The fact is that you atheists love to pretend that Hitler was a Christian.

Another fact is, Hitler lied about everything so he'd get elected. He even promised peace with France.(an obvious lie...)

A letter by Hitler to the French fascist Hervé and published in the Nazi Völkischer Beobachter on October 26, 1930:

"I think I can assure you that there is no one in Germany who will not with all his heart approve any honest attempt at an improvement of relations between Germany and France. My own feelings force me to take the same attitude... The German people has the solemn intention of living in peace and friendship with all civilized nations and powers... And I regard the maintenance of peace in Europe as especially desirable and at the same time secured, if France and Germany, on the basis of equal sharing of natural human rights, arrive at a real inner understanding... The young Germany, that is led by me and that finds its expression in the National Socialist Movement, has only the most heartfelt desire for an understanding with other European nations."

Of course Hitler is gonna talk about The Lord. In the 1920's NOBODY got elected into politics without using God as a reference.
Hitler hated Christianity and all it represented. He hated Jews even more.
But I don't expect you to listen to reason...
Hitler outlawed atheism and loved Martin Luther's antisemitic texts and once a catholic always a catholic -- catholic church

No pretending needed. He closed the German atheists and have their building an property to the Catholic Church.

He said.. I believe today my conduct is in accordance with the almighty creator.

I fell down on my knees and thanked heaven with an overflowing heart.

I could go on and on with Hitler's hundreds if not thousands of public an private statements of his deep faith in god. Each nazi belt buckle said God with us. He actually hated the Russians for having so many atheists and called them foul godless creatures and even proclaimed that after conquering Russia one of his first acts would be to indoctrinate the Russian masses into Christianity.

And most telling is when Hitler joyously proclaimed. There are no more Atheists in Germany!

Christians get so defensive about Hitler! ;)

You make lots of assertions none of which are backed up by any serious evidence.

I don't think you know to much about Herr Hitlers religiosity which remains quite obvious from what you post.

TOPIX should provide a Godbot filter for the atheist forums. Icon to indicate Godbot.

Something intuitive that automatically sends the Godbot to a robust religious site or creates a new thread for them.

Ya, he banned atheism but at least he didn't slaughter 6 million if you. He hated Jews and he hated Christians and Christianity.

"once a catholic always a catholic"?? Really? Why don't you talk to some of the "ex-Christians" here on Topix.

Tell them that.

It's funny how some of you brag that you used to be religious but aren't anymore, but you can't fathom that Hitler was the same...

Well of course, he was pandering to a religious public. He needed their votes.

Ever bother to look at his private statements about Christianity post-1940?

I doubt it.

You have nothing, he never renounced his Christianity, ever. He banned atheism and even gave atheist property to the church.

You lose.

I have read his few comments of frustration towards certain Christians.

Which are meaningless compared to his actions and plans for the future including indoctrinating what he called those Russian atheists and converting them to Christianity.
