Thank you for accepting the debate.

"The anti-Semitism of the new movement (Christian Social movement)
was based on religious ideas instead of racial knowledge."

[Adolf Hitler, "Mein Kampf", Vol. 1, Chapter 3]

"I believe today that I am acting in the sense of the Almighty
Creator. By warding off the Jews I am fighting for the Lord"s work."

[Adolph Hitler, Speech, Reichstag, 1936]

"I believe today that my conduct is in accordance with the will of
the Almighty Creator."

[Adolph Hitler, _Mein Kampf_, pp. 46]

"Once again the songs of the fatherland roared to the heavens along
the endless marching columns, and for the last time the Lord"s grace
smiled on His ungrateful children."

[Adolf Hitler, "Mein Kampf", Vol. 1, Chapter 7, reflecting on World
War I]

"I am now as before a Catholic and will always remain so"

[Adolph Hitler, to Gen. Gerhard Engel, 1941]

Your turn, and good luck!

Con

I would like to thank Pro for giving his arguments. It seems like my opponent is confused which side he's arguing. Nevertheless, I'm still going to argue for my side.

Since Pro's arguments are arguments that are supposed to be Con's, I will give him another chance by using his 2nd round arguments to be my arguments.

Also, I will provide the source of these quotes and letters from Hitler. So Pro's 2nd round arguments are pretty much my arguments (now with sources) for the second round.

Jesus himself said. " There are many out there that will call me Lord,but my Father will say to him, depart from me, for I never knew you."

To the instigator: Seeing your first argument, I am confused. Are you arguing that Hitler was in fact a christian or not? The debate topic being "Hitler was an Atheist, not a Christian", and you taking the pro stance, would imply you're trying to argue he was an atheist, yet your argument supports the opposite. Did you get things mixed up?

Every single Christian is a saint. Not every person in religions made out of Christianity are Christians, which means , " like Christ".And the word says " thou shalt not murder." I would kill anyone I caught raping my daughter. That would not be murder protecting yourself or another.The nation of Israel's best friend is the evangelistic Christian.Not those who think like Hitler.

@TheGayAtheist

It looks like you weren't very careful on the phrasing of this topic in general. Your opening round appears to be a very explicit argument in support of Hitler being Christian, which is the stance Con is supposed to take. Given the topic and your side in it, you should be arguing that Hitler WAS an Atheist, and that he is NOT a Christian. I'm not sure if you somehow believed your topic was the opposite of what you actually wrote, or if you thought you'd placed yourself on the side of Con, but you've practically given XLAV the debate.

So... no Christian has ever killed people, that's what you're saying? I understand that Jesus himself focused on healing, but that doesn't mean that every single Christian is a saint.

The proof is in the actions. Jesus said, there are those who call me Lord, but they are ravening wolves, and my Father will tell them, " depart from me , for I never knew you".You will know them by their fruits.Did you ever see Jesus kill people. Especially Jewish people.No.He healed and raised them from the dead.
