Unfortunatley even after blowing all your remarks our of the water you still babble on about Hitler being a Christian extrimists..Whitout proof might i ad.I can bring up many documented remarks hitler made against christianity,can you bring up ducumentated facts of hitler acting in the name of christianity? One of his party's demands was even against the christian dominant culture at the time.com plete freedom of religion for everybody instead of only christianity like the church wanted.A Hitler Youth marching song (Grunberger, A Social History) illustrates it: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

I actually studied history including nazisme so i actually know what i'm talking about.If your not as pigheaded is a think you are and as open minded as you claim you will read the next link and admit you are wrong because you are.

You won't ever win with these f-ing freak shows. They are simply intellectually dishonest people. When muslims encounter ignorant people, it is recommended that they reply "peace". This is something these morons would know if they actually knew anything about Islam and how it is practiced by people like myself. Its encouraging that there are people like you who despite their own relgious beliefs still recognize the rights of other to practice their religions also in peace.I agree with what you said. Extremism in any form is bad. I just wanted you to know that I appreciate your posts.

WAS HITLER A CHRISTIAN?
Alan Bullock is a journalist and biographer of Adolf Hitler.

'Hitler had been brought up as a Catholic and was impressed by the organization and power of the Church. Its hierarchical structure, its skill in dealing with human nature and the unalterable character of its Creed, were all features from which he claimed to have learned.

For the Protestant clergy he had nothing but contempt:'They are insignificant little people, submissive as dogs, and they sweat with embarrassment when you talk to them. They have neither a religion they can take seriously nor a great position to defend like Rome.'[Conversation with Rauschning on 7 April 1933; Hitler Speaks, p. 62]

It was 'the great position' of the Church that he respected, the fact that it lasted for so many centuries; towards its teaching he showed the sharpest hostility. In Hitler's eyes Christianity was a religion fit only for slaves; he detested its ethics in particular. Its teaching, he declared, was a rebellion against the natural law of selection by struggle, and the survival of the fittest.'Taken to its logical extreme, Christianity would mean the systematic cultivation of the human failure.'[Hitler's Table Talk, London 1953, p. 57]

From political considerations he restrained his anti-clericalism, seeing clearly the dangers of strengthening the Church by persecution. For this reason he was more circumspect than some of his followers, like Rosenberg and Bormann, in attacking the Church publicly. But, once the war was over, he promised himself, he would root out and destroy the influence of the Christian Churches.'The evil that is gnawing at our vitals,' he remarked in February 1942,'is our priests, of both creeds. I can't at present give them the answer they've been asking for but...it's all written down in my big book. The time will come when I'll settle my account with them... They'll hear from me all right. I shan't let myself be hampered with judicial scruples.'[Hitler's Table Talk, p. 304]

Maybe because they believed and followed this:

I tell you that to everyone who has, more shall be given, but from the one who does not have, even what he does have shall be taken away. But these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slay them in my presence.(Luke 19:26-27)

No disrespect.

OH ALEN, HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO EXPLAIN THIS? READ THE WHOLE CHAPTER AND SEE THAT JESUS WAS SAYING A PARABLE:

LUKE 19:11
'11 While they were listening to him speak, he proceeded to tell a parable because he was near Jerusalem and they thought that the kingdom of God would appear there immediately.
12 So he said, "A nobleman went off to a distant country to obtain the kingship for himself and then to return.
13 He called ten of his servants and gave them ten gold coins and told them,'Engage in trade with these until I return.'
14 His fellow citizens, however, despised him and sent a delegation after him to announce,'We do not want this man to be our king.'

THE WORDS YOU QUOTE WERE THOSE OF THE KING IN THE STORY!!!!!!!
