So you suddenly trust Hitler's truthfulness like muslims trust Muhammad? How can this happen to atheists who're not supposed to be very smart? Can't you understand the collection from his Table-Talks? Apparently you wouldn't understand why Muhammad was "peaceful" before he rise to power either.
Here's help for you:
Hitler was born Catholic just as Stalin was born into the Russian Orthodox Church and Mao was raised as a Buddhist. These facts prove nothing as many people reject their religious upbringing, as these three men did... historian Allan Bullock writes, Hitler “had no time at all for Catholic teaching, regarding it as a religion fit only for slaves and detesting its ethics.”
Hitler himself says in Mein Kampf that his public statements should be understood as propaganda that bears no relation to the truth but is designed to sway the masses.
He called Christianity one of the great “scourges” of history, and said of the Germans,“Let’s be the only people who are immunized against this disease.”(Sounds like you and Bob?)
He promised that “through the peasantry we shall be able to destroy Christianity.” In fact, he blamed the Jews for inventing Christianity. He also condemned Christianity for its opposition to evolution.
Hitler reserved special scorn for the Christian values of equality and compassion, which he identified with weakness. Hitler’s leading advisers like Goebbels, Himmler, Heydrich and Bormann were atheists who hated religion and sought to eradicate its influence in Germany.
During his ascent to power, Hitler needed the support of the German people—both the Bavarian Catholics and the Prussian Lutherans—and to secure this he occasionally used rhetoric such as “I am doing the Lord’s work.” To claim that this rhetoric makes Hitler a Christian is to confuse political opportunism with personal conviction.
Hitler himself says in Mein Kampf that his public statements should be understood as propaganda that bears no relation to the truth but is designed to sway the masses.
Richard Evans writes that “the Nazis regarded the churches as the strongest and toughest reservoirs of ideological opposition to the principles they believed in.” Once Hitler and the Nazis came to power, they launched a ruthless drive to subdue and weaken the Christian churches in Germany. Evans points out that after 1937 the policies of Hitler’s government became increasingly anti-religious.
The Nazis stopped celebrating Christmas, and the Hitler Youth recited a prayer thanking the Fuhrer rather than God for their blessings. Clergy regarded as “troublemakers” were ordered not to preach, hundreds of them were imprisoned, and many were simply murdered. Churches were under constant Gestapo surveillance. The Nazis closed religious schools, forced Christian organizations to disband, dismissed civil servants who were practicing Christians, confiscated church property, and censored religious newspapers.
As historian Richard Weikart documents, both Hitler and Himmler were admirers of Darwin and often spoke of their role as enacting a “law of nature” that guaranteed the “elimination of the unfit.” Weikart argues that Hitler himself “drew upon a bountiful fund of social Darwinist thought to construct his own racist philosophy” and concludes that while Darwinism is not a “sufficient” intellectual explanation for Nazism, it is a “necessary” one. Without Darwinism, there might not have been Nazism.
The Nazis also drew on the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, adapting his atheist philosophy to their crude purposes. Nietzsche’s vision of the ubermensch and his elevation of a new ethic “beyond good and evil” were avidly embraced by Nazi propagandists. Nietzsche’s “will to power” almost became a Nazi recruitment slogan.

True.

However, Hitler found a willing people in Genuine Christians™ and soon rose to power.

More skeptical folk may not have been as receptive.

Religious liars like you have proven yourselves to be worthless scum.

When you want to join the real world where people tell the truth and can admit that they are wrong, you are welcome.

Until then, you deserve the mental illness you have locked yourself into.

You don't have a position on anything - you're mentally ill and can't accept that Hitler killed people because he was born into your cult.
He said it himself - chritianity motivated him to believe he was absolutely right to kill those people.
That is why cults like creationism are dangerous - people like you will justify anything to get into your imaginary heaven.
That IS why you lie over and over again here isn't it???
Hitler murdered his critics ; and I'm sure manipulated the masses with lies ...So , of course he used Gods name ..what megalomaniac does not ...

Can I ask , do you believe Hitler improved Christians standing in the world ...i.e. Did more come to believe ..?

Nope. My ideology includes **voting citizenry**. None of those did that.
My ideology includes **rule**of**law**-- in that the LAW is the Supreme Justification for everything else.
None of them did **that** either-- they believed in their own **personal** supremacy, and thought they could do no "wrong".
More over? Pol Pot, Stalin and Mao were **religious** in one or more ways. I know little of Lenin, but he likely was too.
Most Tyrants are; true--many believe **they** are some sort of **god** but that's religion for you:

Simply religion is divisive and restricts us as a species, simple as that. Check out a book that's causing a bit of a buzz in the Uk called 2082 the chronicles of hope. On the website the 1st chapter for the 1st book is on there for free, there's a speech in there by an atheist politician that's genius

Indeed.

That is why the whole "god" thing is so insidiously EVIL.

Lie. Sweden. Switzerland. Both very atheistic. Both hold those things I listed.

In fact?

The **MORE** god there is?

THE FEWER THINGS ON MY LIST.

Most "god-fearing" countries are HORRID PLACES TO LIVE: atrocity after atrocity for the population.

Especially anyone not in the "god-club", as it were-- but even then?

Horrid treatment.

Take the USA: the "god fearing" republicans are desperate to strip out ALL helping-hand programs.

Why?

Because of selfish greed: the hallmark of "god fearing" behavior.
