Now you are trolling.

Science seeks objectivity.

Kind of. I am not, by any stretch, saying Hitler was a believing Roman Catholic.

But he did put on a big show about being Catholic for the crowds. There are lots of photos of him having ceremonies in various churches, (going through the motions of) taking communion, etc.

Again, all theater.

And, yes, a number of Catholics were outspoken critics of Hitler, but there were also a fair number who went along with the whole thing.

There’s a number of interesting articles about it, sadly mostly with a strong anti-religion bend, but weed out the chaff:

In the 30’s Hitler fooled a lot of people including a lot of Americans. He was Time’s ‘Man of the Year’. Henry Ford was a big fan, etc.
But you cannot fool all of the people all of the time. The church was also instrumental in saving many from the holocaust.

I have another historical source regarding this as well if you need it.

Ford was not fooled by Hitler, he was an antisemite who helped spread the protocols of the elders of Zion.

Here is another source from someone who has no love for any religion. …

I said Henry Ford was a fan, I didn’t say he was fooled.


#369

You did say he fooled a lot of Americans prior to mentioning Ford and Time magazine.

Yes, so?

I’m sorry, I sometimes forget your English is terrible at times.

And Hitler fooled no one. Mein kampf wasn’t exactly ambiguous.
