Hitler And Christianity

Hitler commented of Minister of Religion Kerrl’s effort
to identify Nazism with "positive Christianity" that it
was "the noblest of intentions, but I don't believe
the thing's possible,

and I see the obstacle in Christianity itself."

"As for the men close to me", he stated, "who, like me,
have escaped from the clutches of dogma, I've no reason
to fear that the Church will get its hands on them.
We'll see to it that the church cannot spread abroad
teachings that conflict with the interests of the State.
We shall continue to preach the doctrine of
National Socialism, and the young will no longer be

taught anything but the truth."

"In the long run National Socialism and religion will
no longer be able to exist together.
The ideal solution would be to leave the religions to

devour themselves, without persecutions."

"The dogma of Christianity gets worn away before the
advances of science. Religion has to make more and

more concessions. Gradually the myths crumble."
