|Hitler despised Jews and anything remotely
Jewish and so naturally he despised Christianity. Hitler once said in a
speech that "Christianity is the greatest trick the Jews every played
on humanity". Does this sound like something a Christian would say???
Even though there are some neo-Nazi groups that claim to be "Christian"
it doesn't make them so. You can claim to be a bullfrog and even go so
far to paint yourself green, but it doesn't make you a bullfrog. In
fact, had such "Nazi-Christian" groups existed in Hitler's Germany they
would have surely been liquidated after the war. There was to only be
one religion in the new Germany had Hitler won, and that religion would
have been a state-run version of the Neopagan religion called
There are statements
Hitler made that could lead one to the conclusion Hitler was a
Christian, but only if you're Naive. For instance, in Mein Kampf,
"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." (Mein Kampf Pg 33, English
"The National Government will preserve and defend those basic
principles on which our nation was built up. They regard Christianity
as the foundation of our national morality and the family as a basis of
national life." (Hitler to the German People: Feb. 1 1933).
So Hitler not only tried to make himself sound like a Christian, and
even tried to make anti-Semitism sound like a Christian cause. When
reading such statements, people must use common sense (if you don’t
possess any, please get some). First of all, Mein Kampf was not meant
to be a book of factual statements, but instead meant to be a sort of
sales brochure for evil. After all, Hitler never said "I plan to kill
all the Jews in the whole world and get Germany in another world war! I
will also kill anyone I don’t like, including Freemasons, handicapped
people, Trade Unionists, or Jehovah’s Witnesses. I’ll make soap and dog
food out of them in concentration camps. After that, I will eliminate
Christianity altogether and replace it with a nationalistic Neopagan
religion. Whoever defies me will be killed!".
But these are exactly the
things he was planning while he was writing Mien Kampf. He couldn't
tell people all his crazy schemes or what he really thought or he never
would have come to power. Common sense can detect this is true.
Hitler’s Views on Christianity:
Let's look at a few things before you decide Hitler was a Christian.
Here are some quotes which show what Hitler really thought of
Christianity from the people that were in his inner circle:
"Christianity is an invention of sick brains...The war will be over one
day. I shall then consider that my life's final task will be to solve
the religious problem." [Hitler’s
Table Talk, p. 142-4]
"Christianity is the biggest lie the Jews ever told humanity"
-- Adolf Hitler, 13 December 1941.
"So it's not opportune to hurl ourselves now into a struggle with the
Churches. The best thing is to let Christianity die a natural death,"
-- Adolf Hitler, 14 October 1941.
"When National Socialism has ruled long enough, it will no longer be
possible to conceive of a form of life different from ours. In the long
run, National Socialism and religion will no longer be able to exist
together…The heaviest blow that ever struck humanity was the coming of
Christianity. Bolshevism is Christianity's illegitimate child. Both are
inventions of the Jew. The deliberate lie in the matter of religion was
introduced into the world by Christianity." [Hitler's Table Talk,
"Christianity is a rebellion against natural law, a protest against
nature. Taken to its logical extreme, Christianity would mean the
systematic cultivation of the human failure." [p. 51]
"Christianity, of course, has reached the peak of absurdity in this
respect. And that's why one day its structure will collapse. Science
has already impregnated humanity. Consequently, the more Christianity
clings to its dogmas, the quicker it will decline."[Hitler's Table
Talk, pp 58-62]
"Hitler usually concluded this historical speculation by remarking 'You
see, it's been our misfortune to have the wrong religion. Why didn't we
have the religion of the Japanese, who regard sacrifice for the
Fatherland as the highest good? The Mohammedan religion too would have
been much more compatible to us than Christianity. Why did it have to
be Christianity with its meekness and flabbiness?'" [Speer, Albert, Inside the Third
Reich, Bonanza Books, New York, p. 96]
"The reason why the ancient world was so pure, light and serene was
that it knew nothing of the two great scourges: the pox and
Table Talk, p. 75]
"The Jew who fraudulently introduced Christianity into the ancient
world----in order to ruin it----re-opened the same breach in modern
times, taking as his pretext the social question. Just as Saul became
St. Paul, Mardochai has become Karl Marx." [p. 314]
People who want to paint Hitler as a Christian (including some
Neo-Nazis) state the above claims come mainly from the" recollections"
of his followers and therefore may not be true, and then brainlessly
fall back on quotes from Mien Kampf to paint Hitler as a Christian. But
as we see, there are too many of these "recollections"(and from people
who were closest to him no less) for it to not accurately reflect what
Hitler thought about the Christians. Who would better know what Hitler
really thought than the people closest around him? This may come as a
shock for the more naive readers, but Adolph Hitler was not well known
for his truth telling abilities! Mein Kampf is a book of lies. Are we
also to believe the other things written in Mein Kampf, including
German racial superiority, and an international conspiracy of Jews
taking over the world? Hitler, like any dictator, lied to suit the
situation as he saw fit.
Germany’s population followed the Christian religion, and Hitler knew
that he needed the support of Christians, or else he would not be
supported as the undisputed leader of Germany. Hitler merely claimed to
be a Christian solely for political purposes. Albert Speer, the
architect and weapons procurer for the Third Reich reveals why Hitler
did not immediately gas Christians in the death camps. Albert Speer
noted in his memoirs, " Around 1937, when Hitler heard the at the
instigation of the party and the SS vast numbers of his followers had
left the church because it was obstinately opposing his plans, he
nevertheless ordered his chief associates Goering and Goebbels, to
remain members of the church. He too would remain a member of the
Catholic Church, he said, although he had no real attachment to it. And
in fact he remained in the church until his suicide." [ Inside The
Third Reich by Albert Speer Pg. 146]
A person claiming they have "no real attachment" to the church is not a
Christian! A person who uses church membership to further aims of world
domination is not a Christian! Just going to church does not make one a
Christian, going into a chicken coop does not make one a chicken! The
enemies of the Christian religion try to paint Hitler as a Christian to
detract from it. When Christians see such claims, we must fight back
through the courts. We cannot allow these lies to continue.
Far from embracing Christianity, the Nazi’s, in fact, instituted a
policy known as "Kircenkampf" (literally meaning "against the Church"),
which was a campaign against the churches, both Roman Catholic AND
protestant. The plan was to gradually eliminate Christianity and
replace it with Odinism! The plan was not publicly announced, but the
signs of it were obvious, and certainly Hitler’s inner circle knew of
Kircenkampf. For some Nazis, Kircenkampf wasn’t going fast enough.
Martin Bormann was one such Nazi who would have loved to have
eliminated Christianity before the war ended.
"In Bormann’s mind, the Kirchenkampf, the campaign against the
churches, was useful for reactivating party ideology which had been
lying dormant. He was the driving force behind this campaign, as was
made time and time again made plain around our round table. Hitler was
hesitant, but only because he would rather postpone this problem to a
more favorable time. Here in Berlin, surrounded by male cohorts, he
spoke more coarsely and bluntly than he ever did in the midst of his
Obersalzberg entourage. ‘Once I have settled my other problems,’ he
occasionally declared, ‘I’ll have my reckoning with the church. I’ll
have it reeling on the ropes." [Inside
the Third Riech by Albert Speer
Clearly Hitler and the Nazi high command wanted to eliminate all
Christian Churches. It was not really a question of "if" but "when".
Neopagans like Bormann wanted it done immediately, but Hitler wanted to
wait until he had won World War II, and then with the world conquered.
Hitler knew he needed people to fight for him, and he had to pay lip
service to the church until his aims were met, and then he could
destroy it. Hitler’s hatred for Judaism and all things Jewish was all
consuming, so the tyrant, any Christian church was just another form of

New Evidence Discovered
In 2001 new documents from the Nuremberg trials were declassified and
released to the public by Rutgers Law School that do indeed confirm
Hitler was going to eradicate Christianity after the war had he won.
The documents including original handwritten notes, appear on the web
site of the Rutgers University School of Law in New Jersey in the
United States. General William J Donovan, an investigator at the
International Military Tribunal in Nuremberg after World War II
compiled The 148 volumes of material. According to Julie Seltzer Mandel
in an interview with The Philadelphia Inquirer, "A lot of people will
say, 'I didn't realize that they were trying to convert Christians to a
Nazi philosophy...[the Nazis] wanted to eliminate Jews altogether, but
they were also looking to eliminate Christianity."
