Hitler was no Christian, Tariq

Reader comment on item: Sudden Jihad Syndrome (in North Carolina)
in response to reader comment: Depends on Perspective

First, Hitler was a neo-pagan who wanted to establish a neo-pagan state (Aryan). Just because a person is born into or raised in any religeous denomination doesn't mean they belong to it. I'm sure you've heard of apostasy (your own cute little justification for murder). If Adolf Hitler walked into a church he'd be struck by lightning.

Second, nothing he ever did or said was in support of an ambition to promote Christianity. His one and only loyalty was to the Third Reich, peopled by Aryans. Christians had no place in his vision of the future.

Calling Hitler a Christian is one of the oldest, lamest arguments still floating around in the Muslim world.
