  1. You mean the Nazism that had the German words “Gott Mitt Uns,” meaning, God is with us, inscribed on the belt buckle of every member of its Armed Forces – the one that was led by the guy who said he was Catholic?? 🙄

      A substitute religion is not necessarily “Atheism,” or something like that. It is a specific category that Nazism falls underneath and is defined as:

      “The theory of political religion concerns governmental ideologies whose cultural and political backing is so strong that they are said to attain power equivalent to those of a state religion, with which they often exhibit significant similarities in both theory and practice.” (Gentile, Emilio: Politics as Religion (2006) Princeton University Press)

      • I considered that the purpose of publishing this post was yet another Christian attempt to lay the blame for these on the “Godless Atheists,” but, if you look closely, you’ll notice that I did not use that word.
        What I implied, and what the quote that you supplied verified, is that Christianity, all too easily and frequently, is used to support and justify horrific actions and policies, for the benefit of its ruling caste. Too often, ‘Good Christians’ are shown to be liars and scammers..
        Somewhat recently, Pope Benny the Dick was forced to resign, when it became known that he and the Holy Catholic Church cavorted with the Nazis during World War II. There is no evidence that Hitler ceased being a Christian, but it’s not surprising that he wanted to distance himself from the Vatican. It’s like Groucho Marx saying that he did not want to be a member of a club that would accept him as a member. They were too devious and opportunistic, even for him. 😯

      Although Hitler was born and raised in historically Catholic Austria, he lost his faith in the Church at an early age.

      • See above. There’s no proof that Hitler ceased being a Christian. I am not surprised that he lost faith in “The Church”. I lost all such faith years ago. 🙁
