Plenty of cults exist - every cult has its 'religious dogma', its idols, its 'prophets', its 'science', its 'proof' and its intolerant liturgy of demands. Cults everywhere: Islam, the State, the cult of Gay and Queer, Marxism, Darwin and Evolution, 'Science', Globaloneywarming, Changing Climate, Abortion....a nice variety for the human-hater, amoral, anti-rationalist to choose from. It is so much fun mocking them isn't it ?
Tempus Fugit Memento Mori - Time Flies Remember Death
The Nazis were a Marxist-Fascist cult dedicated to state power, racial Darwinism and the eradication of both the Jewish and Christian churches. They were the embodiment of Darwinian theology. A cursory reading of Nazi history makes this obvious. For Hitler and his pagan barbarians Christianity was just another Jewish 'invention', 'sold' by the Jews, Jesus and Paul. He called it the greatest disease ever imported into Germany.
Professor John Conway in his seminal work, 'The Nazi Persecution of the Churches' noted that the Nazi party fully understood the challenge that the Church posed to their power. Not only was Jewry to be eliminated in the Greater Reich, but so too was the Church. The Church with its anti-evolutionary stance was pronounced 'anti-science' by the Nazis. This should sound familiar to modern ears in regards to fish-to-men dogma, or the cant that a trace chemical causes weather. Other slogans such as “Politics do not belong in the Church” and “The Church must be separate from the State” permeate Nazi dogma. It was clear that the Nazis regarded the Church as an obstacle, and part of the Jewish problem. Hitler said many times that he must crush the Church and establish a Nazi-Reich church in its place.
During the 1930s and the war itself some 5 million Catholics were killed in the extermination camps. Barracks were specially erected for the Catholic clergy and leadership. Mein Kampf replaced the bible within Catholic churches in 1942; and Catholic mass ritual was replaced with Nazi propaganda. Basically any Catholic who opposed the Nazi regime was killed off. So much for the idea that Hitler, a man who was never confirmed in the Church, was some variety of ardent Christian. Such an idea is so inane that anyone possessing it needs medication and a serious education. Reading Conway's book will help in that regard.
