New York before war broke out.

    "Next, his hatred will turn on the Christian religion. Humility and charity render him rabid … Hitler puts himself in the place of Christ."

    This flies of course in the face of what columnist Joel Miller of WorldNetDaily.com, an internet publication, calls the popular myth that the persecution of the Jews was fundamentally a Christian enterprise.

    Now, Julie Seltzer Mandel, a Rutgers University law student, published U.S. intelligence papers detailing the Nazi plan to destroy Christianity.

    Sounding almost verbatim like Carl Goerdeler, the summary of these papers call this plan "an integral part of the National Socialist scheme of world conquest."

  9. Here's MORE:

    "In a special Christian Broadcasting Network program, Comfort cites the head of Hitler Youth, Boldur von Schirach, who said, “Destruction of Christianity was explicitly recognized as a purpose of the National Socialist Movement.”"

  10. Hmm. Sounds like all of the “open-minded” and “tolerant” people in here happen to also have major Christophobia. And to think I was almost fooled when you all told me you stood for acceptance and for not judging other people’s beliefs….

  11. How was he a christian? He did not believe in Christ, he had a lot of pagan beliefs (he believed in kobolds) and based its actions on them. His main actions had its source in Darwinism which goes against christianity. He talk about christianity because most Europe was christians by if you look at the quotes they are from the perspective of a non-believer talking to believing christians. The phrases are formulated like this: If x christian belief were true y. He was a mystic. And he uses the same accusations on christianity darwinists use.

  12. Hitler was a Catholic, but it is arguable as to his motives. The church did help him in the beginning, but did try to separate itself from him later.
    No doubt that christian teachings influenced both the ideology and methodology of the NAZI party – but religion wasn’t the be all and end all – and highly debateable whether he had positive or negative motives toward the church, particularly in the later days of the third reich.

    I’m an atheist, but I’m an historian first. I try not to allow religion to over- influence my understanding.
