1. Who's the goof on the left? I know D. James Kennedy has been lying for years.

And Falwell did, as well as the rest of them.

2. It's the Xians who were the Nazis....

Hitler did say some things about religion............. "I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator... I am fighting for the work of the Lord.." "My feelings as a Christian points me to my Lord and Savior as a
fighter." “I believe today that my conduct is in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator.” "“I am now as before a Catholic and will always remain so."

Lots more... http://www.nobeliefs.com/Hitler1.htm

And then there was Mussolini.

8. Hitler used churches for evil like he used everything else. But some resisted

There were Lutheran pastors (i.e. Dietrich Bonhoffer, Martin Niemoller) who resisted the Nazis both individually and as a group. Some died in prison or camps, some survived.

There were nuns who ran Catholic orphanages and took in Jewish children and gave them baptismal names; boys whose voices had not yet broken could be dressed as young postulants -- my late father in law regularly brought extra food rations to at least one orphanage in Belgium; his own children had been taken by the Nazis, but other children hidden in Catholic orphanages could and did survive.

There were also priests who resisted.

The history of anti-Semitism in Europe is centuries-long and dismal, and without it Hitler could not have succeeded the way he did. But not everyone went along, which is why there is a memorial in Jerusalem, Yad Vashem Museum, dedicated to the Righteous Gentiles.

4. Jefferson and this asshat...

in the same picture is insulting. Yes, Jefferson had his faults, but he was a more literate and thinking man than 95% of the denizens of Capitol hill.

6. Run a German-English translation program on the word "Gleichschaltung". That

 

should pretty much tell you every thing you need to know about Herr Hitler and religion.

7. A Hitler quote


“With Satanic joy in his face, the black-haired Jewish youth lurks in wait for the unsuspecting girl whom he defiles with his blood".
