"Hitler was a neo-pagan terrorist whose conscience was not informed by Christianity, but by pseudo-scientific racist philosophies. Hitler hated the Catholic Church, made plans to kill the Pope, authorized the murder of thousands of priests and nuns, and did everything he could to suppress the influence of the Church. In 1933, Hitler said,'It is through the peasantry that we shall really be able to destroy Christianity because there is in them a true religion rooted in nature and blood."<quoted text>Yes, he called himself a christian. Those were HIS words. Anything else is hearsay, and suspect. If you're going to use the "his actions say he wasn't", you can stop there. If all christians were judged as christian or not based on their behavior, there would be no christians.
What was his hatred of Jews based on if not christianity? Even on these threads, the xenophobia has been overwhelming. Why is it such a stretch that his religious views played a role in his actions?
And no, I'm not suggesting all christians are like Hitler, or even like some of the zealots who gravitate toward these threads. I can only hope it's it's a fringe minority.
Why all the red herrings about diet, smoking, and breathing oxygen? Surely you don't compare those to religious convictions. Are you denying that his religious convictions were tied in to his worldview?
By your logic I can now call myself the smartest man that ever lived. And now the burden of proof is on you to disprove it.
