A contentious title right?…. but it got your attention…. If you spend enough time on social media debating with fruitloop’s (theist’s) you will have come across their determined efforts to assert that Hitler was an Atheist.
I will admit I have an ulterior motive for this post, I am sick and tired of discussing Hitler and his non existant Atheism and will in future just post this link to any theist dumb enough to try to engage me in this bullshit. I suggest you do too and save yourself some much needed time!
They love to assert their argument with links to that effect, from surprise surprise Christian and creationist websites. No peer approved papers for them, oh no. They will even post meme’s made up by their religious sites which means about as much as asserting the Bible is proof of god ( just an aside shouldn’t this mean books on evolution prove evolution? ) Proof of their irrational point of view. Let us never accuse theist’s of giving real proof of their outlandish suggestions. They aren’t very big on truth and factual content. Im not even sure they are literate in the academic sense of the word.
I would say 98% of the time i find theists irrational and illogical. As an Atheist I made no distinctions between the various theistic mythologies, they however take it deadly seriously. On watching the news on a daily basis, they are still killing for their beliefs. For the purposes of this article then, I will make it clear we are talking of Catholicism, as i would hate to bring up Hitler as a figurehead for any other denomination.
Theist’s blindly believe what they are told in the Bible, however ,I’m pretty sure they have never bothered to read ‘Mein Kampf’ written by their Catholic brother Mr Adolf Hitler or listened to any of his speeches as they would quickly change their minds about who and what he was!
Wanna know more? Read on:-
Raised as a Catholic he went to a monastery school, and interestingly, walked everyday past a stone arch which had carved the monastery’s coat of arms which included a Swastika. As a young boy, Hitler’s most ardent goal was to become a priest. Much of his philosophy came from the Bible, and more influentially from the Christian Social Movement ( The German Social Movement by the way closely resembles the Christian Right Movement in America today) – but you didn’t need me to tell you that right? Although he fought against certain Catholic priests who opposed his political reason, his belief in God and country never left him. Nor did the Vatican’s Pope and Bishop’s ever disown him, in fact they blessed him!
Many Christian leaders have opposed Christian priests for various reasons; this doesn’t mean they lost their religious belief’s
Just one of his speeches of his christianity ;-
My feelings as a Christian points me to my Lord and Saviour as a fighter. It points me to the man who once in loneliness, surrounded by a few followers, recognised these Jews for what they were and summoned men to fight against them and who, God’s truth! was greatest not as a sufferer but as a fighter. In boundless love as a Christian and as a man I read through the passage which tells us how the Lord at last rose in his might and seized the scourge to drive out of the temple the brood of vipers and adders. How terrific was his fight for he world against the Jewish poison. Today after 2000 years, with deepest emotion I recognise more profoundly than ever before the fact that it was for this that he had to shed his blood upon the cross. As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but i have the duty to be higher for truth and justice… and if there is anyything which could demonstrate that we are acting rightly it is the distress that is daily grown. For as a Christian I have also a duty to my own people ”
– Adolf Hitler in a speech on 12th April 1922
For any who have not read Mein Kampf, I urge you to do so as it is an autobiographical manifesto in which he outlines his political ideology and future plans for Germany, and also his religious leanings. Most theist’s have obviously never read it, but before they spout the drivel he was an Atheist I wish they would do so. There are literally hundreds of mentions of his faith, here are a but a few :-
Once again the songs of the fatherland roared to the heaven’s along the endless marching columns , and for the last time the Lord’s grace smiled on his ungrateful children “- Vol 1 Chapter 7
The personification of the devil as the symbol of all evil assumes the living shape of the Jew” – Vol 1 Chapter 11
The greatness of Christianity did not lie in attempted negotiations for compromise with any similar philosophical opinions in the ancient world, but in its inevitable fanaticism in preaching and fighting for its own doctrine” – Vol 1 Chapter 12
Anyone who dares to lay hands on the highest image of the Lord commits sacrilege against the benevolent creator of this miracle and contributes to the expulsion from paradise” – Vol 2 Chapter 1
It may be that today gold has become the exclusive ruler of life, but the time will come when man will again bow down before a higher god “- Vol 2 Chapter 2
For how shall we fill people with blind faith in the correctness of a doctrine, if we ourselves spread uncertainty and put by constant changes it its outward dogmas which lend to the whole body the character of faith “- Vol 2 Chapter 5
LET US BE CLEAR, HITLER OUT-LAWED ATHEISM IN 1933 ( NOT SURE? LOOK IT UP)
HITLER WAS A JEW HATING CATHOLIC( DEAL WITH IT)
NAZI RACIAL IDEOLOGY WAS REGLIOUS, CREATIONIST AND OPPOSED DARWINISM
His speeches are no less faith orientated :-
The Government being resolved to undertake the political and moral purification of our public life, are creating and securing the conditions necessary for a really profound revival of religious life”- from a speech to the Reichstaag 23rd March 1933
Today Christians… stand at the head of this country… I pledge that I never will tie myself to parties who want to destroy Christianity.. We want to fill our culture again with the Christian spirit.. we want to burn out all the immoral developments in literature, in the theatre, and in the press – in short, we want to burn out the ‘poison of immorality’ which has entered into our whole life and culture as a result of ‘liberal excess’ during the past few years “- from the speeches of Adolf Hitler 1922-1939, Oxford University Press
In this human world of ours would be inconceivable without the practical existence of a religious belief.. faith is absolutely the only basis of a moral outlook on life…
TO DENY THE INFLUENCE OF CHRISTIANITY ON HITLER AND ITS ROLE IN WORLD WAR 2, MEANS THAT YOU MUST IGNORE HISTORY AND FOREVER BAR YOURSELF FROM UNDERSTANDING THE SOURCE OF GERMAN ANTI-SEMITISM AND HOW THE WORLD WAR 2 ATROCITIES OCCURRED
THE CATHOLIC CHURCH AND ITS ROLE IN NAZISM AND THE HOLOCAUST
The Pope in fact was one of the first leaders to know of the true extent of the death camps and he kept silent about it.. No doubt because of the wide spread affirmation of the Nazi policy of the ‘Final Solution’
- Pacelli became Pope in 1939. It is a known fact, he did not openly denounce Nazi Anti-Semitism, although he condemned Nazi racism in more general terms. On 16th October 1943, more than 1,200 jews were arrested by German forces in the Jewish District of Rome. Within a week more than a thousand of those arrested had been taken to Auschwitz and gassed. The Vatican says it offered shelter to hundreds of Jews, but on investigation this number is highly exaggerated.
- Catholic priests and Muslim clerics were willing accomplices in the genocide of the nations Serbian, Jewish and Roma population. The Nazi installed regime of Ante Pavelic in Croatia carried out some of the most horrific crimes, killing over 750,000 Serbs, 60,000 Jews and 26,000 Roma’s. The Archbishop of Zagreb Alojzije Stepinac, and the Palestinian Grand Mufti, Hajj Amin al-Husseini openly supported this genocide.
- Right from the beginning, the Vatican knew what as happening in Croatia, and certainly known to Pius Xll when he greeted Pavelic in the Vatican – just four days after the massacre of Glina.
Lest we also forget the last Pope was a member of the Nazi Party …
THE VATICAN’S ROLE IN HELPING MANY NAZI’S ESCAPE THE NUREMBERG TRIALS
- ANTE PAVELIC – he fled to Argentina via the Vatican, dressed as a Catholic Priest, together with 200 of his advisors
- FATHER KRUNOSLAV DRAGANVIC – Ante’s alter ego, he arrived in Rome in 1943 and again they organised his escape to Argentina including false papers
- KLAUS BARBIE – known as the Butcher of Lyons, who murdered and tortured many Jews.
- FRANZ STANGL – The commandant of Treblinka,
- WALTER RAUF – the inventor of the mobile gas chamber.
Pope Pius personally authorised the smuggling of Nazi war criminals, which was directed by his political advisor Giovanni Montini ( who later became Pope Paul Vl ).
Shortly before his death in Madrid in 1959, Pope John Xxlll granted pavelic his special blessing. On his death bed, Pavelic held a wreath that was a personal gift from Pope Pius Xll from the year 1941.
By comparing wanted Nazi’s with travel documents given by the Vatican we can confirm around 8,000 Waffen-SS members were helped by the allies and the Red Cross in 1947 alone
The Red Cross being over-whelmed with refugees, relied substantially on Vatican references and so it was easy for the Vatican to assist and help so many escape capture
MEN NEVER DO EVIL SO COMPLETELY AND CHEERFULLY AS WHEN THEY DO IT FROM RELIGIOUS CONVICTION – BLAISE PASCAL
Let us be quite clear here, the reason you believe what you are told as Christian’s is down to the lies and propaganda by the Catholic Church who hush up their involvement with the Nazis and their complicity in the holocaust. It should be noted to date the Vatican will not release any papers relating to Pope Pius and the ‘War Years”.
Let us not forget the genocide perpetrated by christianity through the ages :-
- The Crusades
- Albegensian Crusade
- The Spanish Inquistion
- The list can go on.
So don’t talk to me about the immorality of Atheism, if you don’t wish to get it back with both barrels. Trust me you don’t want to even try.
Don’t talk to me of the superiority of your vacuous religion and not expect me to laugh in your face. Just don’t
You believe the lies your biblical scholars tell you and we my theist fruitloops will live in the real world, where facts, truths and common sense will prevail.
We are living in an age of information, if you choose to be stifled by ancient myths you are limiting yourself. Are you really willing to do that.
