Through subterfuge and concealment, many of today’s Church leaders and faithful Christians have camouflaged the Christianity of Adolf Hitler and have attempted to mark him an atheist, a pagan cult worshipper, or a false Christian in order to place his misdeeds on those with out Jesus. However, from the earliest formation of the Nazi party and throughout the period of conquest and growth, Hitler expressed his Christian support to the German citizenry and soldiers. Those who would make Hitler an atheist should turn their eyes to history books before they address their pews and chat rooms.

Hitler Was a Christian
The Holocaust was caused by Christian fundamentalism:
 History is currently being distorted by the millions of Christians who lie to haveus believe that the Holocaust was not a Christian deed. Through subterfuge andconcealment, many of today’s Church leaders and faithful Christians havecamouflaged the Christianity of Adolf Hitler and have attempted to mark him anatheist, a pagan cult worshipper, or a false Christian in order to place his misdeedson those with out Jesus. However, from the earliest formation of the Nazi party andthroughout the period of conquest and growth, Hitler expressed his Christiansupport to the German citizenry and soldiers. Those who would make Hitler anatheist should turn their eyes to history books before they address their pews andchat rooms.Considering that Christianity has thus far been incapable of producing anunbiased, educated follower which speaks the truth, (I haven’t encountered any), Ihave been forced to dispel the myth by writing this essay. It is not until I bring uphis speeches, my personal info on the Nazi regime and their tactics that a Christianwill begin to question what their clergy told them. (I am the offspring of a Germansoldier. My Opa served under Hitler in WW2 and my father was raised during thetime of the Nazi regime. This is important information to take into considerationfor I am privy to some info that most Americans do not know. It is common for American media and education institutions to lie to their citizens concerning NaziGermany.) So, in presenting this information I must break it into four parts: 1)Facts about Hitler and his involvement with the Church. 2) How the Church wasthe catalyst for anti- Semitism. 3) Facts concerning how the Nazi regime drilledthese beliefs into Germanic society. 4) Quotes Hitler made which prove he had adisdain for atheism/occultism, upheld his Christian faith, and hated Jews due to hisChristianity. 
Hitler’s involvement with the Church:
a) Hitler was baptized as Roman Catholic during infancy in Austria.
 
 b) As Hitler approached boyhood he attended a monastery school. (On his way toschool young Adolf daily observed a stone arch which was carved with themonastery’s coat of arms bearing a swastika.)c) Hitler was a communicant and an altar boy in the Catholic Church.d) As a young man he was confirmed as a “soldier of Christ.” His most ardent goalat the time was to become a priest. Hitler writes of his love for the church andclergy: “I had excellent opportunity to intoxicate myself with the solemn splendor of the brilliant church festivals. As was only natural, the abbot seemed to me, as thevillage priest had once seemed to my father, the highest and most desirable ideal.”-Adolf Hitler (Mein Kampf)e) Hitler was NEVER excommunicated nor condemned by his church. Matter of fact the Church felt he was JUST and “avenging for God” in attacking the Jews for they deemed the Semites the killers of Jesus.f) Hitler, Franco and Mussolini were given VETO power over whom the pope couldappoint as a bishop in Germany, Spain and Italy. In turn they surtaxed the Catholicsand gave the money to the Vatican. Hitler wrote a speech in which he talks aboutthis alliance, this is an excerpt: “The fact that the Vatican is concluding a treaty withthe new Germany means the acknowledgement of the National Socialist state by theCatholic Church. This treaty shows the whole world clearly and unequivocally thatthe assertion that National Socialism [Nazism] is hostile to religion is a lie.” Adolf Hitler, 22 July 1933, writing to the Nazi Partyg) Hitler worked CLOSELY with Pope Pius inconverting Germanic society and supporting thechurch. The Church absorbed Nazi ideals and preached them as part of their sermons in turn Hitler  placed Catholic teachings in public education. This photo depicts Hitler with Archbishop CesareOrsenigo, the papal nuncio in Berlin. It was takenOn April 20, 1939, when Orsenigo celebratedHitler’s birthday. The celebrations were initiated byPacelli (Pope Pius XII) and became a tradition.Each April 20, Cardinal Bertram of Berlin was tosend “warmest congratulations to the Fuhrer in thename of the bishops and the dioceses in Germanywith “fervent prayers which the Catholics of Germany are sending to heaven on their altars.” (If you would like to know moreabout the secret dealings of Hitler and the Pope I recommend you get a book titled:Hitler’s Pope: The Secret History of Pius XII, by John Cornwell)h) Due to Hitler’s involvement with the Church he began enacting doctrines of theChurch as law. He outlawed all abortion, raged a death war on all homosexuals,and demanded corporal punishment in schools and home. Many times Hitler addressed the church and promised that Germany would implement its teachings:
 
“The National Socialist State professes its allegiance to positive Christianity. It will be its honest endeavor to protect both the great Christian Confessions in their rights,to secure them from interference with their doctrines (Lehren), and in their duties toconstitute a harmony with the views and the exigencies of the State of today.” – Adolf Hitler, on 26 June 1934, to Catholic bishops to assure them that he wouldtake action against the new pagan propaganda “Providence has caused me to beCatholic, and I know therefore how to handle this Church.” -Adolf Hitler,reportedly to have said in Berlin in 1936 on the enmity of the Catholic Church to National Socialism 
How Christianity was the catalyst of the Holocaust:
Hitler’s anti-Semitism grew out of his Christian education. Austria and Germanywere majorly Christian during his time and they held the belief that Jews were aninferior status to Aryan Christians. The Christians blamed the Jews for the killingof Jesus. Jewish hatred did not actually spring from Hitler, it came from the preaching of Catholic priests and Protestant ministers throughout Germany for hundreds of years. The Protestant leader, Martin Luther, himself, held a livid hatredfor Jews and their Jewish religion. In his book, “On the Jews and their Lies,”Luther set the standard for Jewish hatred in Protestant Germany up until World War 2. Hitler expressed a great admiration for Martin Luther constantly quoting hisworks and beliefs. Now, you must remember before Hitler rose to Chancellor of Germany the countrywas in a deep economic depression due to the Versailles treaty. The Versaillestreaty demanded that Germans made financial reparations for the previous war andGermany simply was not self sufficient enough in order to pay the debt. Hitler wasthe leader that raised Germany out of the depression and brought them back to aworld recognized power. Due to his annulment of the financial woes of theGermanic people he became their redeemer and they anointed him as the leader of the German Reich Christian Church in 1933. This placed him in power of theGerman Christian Socialist movement which legislates their political and religiousagendas. It united all denominations, mainly the Protestant/Catholic and Lutheran people to instill faith in a national Christianity. 
How the Nazi Regime converted the people:
a) In the 1920s, Hitler’s German Workers’ Party (pre Nazi term) adopted a“Programme” with twenty-five points (the Nazi version of a constitution). In pointtwenty-four, their intent clearly demonstrates, from the very beginning, their standin favor of a “positive” Christianity: “We demand liberty for all religiousdenominations in the State, so far as they are not a danger to it and do not militateagainst the morality and moral sense of the German race. The Party, as such, standsfor positive Christianity, but does not bind itself in the matter of creed to any particular confession...”
