I agree that if a Muslim and a Christian come to fight for personal reasons, and say one of them die. It should be accused the person and not his religious background. When instead a person take verses from its holy book where encourage violence or its priest encourage it, then it makes sense to accuse his religious background.<quoted text>
Dear uneducated Woggy,
Hitler may call himself Christian as long as he wanted, this doesnt mean Christianity caused or was the root of Nazism. There is no need to blame that religion. In the other hand if a Muslim takes some passages from Koran and declare war to someone, as often happens, then the fault goes also to the religion.
Hitler claimed to be the Messiah. Golliwog, which religion you want to blame for it, Christianity or Judaism?
What's the implication of the Roman Catholic Church with Nazism?
Before coming to power in January of 1933, Hitler wrote about his reaction to Berlin on his first visit there: "The luxury, the perversion, the iniquity, the wanton display, and the Jewish materialism [of Berlins commercial district] disgusted me so thoroughly that I was almost beside myself," Hitler recalled. "I nearly imagined myself to be Jesus Christ when he came to his Fathers temple and found it full of money-changers. I can well imagine how he felt when he seized a whip and scourged them out."
When Hitler compared himself to Jesus, he was proclaiming his own divinity. Knowing as we do that Hitlers ambitions were eventually blown to smithereens, its hard for us to realize how many Germans considered him a supernatural being.
Except for the tabloids, the international media tended to downplay his most grandiose claims. But the Vatican understood how important it was to talk back to Hitler on the divinity issue. In 1937, Pope Pius XI issued an official letter entitled "With Burning Heart" that scorned Hitler for his claims to godhood.
At a time when people throughout the world still believed Hitler to be a progressive force, the Catholic Church condemned him as a dangerous villain. It denounced the chief Nazi for his racism and attacked Hitler for "placing himself on the same level as Christ." Effectively summarizing Hitlers personality, the Church labeled him "a mad prophet possessed of repulsive arrogance."
Thus did Pope Pius call for the downfall of the German dictator. However, Pius XI did not want to publically speak against Hitler because Hitler was already sending many Catholics to the concentration camps and he felt public speaking would endanger Catholics more. Instead he worked from the back end, spearheading the largest "underground railroad" (to get Jews out of Germany) in WW II. Many Catholic priests did speak in the pulpet against Hitler even when they faced arrest and death and many Catholic families hid Jewish families to save them from the Nazi terror.
When Hitler first came to power, some churches were with him, but soon many became disgusted with his methods. Ministers who preached against Hitler were arrested and taken to concentration camps. But Hitler especially hated Catholics - perhaps because he knew Pope Pius XI was in the background helping hundeds of Jews to safety or perhaps because Hitler had been expelled from Catholic elementary school. Whatever the case, it is estimated that 1 million Catholics died in concentration camps and many convents and monastaries were despoiled and worse.
Take for instance the KKK they are Christians, but they act as they are not. But the posters here will call them Christians, like if religion was the cause of their actions, when it's not.
If someones kill people, the posters here will label him with his religious denomination. As you can see here it's high the level of ignorance of these posters.
