Skip to comments.Nazis: Socialists and pagans (Liberals deny they were socialists, teach they were Christian!)

While Adolf Hitler was careful at first to conceal his neo-pagan agenda, his followers were not: Heinrich Himmler created the SS explicitly as a pagan parody of the Society of Jesus, conducted extensive research attempting to rehabilitate medieval witchcraft, and held torchlit liturgies to Odin and other Norse gods. Hitlers ideologist, Alfred Rosenberg, issued tracts denouncing the Gospels. Josef Goebbels aspired to wipe out "after the last Jew, the last priest." Hitlers ally, General Erich Ludendorff, called for the abolition of Christianity in Germany. By 1936, Hitler was suppressing Catholic trade unions, movements and schools, and forming amongst Protestants a militaristic "German Christian" church that would sanction the regimes savage anti-Semitism. Hitler opined to Albert Speer that he wished Germany had been converted to Islam instead of Christianity, the better to suit it to ruthless warfare.
Some of the more impressive scenarios place you in missions based in bombed-out European cities, Alpine Mountains and they even work in some haunted catacombs. Lots of fun.
Believe me, it was not my intent to tarnish the horrendous martyrdom of Russian Christians, many millions of whom died awful deaths for their faith. If you got that impression, I apologize for the confusion.
The Russian Orthodox Church (and other Christian Churches in the Soviet Union) suffered atrocities of such magnitude, it is still beyond comprehension to the majority of the West. These souls no doubt represent a large percentage of the martyred and precious saints we will see someday in Heaven. Likewise, the Bolsheviks and Communists will form a mighty legion of The Damned in Hell and deserve the fate they gave the Saints on earth.
My point was, the organized church can be coopted by the State and used for it's own nefarious ends. These evil ends should not reflect on the True Believers who have no part in them and no control. A previous poster intimated that many were 'christians' who followed Hitler and the Nazis. My point is, they were 'christians' (cultural or deluded christians, if you will) in name only for the most part. It was the demonically-inspired State and their theological toadies in the compliant or conterfeit churches that give their bad name to the real Saints and the genuine Church. It is no different than what is going on today.
"You can pray freely.
"But just so God alone can hear."
Tanya Khodkevich.(She received a Tenner for those verses.)
Also, remember that it was Bill klinton who ordered American military chaplains to not preach against abortion in their sermons. Another example of klintonian thought control, and his deep and abiding contempt for both the military, and and religion he could could not make subservient to him.
Bill and Hitlery are stalinists.
Won't dispute that but The Klintoons are just trashy Xtians. Every religion has them.
The klintons are trashy everything.
There are apostates in the church today, just waiting to be used by whatever top brass is in charge, even Satan himself. We are even warned in scriptures that many members of the latter day churches will be apostate. It is certainly something to keep in mind as we see more and more ready to lay down the divenity of Chirst in order to fit in under the umbrealla of acceptable worldly religion.
