Yes, now you can blame the Christians for the Holy war, Crusades. Of course, those who carried this out did in the name of Christianity and they were not even christians. Hitler is also described as a Christian. If he were a Christian, why would he execute Bon hoefer, a Christian minister who opposed Hitler? Hitler was an atheist and he strongly believed in Evolution ( Aryans were the Superior race). He also hated Christians and Jews.
I like how Hitler couldn't be a Christian because a true Christian wouldn't kill another Christian. I guess it's ok that he killed all those Jews, Gays, and whatnot, but he definitely crossed the line with that Christian dissident.
It seems to me like Hitler's Aryan, or "Master Race" was almost the exact opposite of Evolution, in that the Aryans were simply at the top of a race hierarchy.
And what's his support for the killers in the Crusades not being Christians?
This kind of thinking (someone who does non-Christian things is not a Christian), if correct, means, oh, 99% of "Christians" are not really Christians.
I'd be cool with that. Unfortunately, a Christian is defined by one who believes in Christ, not one who follows his example. So, yes, your username is correct inkorrekt.
Seriously, fundies, it's okay for you to acknowledge that Hitler was a Christian (i.e., a person who claimed to believe in the divinity of Christ) and then to disavow him by saying that he was also an insane, evil tyrant whose maniacal views were utterly incompatible with Christlike teachings and behaviors.
That way, you still get to condemn him as an icon of evil (as any sensible person should) without having to twist and distort your entire perception of him just so you can try to link him somehow with atheists.
Of course, you needn't bother if you don't really care about the truth and just would rather use whatever salacious lie sounds most appropriate to you in attempting to smear those who are not Christians by trying to associate them with Hitler.
Either way, the choice is yours, but the first carries a measure of credibility, while the second carries the taint of deliberate falsehood -- a choice that, one cannot help but notice, is also very much at odds with Christlike teachings and behaviors.
Well, actually we're all athiests for the most part. Hitler and Inkorrekt just believe(d) in one more god than I do. Besides, everyone knows that Hitler was actually a Scotsman until the day he decided to put sugar on his porridge.

Um, maybe because he was a complete wackjob? Just throwing it out there. Besides, the overwhwlming evidence points to Hitler being a Christian. Look it up.
So were we! You can find all of this, and more, on Fundies Say the Darndest Things!
