Watching “Insiders” on the ABC in the 9am timeslot this morning ( 5th October 2014), I couldn’t help but notice the host Barrie Cassidy slide the boot firmly into the Catholics yet again as he interrupted the conversation to observe “Hitler was a Catholic” ! . lol. Only the ABC, ( Australian Broadcasting Commission) gets away with such blatant and malicious attacks on the Catholic community that they have developed a reputation for it.
For the record and for those who don’t know…
Hitler was born to a practising Catholic mother and an anticlerical father, but after leaving home Hitler never again attended Mass or received the sacraments. Speerstates that Hitler made harsh pronouncements against the church to his political associates and though he never officially left it, he had no attachment to it. He adds that Hitler felt that in the absence of the church the faithful would turn to mysticism, which he considered a step backwards. According to Speer, Hitler believed that either Japanese religious beliefs or Islam would have been a more suitable religion for the Germans than Christianity, with its “meekness and flabbiness”.
Straight from the wikipedia.
The nazis murdered many priests and the nazi regime barrickaded Rome during World War 2. Look up the life of St. Maximillian Kolbe to discover how the nazis treated Catholic clergy.
Nice try Barry, but Hitler was no Catholic. He was raised as one but it clearly didn’t take.
