It seems to me what your saying is the person knowingly pulls themselves out of a bad place and then gives thanks to a higher power, God, religion or bible.
I agree partially with what your saying, but, The addict (as an example) More likely has tried many times to walk away. When they ask for help from a power greater then themselves (whether or not that power is real is besides the point) is when the success rate goes up.
My statement that God, religion, the bible has saved many lives is true whether or not there is a God or not. The truth lies in the fact that people get beat down so far they dont feel they can do it alone. That fictitious or non fictitious God religion or bible has helped them recover from something they did not believe they could recover from. It saved their lives..........
There is a link in aiding anyone with an addiction to anything, that 'we cannot take something away from anyone without replacing it with something better.'
Grace found Grace when she needed it, and that space was filled the most in the Christian Faith. Who is anyone to judge ? You do not harbor that bitterness 'Storm' which many do towards believing in God, even if you don't. Thanx Bro. Freedom is no path where respect looses all rights to dignity.

Hitler was a Catholic!
Hitler is a very well-known and famous individuals, when discussing him you should learn to stick the fact and leave opinion out of it.

His religious views are well-known, outside of atheist websites you don't hear anything about him being a Catholic. What does that tell you? It tells me that atheists use his Catholic family and his propaganda speeches as an excuse to call him Catholic and a way to help them demonize Christians.

In early 1933, Hitler vowed secretly to completely eradicate Christianity from Germany. "You are either a Christian or a German, you cannot be both." What's that tell you?!?!!

Hitler was smart enough to know that in a nation as Christian as Germany, one could not let such views to be become known to the public or the Christian churches.

These aren't the words of the Catholic you describe:

"National Socialism and religion cannot exist together.... The heaviest blow that ever struck humanity was the coming of Christianity. "

"Christianity is a rebellion against natural law, a protest against nature...human failure."
(10th October, 1941, midday, p 43 )

"Christian doctrine will be convicted of absurdity.... Christianity has reached the peak of absurdity.... And that's why someday its structure will collapse....... the only way to get rid of Christianity is to allow it to die little by little.... Christianity [is] the liar.... We'll see to it that the Churches cannot spread abroad teachings in conflict with the interests of the State."

Woah there. You think Hitler designed the Hakenkreuz?!
LMMFAO!!
You know the Hakenkreuz IS a Swastika?
The hackenkreuz is no Swastika, it is turned 45 degrees and goes the wrong way, most Swastika go the other way, otherwise it is considered bad luck.

You know the Swastika is a symbol that's over 3,000 years old?!
You know before the Nazis, it was used China, Japan, India, and southern Europe?
Before the Nazis corrupted it, the Swastika represented life, sun, power, strength, and good luck.
Hitler took the Hakenkreuz, added a white circle and made it his own symbol.
It is obvious now that you don't care about truth, you ONLY care about denigrating Christians.
You're a POE.
The Swastika is an old Sun symbol, used in cultures all over the world, also in Christianity. Jesus himself is surrounded with Sun-symbolism. It was not corrupted by the Nazi's, but by Christians that after the war started to call the hackenkreuz Swastika. This way they wanted to create the impression Nazism was not a Christian movement.

But Nazism was a movement created to counteract communism. Communism rejected religion and was perceived as a great threat to Christianity. That is why Catholics and Protestants brotherly worked together in the Nazi movement. Though it was led by a Catholic with a Catholic agenda, it was supported even more by Protestants. it was created to stop atheism. As Communist leaders were mostly Jews (Marx was a Jew too), they became the prime target.

After the war the churches wanted to distance themselves from the genocides by creating the idea that the Nazi's had somehow held the poor Christians hostage. Nonsense, without the active support of the churches Hitler's movement would never have even come from the ground. Where did all the organisation come from? Did it arise out of nothing? Dream on, it built on existing social structures. The church helped Hitler where ever it could, the Christian parties even withdraw from the elections to give Hitler a majority.

First Hitler helped defeat communism in Spain, by sending help to General Franco. Later he attacked the Communist in Russia. That is what the church wanted. If the Americans had not given the USSR massive help he might well have succeeded.

Would you allow churches that deny marriage to black people to keep their tax-exempt status?
<quoted text>
It occurs to me that it's the goddite that wants freedom and choice - for the goddite - and yet it's the goddite, primarily, that opposes same sex marriage and a myriad of other areas in our society that the goddite does not have to engage in(choice), yet they feel they must prevent others from engaging in(prevention of freedom), too.

Isn't it our religious freedom to do so ?
It is even written my religions holy book!
If not then you must be persecuting me.

<quoted text> There is nothing in the bible that compels goddites to dictate how people should live their lives or express themselves.

Hitler was a Catholic! He wanted to bring all christians back into the fold, that is Roman Catholicism. In Catholicism people did not read the Bible, only the priests did. In fact my mother told me that you had to have permission to read the bible yourself, and then only the Old Testament. Reading the Old Testament was totally forbidden. Catholics go to church, light candles for Maria, but did not read the Bible. For people who were interest they had special courses though.

The Nazi's executed people that stood in their way, so what the church had been doing that from the very beginning. The biggest challenger of early church was Arius, he had a lot of supporters, so they poisoned him. Protestant church fathers were equally scrupulous. You still live in the dream that Christianity is somehow a peaceful, loving religion. To believe that you have to ignore 2000 years of history.
But like always you ignore the questions you are posed
YOU GIVE ME ONE QUOTE IN WHICH HITLER REJECTS JESUS OR THE HOLY GHOST.
Because only this would be proof he was not a Christian, all the rest is based on a idealist picture that does not match Christian leaders. Christians can be as evil as they like, they go back to Jesus and ask forgiveness. That is what is the base of this religion. And protestants make it even worse by their "save by grace"-idea.
Of course he was a christian. He thought he was Jesus doing God's pay-back for why the Jews were so disobedient in the first place... they still have to prove they are the chosen people.

Yes, why would you think otherwise?

I'm assuming of course that when you say ex-Catholic you mean a person that was a Catholic, then dropped their religion. Yes/no?
It is your opinion and mine, there are no facts about what he really believed.
Ya, I suppose. But don't you think it's foolish to use a politicians public speeches as a means of truth?

Curtails their freedom.

Which is why I don't oppose gay marriage.

You can't run around with blinders on thinking that all Christians (or people of any religion for that matter) are the same.

Just as many if you atheists are different, we are too.

No, not at all. It'd be more like removing the Bible from schools and replacing it with the memoirs of a dictator.....
Your post made it sound like the Nazis were converting everyone to atheism.
I wasn't talking about the Nazis, just Hitler.

And for the record, I really don't think he was an atheist no more than he was a Catholic.
I talked to the witness personally.
I never met any of the alleged eyewitnesses that you speak of. In fact, the only documents that are "eye-witness" are a few of Paul's letters. Other than those, the entire Bible is anonymous second hand tales at best.
Probably because you're not 2,000 years old...

When we read with the heart and not the ego, the mind has a way of grasping more of the reality of a situation... thank you HL. My very first post to you was in the spirit of the moment of your compassion, and you have shown a dignity here which many in any walk of life neglect.
We can always walk freely when we share the truth with respect, and honour all who walk on its path. For it is not by the 'high'-way that the small things are noticed, but by the 'loew-ly that peacemakers are born in the struggle.

<quoted text> true thing. it was always curious to me...why mankind a created being thinks it can use its laws of reason physics and other laws that put limits on mankind--that they could use those same laws to apply to a God that exist beyond those laws. very curious.
I understand the reasons for these limitations as being no end to God... eternal. Any laws given to mankind were for his benefit and learning on this earth... from health to safety and any other reason under the sun. It is automatic that if they are not kept, human history tells of what can happen all round through mistakes or the term, disobedience. It is no different in the science, whether on the earth or the cosmos. Everything has laws of existence.
