Adolph Hitler thread

If it doesn't fit anywhere else, it fits here

Not to derail the thread, but that is a matter of some debate. Certainly he was raised Catholic. He did not go to church at all as an adult. The Nazis certainly released Christian-themed propaganda. But their private beliefs were all over the board. Some Nazis were atheists. Some advocated a return to the Norse gods. Others advocated doing nothing to the churches until the war was over, and then taking control of them. Some were Catholic, and some were Protestant.

Hitler at times appeared to advocate all of those views, plus some others, including a view of Christianity which rejected the Old Testament. He also apparently admired Eastern religions and Islam for being less mealy-mouthed.

Mussolini was less conflicted.

He was baptised and confirmed. A Catholic cannot quit (kinda like the mob), although he could have been kicked out. But the Church never excommunicated Hilter.

Well yeah, that was kind of the point.

However, I did use the term "rail" in responding to a post mentioning Mussolini, which has to be some sort of corollary to Godwin's Law. Maybe the only way to kill a Hitler thread is by mentioning Mussolini and trains.

Yes, Henry, you are correct. But so what?
Are you suggesting that anything Hitler did or said was "in the name of Catholicism?" Because that's just stupid. (And I'm certainly no defender of Catholicism.)
Can't you just let this thread be funny?

Are you fucking kidding me Hank?
I had made the post, clicked "Preview" and saw O.J. had beat me to the punch(line).

Could you be any more uptight and dour?
