Catholicism of Hitler, Franco, Queipo (Angel Vinas, Belgium, 02/12/18 3:09 am)

Catholic Hitler, Franco, Mola. Queipo...

Yes, John, my comments of February 9th were meant in jest, although there are differences of course.

Hitler pursued the development of Germanic Christians, more Germanic than Christian; Franco sought refuge in the tender arms of the Church which provided him with invaluable support; Mola sought solace in bombing the Catholic Basques and Queipo, well, Queipo killed, and killed, and killed "bad Communists."

All of them splendid examples of the fervor of Ecclesia militante.

JE comments:  Hitler (alas) is one of the most written-about lives in human history.  Is there a definitive study of his religious beliefs?  The popular understanding is of Hitler as a Germanic neo-Pagan.  Didn't he say that religion is for weaklings, or something to the effect?

  • Nazism and Christianity (Tor Guimaraes, USA 02/13/18 7:15 AM)
    When someone tells me s(he) belongs to a particular religion, it means very little to me. After many years of observation, I concluded that only the person's behavior tells the truth about a person's religion.

    In the case of Hitler and the Nazis, their religion was paganism and Germanic mythology. Apparently Himmler was the high priest in charge of reviving any myths of racial superiority and heroism. They were stretching, begging, and stealing anything legitimate to support their crazy philosophy. They adopted Wagner as their musical hero, bastardized Friedrich Nietzsche's theory about the ubermensch to support their own.

    One thing is for sure, they had nothing to do with Christianity and actually got in trouble with the German people early on when they were tried to eliminate Christian doctrine from the German education system.

    JE comments:  For his part, wasn't Goebbels a practicing Catholic until the end?  Legend has it that in an earlier life, he "almost" became a priest.
