That's true, too; I figured that by the OP title.
Being half German, and in one of those moods , I let it slip. Defensive about my ancestry, you know.
Thanks for your cordiality.
Reminds me of Fawlty Towers.....(somehow). The other half of me is English, Scottish, Irish, Welsh, Polish, Russian, and Finnish. Go figure.
the problem with your theory is that he killed millions of people i dont think he was truly in line with GODS heart
The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, with every secret thing, whether good or evil.
For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.
We have all become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment. We all fade like a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.

You don't have to prove Hitler was influenced by Christianity to do that. You merely need to show where his ideas did, in fact, come from. I can see the "Jews as the inferior people" bit coming from Catholicism, but that neither explains his "survival of the fittest" ideas nor his belief that Aryans constituted a superior race. That idea might be traced back to scientific racism which was an idea that floated around before Darwin (although the idea of evolution was also a pre-Darwinian one.) It seems reasonable to believe that Darwin, however indirectly, influenced Hitler every bit as much as Christianity did (which, you've conceded, is not very much.)
Historians believe that the evidence shows he was more of a materialist and that he hated Christianity, actually.
If you had read the link I had posted, I'm not sure you'd hold those views

Stalin Mao Pol Pot all wonderful proclaimed atheists who killed more than all religions put together, though I do think atheism is a religion.
So lets not play the blame game, lets learn from the past and reflecton what we can do
