Update:

@ Swiss Cheese Guard.

If you don't want to be reminded then you and your buddies should quit claiming he was an atheist

    Who said this?

    "Accordingly, it must and dare not be considered a trifling matter but a most serious one to seek counsel against this and to save our souls from the Jews, that is, from the devil and from eternal death. My advice, as I said earlier, is:

    First, that their synagogues be burned down, and that all who are able toss sulphur and pitch; it would be good if someone could also throw in some hellfire...

    Second, that all their books-- their prayer books, their Talmudic writings, also the entire Bible-- be taken from them, not leaving them one leaf, and that these be preserved for those who may be converted...

    Third, that they be forbidden on pain of death to praise God, to give thanks, to pray, and to teach publicly among us and in our country..."

    Fourth, that they be forbidden to utter the name of God within our hearing. For we cannot with a good conscience listen to this or tolerate it..."

    Hint: It was not Hitler.

    Here's the problem, in Hitler's personal diary, he writes of a strong catholic belief that he is doing God's work in killing off the Jews, other times he writes of the occult, and other times of atheism. The man was really very insane. Don't make a bet with your buddy, Hitler supposedly repented, confessed and received last rites before he died. You can't go by anything that poor crazed man said. I believe that he was Catholic and believed in what he was taught. I believe that when he had a crisis of faith, his own self-doubt and self-loathing made him feel worse than the crisis of faith would have otherwise. If you look hard enough,you will find quotations that seem to be atheist. But in all actuality, he was a very ill man.

    He also said:

    “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?"

    "Through me the Protestant Church could become the established church, as in England."

    "National Socialism and religion cannot 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.... Let it not be said that Christianity brought man the life of the soul, for that evolution was in the natural order of things." Hitler's table talk p 6& 7

    ALL members of the Nazi party were excommunicated by the German Bishops in 1930 prior to the start of the war. Hence why Catholics were not allowed to vote in the 1932 elections.

    Nice try, Hitler said whatever he had to say infront of people but was an avowed atheist who described himself as a complex pagan.

    "Important leaders of the National Socialist party would have liked to meet this situation [church influence] by complete extirpation of Christianity and the substitution of a purely racial religion," said an OSS report in July 1945

    Gobbels said of him:

    "The Führer is deeply religious, but deeply anti-Christian. He regards Christianity as a symptom of decay."

    A little more from the paper hanger.

    I do insist on the certainty that sooner or later – once we hold power – Christianity will be overcome and the German Church established. Yes, the German church, without a Pope …....and Luther, if he could be with us, would give us his blessing.” (Adolf Hitler, Hitler’s speeches, edited by Prof. N.H. Baynes [oxford, 1942], pg. 369.)

    Adolph Hitler.Here is another

    “My feeling as a Christian points me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter. It points me to the man who once in loneliness, surrounded only by a few followers, recognized 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 against the Jewish poison. Today, after two thousand years, with deepest emotion I recognize 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 a fighter for truth and justice. And as a man I have the duty to see to it that human society does not suffer the same catastrophic collapse as did the civilization of the ancient world some two thousand years ago — a civilization which was driven to its ruin through this same Jewish people.

    “Then indeed when Rome collapsed there were endless streams of new German bands flowing into the Empire from the North; but, if Germany collapses today, who is there to come after us? German blood upon this earth is on the way to gradual exhaustion unless we pull ourselves together and make ourselves free!

    “And if there is anything which could demonstrate that we are acting rightly, it is the distress that daily grows. For as a Christian I have also a duty to my own people. And when I look on my people I see them work and work and toil and labor, and at the end of the week they have only for their wages wretchedness and misery. When I go out in the morning and see these men standing in their queues and look into their pinched faces, then I believe I would be no Christian, but a very devil, if I felt no pity for them, if I did not, as did our Lord two thousand years ago, turn against those by whom today this poor people are plundered and exploited.”

    I think that is pretty clear as to his religious beliefs.

    Oh, God, it's the old 'Hitler was a Catholic and therefore Catholicism is inherently evil' premise.

    Any fool can pay lip service to a religion, and will do so when it serves their purpose. Hitler was his own God.

    Adolph Hitler

    Hitler's personal faith was as twisted as his mind.

    God needs no "Defenders Of The Faith."

    He can defend Himself, and will.
