  • Catholic I believe.

  • I think he was more Catholic if anything. But close enough.

  • I thought he was a protestant

  • His right hand men (the waffen SS) were all required to be christian.

  • Yes. He proclaimed his Christian faith many times. It doesn't matter what awful things he did and believed in, he was a Christian.

  • Several of his actions were directly from the bible. Modern Christians totally ignore that it says to kill gay people, and basically anyone outside what is considered to be "normal". In that case, Hitler was more of a Christian than your local priest. -The Atheist

  • He may have called himself a Christian, but his actions show that he truly was not.

  • If Hitler was a christian why would he kill so many. It's a sin that will cause you to go to hell which, no christian wants.

  • Well, he may have started as a Christian, but started making a cult dedicated to himself. Also, the persecution of actual Christians effectively ended whatever claims to Christianity that he may have had.

@Bob13 "He may have called himself a Christian, but his actions show that he truly was not." - Surely if the Church gave it's blessings to him he was doing their and Gods work?

@Kreakin that is a good point, but don't you think that they may have done that so they did not have to be sentance to death? (Just curious)

Bob13: Who gave you the right to determine who is Christian and who is not?
Thescarecrow066 says2015-09-15T00:17:57.2602201Z
Hitler may have called himself a christian but im pretty sure from all the actions he did he should not be considered a christian, also whats the point of this..
Bob13 says2015-09-15T00:25:27.4877641Z
@komododragon8 no one gave me the right. I just know what a Christian is.
komododragon8 says2015-09-15T01:24:48.5598713Z
Bob13: And what if some other christian disagrees.

Everyone voting 'no' is resorting to the "No True Scotsman" fallacy as usual. How does the fact that Hitler was a terrible person somehow exclude him for being a Christian, which he claimed to be many times? You can't cherry pick what kinds of people you feel are apart of your religious belief system because you don't like what they do.

Yes Hitler was raised Catholic. The oaths sworn by the troops were under god and the belt buckles said, Gott mit uns or under God. " Ich schwöre bei Gott diesen heiligen allmächtigen Eid : Ich werde jederzeit loyal und ehrlich dienen mein Volk und Land und als tapferer Soldat , Ich werde jederzeit bereit sein, zu dem Spiel meines Lebens für diesen Eid . " or " " I swear ," I swear by God this sacred oath Almighty : I will at all times faithfully and honestly Serve my people and country and as a brave soldier , I'll be ready at any time for the game of my life for this oath . " By God Almighty this sacred oath : I will at all times loyal and honest serve my people and country and as a brave soldier , I'll always be ready , for the game of my life for this oath . "

Bob13 Hitler would most certainly not be the first proclaimed Christian to perform atrocities. No the last I fear.

Triangle 128 If you are going to try to implement logical fallacies, know what they are and when to use them, "no true Scots man" is not logical in my case or for my statement and here is why, [study ethics or debating before you just grab a fallacy out of the air you look dim]. The no true scotsman fallacy is a way of reinterpreting evidence in order to prevent the refutation of one’s position. Proposed counter-examples to a theory are dismissed as irrelevant solely because they are counter-examples, but purportedly because they are not what the theory is about.

"The attitude of the Nazi party to the Catholic Church ranged from tolerance, to near total renunciation and outright aggression. Bullock wrote that Hitler had some regard for the organisational power of Catholicism, but utter contempt for its central teachings, which he said, if taken to their conclusion, "would mean the systematic cultivation of the human failure". Many Nazis were anti-clerical in both private and public life. The Nazi party had decidedly pagan elements. One position is that the Church and fascism could never have a lasting connection because both are a "holistic Weltanschauung" claiming the whole of the person. Adolf Hitler himself has been described as a "spiritualist" by Laqueur; but by Bullock as a "rationalist" and "materialist" with no appreciation of the spiritual side of humanity; and a simple "atheist" by Blainey. His Fascist comrade Benito Mussolini was an atheist. Both were anticlerical, but understood that it would be rash to begin their Kulturkampfs against Catholicism prematurely. Such a clash, possibly inevitable in the future, was put off while they dealt with other enemies."

@chandlerrouse I wasn't using that logical fallacy against you, I was referring to the people who claim Hitler wasn't Christian -_-
chandlerrouse says2015-09-15T03:50:27.2910490Z
My point about Christian killings TRIANGLE 128 k: Crusades, Inquisitions. Charlemagne, Pagans, Heretics, Witches, religious wars, Jews, Native People, Rwanda Massacres. So your "No True Scotsman fallacy is a fallacy in of itself
chandlerrouse says2015-09-15T03:53:38.9538776Z
Petersmith that is irrelevant because the country believed he was doing his quest under god, I think I know more first hand than non-credible source Wikipedia being that I was born and raised in Germany >
PetersSmith says2015-09-15T03:59:34.9475777Z
Chandlerrouse: I think it gives people a relative gist of what Hitler was trying to implement. I think that Germany, or more specifically under the Nazi regime, was not catholic rather a Protestant moralist state. Hitler seemed to be somewhat "questionable" in regards to his faith, and thus used "Positive Christianity" as a unifier, even though it's unlikely he actually believed in it himself (much like how he originally used "socialism" in his preaches to rally more supporters).
chandlerrouse says2015-09-15T04:10:33.7524697Z
Peter It wasn't "socialism" It was Nationalism and fascism. It really is a shame your Wikipedia give you incorrect information about a war of 70 years ago that you are absolutely clueless about.Germany was already socialist *expletive*. Hitler had no interesting bringing about an inclusive economy or a state centralized system that would benefit the people he was a pre Cheney terrorist that did not give a shit about the German people since he was not German himself.So Although you THINK you are a Rhode scholar, you are not, you are just a deflated debater.
PetersSmith says2015-09-15T04:14:14.7321357Z
Chandlerrouse: I said that he was "pretending" to be a socialist to garner more votes when he was first starting out. "We are socialists, we are enemies of today’s capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions." -Adolf Hitler, 1927.
PetersSmith says2015-09-15T04:15:55.2611133Z
Chandlerrouse: And I never said I was a "Rhode scholar", nor did I admit to not being a deflated debater.

Not true at all, many people with intellectual disabilities are acutely aware of it.
