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.
Hitler was into spiritualism and paganism, consulted medians and psychics, and hated the Jews and others who the bible says Christians should love. He exalted "Aryans" based on old Euro/Hindu pagan ideas. As were the symbols of Nazism. the swastiki a Hindu/Norse pagan symbol and other pagan mystical Runes were everywhere in Nazi art, uniforms, rings etc.. Himler, Hitler's right hand, has overtly committed to occultism, Hitler shut down church orgs and church youth groups as competition to the party loyalty. Five days after becoming Chancellor in 1933, had the Catholic Youth League disbanded. The latter it was applied to other youth organizations too in order to free up young people to join the Hitler Youth. When the Church organized voluntary out-of-hours religious classes, the Nazi government responded by banning state-employed teachers from taking part.
A Hitler Youth marching song sung was: "We follow not Christ, but Horst Wessel, Away with incense and Holy Water, The Church can go hang for all we care, The Swastika brings salvation on Earth. "
Hitler had school children sing "HITLER is my savior" "Hitler is my Lord" the way we say the pledge of allegiance in the U.S. .www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1azHY…
Hitler produced propaganda film (played in every theater in Germany) that promoted euthanasia because kindness to the weak and infirm (Christianity) was a "transgression" against the laws of "natural selection" - evolution-. The Whole racial superiority issues was couched in "evolutionary science" and survival of the fittest. With a wrapper of pagan Teutonic Bloodline cult pride.
If you ignore all the above and still claim that Hitler was "a christian" you're just not being honest.
the fact is Hitler used Christianity politically until he didn't need it. But wrote that it would be overthrown by his weird stew of Aryan supremacist scientific paganism, Nazism.
It's just pop anti-thesit propaganda that promotes the idea that "Hitler was a Christian"
the more you know...
Oh, wait, didn't Stalin kill 50 million people? That's right! He was a militant atheist that killed religious people, among others.
Guess atheists are bad too. XP
The person who made this stamp is being somewhat hypocritical. I will admit that.
I am not sorry.
But valid point.
I'm a Christian, but I will never bring the topic of Adolf Hitler when it comes to a conversation about religion. Each day I spend on the internet, my shame of believing in Christ grows.
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. 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. He adds that Hitler felt that in the absence of the church the faithful would turn to mysticism, which he considered a step backwards. 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". Historian John S. Conway states that Hitler was fundamentally opposed to the Christian churches. 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". 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.
Hitler viewed the church as an important politically conservative influence on society, and he adopted a strategic relationship with it that "suited his immediate political purposes". 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. Any pro-Christian public rhetoric was at variance with his personal beliefs, which described Christianity as "absurdity" and nonsense founded on lies.
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. His eventual goal was the total elimination of Christianity. This goal informed Hitler's movement very early on, but he saw it as inexpedient to express this extreme position publicly. According to Bullock, Hitler wanted to wait until after the war before executing this plan.
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.
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.
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.
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.
And the Church isn't racist you ignorant bitch.
Hitler was really into the occult.
After Adolf was released from the defeated German Army following World War II, he joined the Satanic Secret Society, the Thule Society, directed at that time by Dietrich Eckart. Before Eckart ever met Adolf, he received a vision from his guiding spirit, telling him that he was going to meet the young man who was destined to become history's Antichrist.
Eckart was told to spare no effort in training Hitler in the deepest areas of the occult, preparing him for his historic role.
Hitler captured the minds and imaginations of a huge majority of Germans because he was demonically possessed. His power over the people was unparalleled, and will remain unparalleled until the real Antichrist arises.
His views on Christianity were simply this:i
- Christianity is a religion that defends the weak and the low
- It is purely Jewish and oriental in origin
- It forces people to bend their backs to the sound of church bells and crawl to the cross of a foreign god
- It began 2000 years ago among sick, exhausted, and despairing men who had lost their belief in life
- The Christian tenets of forgiveness of sin, resurrection, and salvation are plain nonsense
- The Christian of mercy is a dangerous, un-German idea
- Christian love is a silly concept because love paralyses men
- The Christian idea of equality protects the racially inferior, the ill, the weak, and the crippled
You choose to which one make more sense to you.
He probably had built up anger from his mother and that why he did all of that (not saying it was right though)
Although I don't know the exact role Jesus plays in the Book of Mormon, so I can't say for sure.
