Adolf Hitler: Secular Schools Cannot be Tolerated Secular schools can never be tolerated because such schools have no religious instruction, and a general moral instruction without a religious foundation is built on air; consequently, all character training and religion must be derived from faith …we need believing people. We have therefore undertaken the fight against the atheistic movement, and that not merely with a few theoretical declarations: we have stamped it out.
Its chief object is to win back former churchgoers and assist those who have not previously belonged to any religious congregation in obtaining church membership. The German Freethinkers League, which was swept away by the national revolution, was the largest of such organizations in Germany. A deeper reading reveals far greater complexity. At the same time, religion is also a cause of suffering. PS, Marx was religious as well and your attempts here are the fodder of typical Sunday School circle jerk lessons! Have you given up trying to find an historian from an accredited university who will back up your claim that Jesus never existed?
As I said before, you will not, because you cannot, because no such historian exists. End of story. Game over. This is just another perfect example of the groundless hearsay that circulates on atheist forums. I recommend this article click here regarding the Nazis and Christianity.

An excerpt:. Also within a year of the Nazis taking power, The Twenty-Five Theses of the German Religion, a conscious modeling of the twenty-five points of the Nazi program, was published in Germany. Thesis XV of that Nazi publication states:. Such a teaching is not only non-Germanic and non-German, it is immoral and nonreligious. Whoever preaches this menaces the morality of the people. A new answer has arisen as to what Christ and Christianity are: Adolph Hitler. We no longer believe in the Holy Ghost; we believe in the Holy Blood.
Your quotes about the Nazis being non-atheist are irrelevant because I never claimed that the nazis were atheists. My only claim is that they used Darwinian theory to justify the holocaust, and that they were very anti-Christian. Once again, communism was an officially atheist political system, and to deny this historical fact would be as silly as denying the historical fact of the American Civil War. I am going to call you out on this one, Jim.
The nazis and communists killed so many people because they had a worldview which said that human beings are souless and have no transcendent value because atheism denies that there is a transcendent. This is what the nazis did in their death camps and the communists in their gulags. The nazis were very anti-religious but not officially atheist as were the communists. But their view of the value of the human being was heavily influenced by atheist thought. This point is discussed in From Darwin to Hitler by R. Rummel a professor of modern european history.
Atheists DO place value on human life, as many do on all other life. Any atheists out there disagree?

Your million is relative to communism, not atheism. No references to atheism when researching communism, except on Christian websites. Nazis killed in the name of Arian racism, not atheism. These are historical facts, open and shut. Here is a link to the wikipedia post about state atheism. I am not suggesting that all atheists think that human life is worthless or that being an atheist makes you a killer.
What I am suggesting is that atheist philosophy was a crucial component of the most prolific killing sprees communist and nazi in all of human history. This can be seen in the comments made by the most important communist revolutionary of all, Vladimir Lenin. In , he said:. Also, I have mentioned the nazis and communists, but there is a third example of an atheist philosophy being involved in an historic killing spree mentioned in the above wikipedia post : The French Revolution. I have deleted the duplicate copies of your comment.
In the future, please just post a comment once, not on multiple locations on the website. How do you explain the Spanish Conquest of the Americas, the motivation being the spread of the Christian faith, resulting in approximately 15 million dead?
Nazism killed in the name of Neo-darwinianism- the old, the weak, the infirmed, the genetically impure should persist so that the fittest may survive. It is because atheists VALUE freedom from having to answer to a higher power for their deeds and words. This seems like a serious misunderstanding.

Hitler and Stalin did not do what they did because they were atheists. Hitler, as a matter of fact, may have been Catholic; certainly the state sponsored Catholic, since SS uniforms have numerous Catholic symbols on them. Regardless, the point is that nobody was killed for the sake of atheism.
Stalin was not executing people and setting up the Gulag to promote atheism.
On the other hand, millions have died in the name of religion. Catholics kill protestants and vice versa, Christians kill Jews, Muslims kill Jews, and now Jews are killing Muslims again. Religion has created an endlessly perpetuating cycle of hatred between these groups.
Atheism is unprejudiced and thus does not promote this hatred. Hitler may have been Catholic? Please provide a scholarly citation to back up this assertion. It is groundless. SS uniforms have numerous Catholic symbols on them?

Provide a scholarly citation for this groundless assertion. By the way, even if you could, it would mean nothing. Ozzy Osbourne has all sorts of Christian symbols like a huge crucifix on his strange outfit. Does this make him a Christian? Millions have died in the name of religion. Urban legend, nothing more. Please provide a scholarly citation for this. Atheism is unprejudiced?!
You and Danno place a value on human life? Congratulations for accepting this aspect of Judeo-Chrisitian morality. Scott whilst I appreciate that you are trying to defend religion on this topic, James is right to assert that millions have died because of religion.
