Hitler was Christian by FlacidPenis Hitler was Christian by FlacidPenis
"BUT HITLUR WUZ ATHEEST"

The source: [link]

Hitler was raised Catholic, regularly invoked Jesus in his speeches and spoke often of his and the German peoples' "manifest destiny", which isn't very atheist at all. He also thought that he was fighting for God's work by killing Jews, and although he also persecuted the Catholic Church and some Prostestant churches later on, he never ceaed being a theist, in fact, he was actually and always Catholic and was never excommunicated from the Catholic Church and the book "Mein Kampf" was not placed on the Church's index of forbidden books. And yes, the Catholic Church supported Nazis and the killing of the Jews.

And regarding atheism, Hitler opposed it in a 1933 speech in Berlin: "We were convinced that the people need and require 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.”

And due to Hitler's involvement with the Church, he began enacting doctrines of the Church as law. He outlawed all abortion (citation needed?), raged a death war on all homosexuals, and demanded corporal punishment in schools and home, and many times Hitler addressed the church and promised that Germany would implement its teaching: “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

Hitler was actually religious, and yes, the Catholic church is racist, the more you know.

TL;DR: Hitler was a religious dick.

I copy and pasted this article from Wikipedia (don't believe me look it up Adolf Hitler on their site and go to his religious views), it disagrees with you.

Hitler was born to a practising Catholic mother and an anticlerical father, but after leaving home Hitler never again attended Mass or received the sacraments.[358][359][360] Speer states that Hitler made harsh pronouncements against the church to his political associates and though he never officially left it, he had no attachment to it.[361] He adds that Hitler felt that in the absence of the church the faithful would turn to mysticism, which he considered a step backwards.[361] According to Speer, Hitler believed that either Japanese religious beliefs or Islam would have been a more suitable religion for the Germans than Christianity, with its "meekness and flabbiness".[362] Historian John S. Conway states that Hitler was fundamentally opposed to the Christian churches.[363] According to Bullock, Hitler did not believe in God, was anticlerical, and held Christian ethics in contempt because they contravened his preferred view of "survival of the fittest".[364] He favoured aspects of Protestantism that suited his own views, and adopted some elements of the Catholic Church's hierarchical organisation, liturgy, and phraseology in his politics.[365]

Hitler viewed the church as an important politically conservative influence on society,[366] and he adopted a strategic relationship with it that "suited his immediate political purposes".[363] In public, Hitler often praised Christian heritage and German Christian culture, though professing a belief in an "Aryan Jesus", one who fought against the Jews.[367] Any pro-Christian public rhetoric was at variance with his personal beliefs, which described Christianity as "absurdity"[368] and nonsense founded on lies.[369]

According to a U.S. Office of Strategic Services report, "The Nazi Master Plan", Hitler planned to destroy the influence of Christian churches within the Reich.[370][371] His eventual goal was the total elimination of Christianity.[372] This goal informed Hitler's movement very early on, but he saw it as inexpedient to express this extreme position publicly.[373] According to Bullock, Hitler wanted to wait until after the war before executing this plan.[374]

Speer wrote that Hitler had a negative view of Himmler's and Alfred Rosenberg's mystical notions and Himmler's attempt to mythologise the SS. Hitler was more pragmatic, and his ambitions centred on more practical concerns.[375][376]

Hitler may or may not have been a Christian. But one thing is certain for sure: He said all of what you cited in your description just to sway the German masses, who were predominantly Christians, to his side, to get their political support. Like how the Japanese politicians manipulated their Shinto religion to boost up their ultra-nationalistic cause. In other words, he was just like any other malicious, crafty politicians that have been around lying to us for their consolidation of power throughout history. 

And what the heck are you talking about? The Catholic Church as a whole was NEVER allied with the Nazis! I am no Catholic, but even I know this is an utter bullshit lie. When Italy was under control of Mussolini's fascists, Hitler was gearing up to smash Europe into a billion pieces and one of the worst horrors ever perpetrated was just around the corner. Pius XII took one look at the unfolding insanity and said "not on my watch" like a true badass he was. Although he started cautiously, by early 1940, he was mediating negotiations between British Intelligence and some pissed-off German high brass hoping to assassinate Hitler. He passed on sensitive coded information for the allies and, in 1942, became one of the few people in Europe to speak out against Hitler, using a radio address to explictly condemn the Nazi's racial cleansing program: "[The Nazis]...are in reality only miserable plagarists who dress old errors with new tinsel. It does not make any difference whether they flock to the banners of social revolution, whether they flock to the banners of social revolution, whether they are guided by a false concept of the world and of life, or whether they are possessed by the superstition of a race and blood cult." Amidst all of the chaos he even awesomely, helped shelter and ship HUNDREDS of Jews out of German reach! Sadly, he also failed to speak out against the slaughter of Catholics in Poland and may have known about the Nazi extermination program long before he did anything about it. Nevertheless, you can never deny that he was the only continental European leader to openly tell Hitler to go fuck himself through his action.

On a completely random note, maybe it's just me, but... why the hell does everyone talk about Hitler and the Nazis when it comes to the topic of WWII?!! What about those fucking Japanese imperialists?! Did World War II only occur in fucking Europe?! Why don't I hear any stamp about the Japanese war crimes that should be known to everyone? And say whatever you want, but I can confidently say that the Japanese imperialists were much, MUCH worse than the Nazis in any way and for good reasons! This site has indeed been infested by the hordes of white/American weeaboos with a shallow, narrow mind and perspective of things.

Stalin was an atheist and he was so cruel to the people of the rural areas in Eastern Europe the Nazis were treated as liberators of all things.

But he wasn't a Christian, he was Catholic, so you're still labeling him wrong

-_-

a Catholic IS a Christian...

the Christian religion is divided into 2 main categories.
Protestants and Catholics.

Catholic christians follow the laws of the pope.
Protestant christians do not.

Catholics also pray to saints...

That is the main difference.

other than that... they both follow the footsteps of the main prophet - Jesus.

So there you have it:
both are Christians.

Hitler did grow up catholic but was not Christian. He believed strongly in German Paganisem. He pretended to be catholic for a while because most of Germany at the time was Cathlic.

Not true. Hitler's FAMILY was Catholic, just as most people from Austria. Hitler tried many religions in his life, never found "the right one" (umm... that pun wasn't intended...), exept that he was much into Hinduism, which influenced him a lot (the swastika - even though he pretended it was arune! -, and he was probably a Vegetarian)... He was barley faithful, even though wannabe spiritual. Christianity is Germany's main religion (apart from Judaism, of course) so Hitler tried to get Christians on his side. Plus, many noble and royal persons were on his side and they were ususally Christians. So yes, he was behind a huge "Christian" Nazi thing. Of course. But that as a tactic. Being a "Christian" was very important for getting followers in his time. 

Apart from that, you can say lots of bad things about the Roman Catholic church. But it is definitely NOT racist. In fact, most members are dark skinned *cough* And, of course, Jesus was actually jewish...

So,and even if he WAS a Christian. That would not make Christians Nazis. That wouldn't say ANYTHING against Christians or Christianity. So there is absolutely no sense in your stamp. It's nothing but an anti-religious trolling stamp. Apart from that, being a member of teh church won't make someone a Christian. he didn't have Christian qualities. He was a murderer, he was full of hate. He was definitely not a Christian in his heart.

But of course. Hitler wuz NOT atheeest... Of course not...


So, if you want to make a proper anti-religious stamp (if it's soooo imprtant for you....) come up with actual facts. And with LOGIC.

And his hate against homosexuals (I refuse to say "homophobia") did NOT come from his religion. It was just that he wanted people in a - for him - "perfect" way. Ad that was everything he wasn't. He killed dark people, disabled people, Jewish people, Polish people (even though Polish people are often blonde!), etc. because he was INSANE. And, well, because he was dark, probably Jewish (unknown...), short, sometimes fat/skinny/never fit, kind of disabled, had only one ball and because he was not really straight... He jsut wanted to kill all people that were a tiny bit like him. But I am not going to analyze Hitler. Just... it had NOTHING to do with religion.
