As a Jewish liberal atheist, I am always terrified by the links between AdoIf HitIer's nazism and traditionalist Christianity. Out of respect for the 6,000,000 who perished in the HoIocaust, we should face the reality that AdoIf HitIer loved Christ, as I prove with these quotes:

"Today Christians stand at the head of this country. I pledge that I never will tie myself to parties who want to destroy Christianity. We want to fill our culture again with the Christian spirit. We want to burn out all the poison of immorality which entered our life." - A.H.

"The National Government will regard it as its first and foremost duty to revive in the nation the spirit of unity and cooperation. It regards Christianity as the foundation of our national morality, and the family as the basis of national life." - A.H.

"Our government, being resolved to undertake the political and moral purification of our public life, is creating and securing the conditions necessary for a really profound revival of religious life." - A.H.

"Almighty God, bless our arms when the time comes; be just as thou hast always been; judge now whether we be deserving of freedom; Lord, bless our battle!" - A.H.

"In the ranks of the NationaI SociaIist movement, the most devout Protestant could sit beside the most devout Catholic, without coming into the slightest conflict with his religious convictions. Struggle against common enemy taught them to respect and esteem one another." - A.H.

"We have a sacred duty to stop talking superficially of God's will, and actually fulfill God's will, and not let God's will be desecrated. God's will gave men their form, essence and abilities. Anyone who destroys His work is declaring war on the Lord's creation." - A.H.

"It may be that today money has become the exclusive ruler of life, but the time will come when man will again bow down before God." - A.H.

"It would be best if our Christian church, instead of annoying Africans with missions which they neither desire nor understand, would kindly teach Europeans that if the parents are not healthy it is more pleasing to God to adopt an orphan than give birth to a sick child." - A.H.

"A folkish state must therefore begin by raising marriage from the level of a continuous defilement of the race, and give it the consecration of an institution which is called upon to produce images of the Lord and not monstrosities halfway between man and ape." - A.H.

"Anyone who dares to lay hands on the highest image of the Lord commits sacrilege against the benevolent creator of this miracle and contributes to the expulsion from paradise." - A.H.

"Christ took the whip to drive from the temple of the Lord this adversary of all humanity. In return, He was nailed to the Cross, while our present day party Christians debase themselves by arranging political swindles with atheistic JΠ΅ws." - A.H.

"But if out of smugness, or even cowardice, this battle is not fought to its end, then take a look at the peoples five hundred years from now. I think you will find but few images of God, unless you want to profane the Almighty." - A.H.

"Parallel to the training of the body a struggle against the poisoning of the soul must begin. Our whole public life is like a hothouse for sexual ideas and simulations. All manifestations of our rotting world must be cleansed and placed in the service of a moral idea." - A.H.

"We fight against syphilis and prostitution. The first prerequisite to combat these things is the facilitation of earlier marriage. Late marriage is a disgrace to humanity, an institution ill-suited to a being who regards himself as the image of God." - A.H.

"Even today I am not ashamed to say that, overpowered by stormy enthusiasm, I fell down on my knees and thanked Heaven from an overflowing heart for granting me the good fortune of being permitted to live at this time." - A.H.

"I am now as before a Catholic and will always remain so." - A.H.

"Catholics and Protestants are fighting with one another, while the enemy of Aryan humanity and all Christendom is laughing up his sleeve." - A.H.

"This human world of ours would be inconceivable without the practical existence of a religious belief." - A.H.

"What we have to fight for is the freedom and independence of the fatherland, so that our people may be enabled to fulfill the mission assigned to it by the Creator." - A.H.

"I believe today that my conduct is in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator." - A.H.

"Once again the songs of the fatherland roared to the heavens along the endless marching columns, and for the last time the Lord's grace smiled on His ungrateful children." - A.H.

Here's a longer quote, which clearly shows that HitIer was deeply moved by his Christian religion: twitter.com/ugroyp/status/…

"My feeling as a Christian points me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter. It points me to the Man who once in loneliness, surrounded only by a few followers, recognized these jΠ΅ws for what they were & summoned men to fight them, and who was greatest not as sufferer but as fighter

As a final note, let's not forget that HitIer's worldview could be interpreted simply as a continuation of the problematic 2000 years long history of Christian antisemitism. In another thread, I collected some quotes that prove it: twitter.com/ugroyp/status/…

"Well should the JΠ΅w mourn who, not believing in Christ, has assigned his soul to perdition. The JΠ΅ws have crucified the Son and rejected the Holy Ghost, and their souls are the abode of the devil." - St. John Chrysostom
