This is just a post about history — but it’s worth including in this section because the fact of “Christophobic Nazism” isn’t as well known as it should be due to the failure of our public/taxpayer-funded/government schools. Hitler was not a Christian, despite what so many radical Lefists would like you to believe.
Here is Bruce Walker writing at American Thinker:
Totalitarian systems are militantly Christophobic. The comments to some of my articles on the dangers of materialism or the ignorance of atheism try to prove that religion is as dangerous to goodness as atheism repeat the false “fact” that “Hitler was a Catholic.” This is utterly untrue. Moreover, all Nazism was viciously Christophobic as well as Judeophobic.
My American Thinker article of November 2007 covers some of the evidence found in old books about the hate all Nazis felt toward Christianity. My book, Swastika against the Cross: The Nazi War on Christianity, covers many more documentary sources that reveal Nazi persecution of Christianity and Christianity’s lonely war against Nazism. Many writers at the time noted that Christianity was the only force resisting the Nazis in Europe.
Indeed, there were many books about the Nazi persecution of Christianity and hatred of religion published before the Second World War began with titles like The Nazi Persecution of the Catholic Church in the Third Reich and The Nazi Persecution of Christianity and The War against God and Nazism versus Religion.
Hundreds of authors writing before and during the Second World War saw Nazism and Christianity as mortal enemies. These authors were Christians – both Catholics and Protestants – and Jews and agnostics. They were on the right and on the left. They were Frenchmen and Germans and Poles and Americans and Britons. The convenient rewriting of history that invents out of whole cloth the notion that Christianity and Nazism were in any way linked runs utterly contrary to the historical record of the time.
But were any leading Nazis Christians in any sense of the word? Emphatically, no. Consider first Hitler himself. John Gunther noted as early as 1935 that “Hitler was born and brought up as a Roman Catholic. But he lost his faith early and attends no religious services of any kind[.] … On being formed his government almost immediately began a fierce religious war against Catholics, Protestants, and Jews alike.”
