No I meant Hitler wanted to champion Protestant Christianity in Germany, sure it had it's benefits but as we see Hitler was moving away from the Catholic Church and moving more in line towards how your church operates.

You're welcome.

It means "coordination", "making the same", "bringing into line", it's a Nazi term for the process by which the Nazi regime successively established a system of totalitarian control and coordination over all aspects of society.

Nice "church", eh?

UK?
School Standards and Framework Act 1998 states that all pupils in state schools must take part in a daily act of collective worship, unless their parents request that they be excused from attending.[19] The majority of these acts of collective worship are required to be "wholly or mainly of a broadly Christian character", with two exceptions:

* Religious schools, which should provide worship appropriate to the school's religion (although most religious schools in the UK are Christian.)
* Schools where the Local Education Authority's Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education has determined that Christian worship would not be appropriate for part or all of the school.

Currently, Section 70 of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998 is not compatible with Article 9 of European Convention on Human Rights, part of the Human Rights Act 1998.

Despite there being a statutory requirement for schools to hold a daily act of collective worship, many do not. OFSTED's 2002-03 annual report, for example, states that 80% of secondary schools are not providing daily worship for all pupils.

Funny how politicians pretend, isn't it?
I think that the whole hitler thing is stupid, and don't really care whether he was religious or not, but it's funny how you claim he was pretending when he said anything that contradicts your opinion of him.

You worship the same imaginary being as a
Jew, Muslim, or Christian - the different 'made up' rules on how to subjugate themselves to this diety are unintentionally hilarious and for the delusional only.

Hey I just wanted to point out that you really do poorly debating on here you know?

I mean you say Catholics are not Christians but then admit that Catholics are the largest Christian church!

You say historians aren't scholars?

You obviously don't read your links.

I could go on and on but here's my point. You need
