I think it is a fallacy to compare anyone to Hitler or Nazis in the first place. It is an intellectually shallow way to argue.
However, when Christians try to argue that Hitler was not a Christian it is just as intellectually dishonest. We know that he claimed to be Catholic and that he used Biblical language and talked of God. We do not know what he truly believed, but that is true of anyone you care to name.
I remember some goofhead on this thread arguing for multiple pages that the Nazis were caused by Charles Darwin. On another thread some idiots have argued that pro-choice folks are like Hitler.
It is dumb as balls to compare people to Hitler because frankly it is just an easy target. He's universally considered to be a symbol of evil so if you want to vilify someone completely you might think of comparing them to Hitler. Don't do it. You'll lose the argument in a split second.
Hitler was a sociopathic, evile, power hungry, corrupt, thug- that disregarded anything he may have ever learned about HUMANE humanity.

In the top five of the most evil dictators of the 20th century.

"Absolute power corrupts absolutely", and liie most corrupt and evil dictators, that was Hitlers ultimate quest.

Um...if you are a Christian then the OT is YOUR book. Not mine. If it truly is "junk" then how about we stop using Leviticus to demonize homosexuals? And let's stop using the OT to support spurious claims that Jesus was prophesied to come.
And for goodness sake pleeeeaaaase stop arguing that Noah's Ark was a real boat that held two of every animal.
Can we do that?
you must be confusing me with someone else?

I dislike the OT, but do not discredit it's merit for glimpses into world history. I personally have always held preferable penchant for the NT.
As for Noahs Ark, I never read any such verses as being "exactly literal". For all we know (as we were NOT there) there may have been only ten types of animals in the vicinity of ANY flood.
That's my perspective, it's always been my perspective, and I'm sticking to it.

Why should anyone believe you?
Did Christians fight for Hitler sure they did.
Did Boy Scouts of America use the swastika , yes they did.
A white swastika on a black field was the flag of an American Boy Scout Troop from its founding to some point in the 1930's, when the Troop itself voted to discontinue its use, in light of the rise of the Nazi regime.
Hitler said he's a christian.
"God is with us." "I am now as before a Catholic and will always remain so." — Adolf Hitler, to Gen. Gerhard Engel, 1941
Know him personally did you?

What's your point? LOTS of people joined the ranks of the NAZI's, those that weren't condemned to the evil plans of the same anyway.

Hitler had obviously grown AWAY from anything decent learned from "Christianity" into a charlatan, a cretin and one sick in the head, souless, corrupted power hungry, sociopath.

The Boy Scouts made a good choice in denouncing the symbolic of stupid.

Maybe in your twisted book of reading, but not in mine.

I prefer "get thee away Satan", and burn in thee own piles of misery.

Mostly because Satan has been historically associated with nothing but evil.

I guess we have a different definition of the word evil. Your god killed millions, said slavery and rape are good, demanded for you to kill children (now that is evil) so jehovah is evil and any one who worships jehovah is an evil devil worshipper. All Satan did was give us free will.
Jehovah= evil slavery, Satan = freedom

Truth, information, and knowledge are the enemies of the christian cult. The Internet was (and still is) thought to be the "anti-christ" because it put information at ones fingertips

O my, jesus and the neutered testement was all about love and forgiveness. Lets take a look,

"And the jews passover was at hand, and jesus went up to jerusalem and found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting and when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen and poured out the changers money, and overthrew the tables and said unto them that sold doves take these things hence make not my father's house an house of merchandise."

Maybe he should have just ask them to leave but noooo,
love love love.

And revelations is in the neutered testement last I checked, now theres some love.

Religies are so funny,

Lets compare,

1. christians established a ‘cult of "god in a jesus suit" worship’.

2. christians used a series of propaganda and threat of terror to achieve its cult status.

3. Youth were made to worship this god also.

Lmfao what hypocrisy.

No religious holy books in public schools, they obviously create stupidity in humans.

Lmao.

If someone did not claim to be a nazi, someone would not bring it up. Best to have all facts before making a judgement, it is an intellectually shallow thing to do.

"If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple."

Now religies say "god in a jesus suit" did not mean this literally.

Who decides that? Special understanding?

Exactly where in the holy fables does "god in a jesus suit" say he was just joking?

Who claimed to be a Nazi? I might have missed that post.

Either way the point stands. Comparing your debate opponent to Hitler or Nazis is a sign that you don't have a good argument. I've done it, you've probably done it, lots of people do it. But it is not a good way to argue.

The only point standing was to show you had no ideal what my statement was about, and judged me "intellectually shallow".

Yes I have. They sometimes knock on the door. I usually ask them why God allows babies to suffer and die. They usually answer by handing me a Watchtower tract, which I then toss in the garbage.
That is why you do not get answers unless you think your garbage can read it and will then talk to you!
Why not tell Jehovah's Witnesses the next time they came around that you would like to have the book "What Does the Bible REALLY Teach?" In it is Chapter Eleven
Why Does God Allow Suffering?
There you will get the answer you are seeking.
