However, are you aware of the convention that the first mention usually signifies an end to discussion? Called Godwin's Law http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godwin's_law It seems pointless to start a thread with that ;-) + 0 Votes he was a mormon Tammy_Tinch 5 years ago big mormon cover up.. anyways thats where the woman are supposed to have as many babies as possible..i grew up in the mormon religion .. thats where that info comes from.. hope that sheds some new light on the subject. + 0 Votes Well....

They believed they were decendants of a long line of an ancient superior race of people. They had their own cult religion. + 0 Votes According to some of the biographies I've seen Deadly Ernest 7 years ago He attended both Catholic and Anglican churches as a youngster. While a student in Vienna he became a devout Communist, he was even an area commissar at one time, but became disillusioned with it, as it didn't go far enough and he wanted something that was more German based, not a world wide thing. In the NAZI party, he moulded its teachings to be more along the communist line, but a lot more hard line. He also added a lot of the racial superiority stuff, there wasn't much until he started incorporating it into the NAZI policy and theology. But his main religion was Hitlerism, all hail the great Adolph + 0 Votes I am really ignorant on the subject. onbliss 7 years ago ...though my question is provocative, hopefully it does not get batted down as being "trollish". In couple of discussions, outside TR, people have claimed that Christian Church stood silently as Hitler killed the Jews. Thereby implying some sort of approval. How valid or absurd are such claims? Any iota of truth to such claims? + 0 Votes His anti-semitism neilb@uk Updated - 7 years ago was pure Catholic of that time. It can also be seen in the attitude of the (Catholic) Poles to the siting of the Holocaust camps and the Poles reaction - or lack - to the Warsaw Ghetto and the uprising. Hitler was undoubtedly a Christian. Mein Kampf: "Therefore, I am convinced that I am acting as the agent of our Creator. By fighting off the Jews, I am doing the Lord's Work." Greek Orthodox Serbs were massacred by Hitler's puppet, Ante Pavelic (Catholic? Oh, yes). No disapproval was shown either by Hitler or, for that matter, The Vatican. The Vatican offered no criticism to Hitler which suggests that they, at least, considered him a Catholic. In 1941, Hitler informed General Gerhart Engel: "I am now as before a Catholic and will always remain so." He never left the Catholic Church, and, as we see on many occasions, the Catholic Church never left him. It's worth noting that much good and even Great literature was banned by his church, but his miserable Mien Kampf never appeared on the Index of Forbidden Books. The problem is that no religion wishes to claim Hitler -least of all the Catholic Church. Hmmmmm. Not sure which I hate most now. Hitler or the Catholic Church. I could go on (and on) but this would probably turn into a rant... + 0 Votes How come this... onbliss 7 years ago ...is displayed in the Questions tab?

I stumbled across the part this evening. I would have not needed to post the question displaying my earlier question on this subject :-) As per John Hagee in his book "Jerusalem Countdown", Martin Luther was deeply appreciated by Hitler. The rest of the post is based on John Hagee's book as well:Pages 77-80. Martin Luther Luther's doctrine provided suitable texts for Hitler's program of extermination. Hagee quotes Luther's "Concerning the Jews and Their Lives" to support his argument. Nazi Anti-Semitism Hagee cites the book "The Roots of Christian Anti-Semitism" (by Hay??) to argue that the Nazi pogrom was a pious performance in honor of the anniversary of Martin Luther's birthday. Hagee also cites Hitler raving "Hence today, I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord". Hagee uses the translation of Mein Kempf by Ralph Manheim, 1971. (page 65??) He also uses http://www.sidroth.org/jewishroots_main3.htm this for reference. Hitler and Catholic Church Hagee says Hitler attended Catholic school; Catholic Church and Pope Pius XII never criticized him after he turned the "demonic monster". Hagee accuses Pope of joining Hitler in the infamous Concordant of Collaboration turning over German youth over to Nazism. Hagee goes on to say that Hitler considered the Concordant as an "unrestricted acceptance of national socialism by the Vatican". It seems this caused Hitler's portrait to be on the walls of Catholic, parochial, and Sunday schools. The Church began to ring bells at every Nazi victory. Hagee bases this on the book "The War against Jews" (Runes??). It started from the Vatican, the German bishops followed the Vatican; the priests followed the bishops and the parishoners fell in line. On Hitler's 50th birthday Protestant and Catholic bishops of all but two dioceses in Germany wrote the following in their pastoral letters "Remember, O Lord, our Fuhrer, whose secret wishes thou knowest. Protect him with thy inexhaustible kindess. Give him the victory of Heaven for him and his foe". He uses Runes book again for the above quote. Hagee concludes that the Catholic Church definitely considered Hitler to be a Christian. And ofcourse Hagee quotes somebody else about Hitler being part Jewish. + 0 Votes What religion? BIOSphereopts 7 years ago Hitler and Himmler both were into Germanic mysticism. If you get a chance find the documentery "The Occult History of the Third Reich". It covers the origins of the Swastika, rituals of the SS, and Hitlers belief in the Aryan man and his obsession in posessing the "Sword of Destiny". Very interesting. + 0 Votes Depends on what the word "religion" means tioedong 7 years ago Hitler, like most Austrians, was baptized Catholic and attended Catholic gradeschool. However, there is no evidence he attended church after reaching manhood. When he was a student in Vienna he was involved in cults concerning the occult.
