The thing is, the context was I was replying to someone who insisted he was an atheist because of the deeds he did. [Suggesting no Christian could do harm and that only atheists could do such deeds]

I would reply with all the heinous acts of Christian people. (priest raping, that minister who killed his fiancés daughter recently, the many wars of the bible, etc, etc.). Then ask, what's your point? Even IF Hitler was an atheist, there is still no point. Correlation is not causation, and all that. Smile

ETA the issue isn't proving Hitler as atheist or believing, it's in pointing out that his crime and his belief are not of relation.

Tha's a nae true Scotsman fallacy laddie!

Hitler was raised Catholic, and never was excommunicated from the church. Possibly because he didn't perform abortions and embraced anti-semitism, a practice of the Church at the time.

RE: Hitler wasn't a Christian?
Of course he wasn't excommunicated, the Catholic church did NOTHING during ww2 and more specifically the events of the holocaust.
They knew but they chose to shut up and do nothing. One of many disgraceful acts in the Catholic Church's history, all in the name of "god"...

I do not know of his political ideals, nor am I really concerned, but he is a German.

It only makes sense to learn as much as you can about a source of national shame.

RE: Hitler wasn't a Christian?
I've never been accosted by this particular argument before, but if I ever were to be, I'd like to have pictures of proof to hand out. Anything even remotely smacking of catholicism would be perfect. Why do I want "pictures" of proof? I assume the people making the 'Hilter was an Atheist' argument can't read more than a sentence or 2 before their heads hurt. That, and with their 2000 year long experience with the bible (a book full of shit), why trust fancy words anyway Undecided ?!? We need some pics!

Holy SHIT Laughat
U ain't joken!!!
Google "Hitler Catholic church" Now if we could only find some photo ops with AH & some protestant ministers, or Klan members all dressed up in sheets, I'd have something to throw in the face of Atheist-Hitler lovers in my birth state! The cardinals with their "hail Hitler" salutes make me want to laugh & weep at the same time!!
