Just posted this on the LifeBite site. I highly doubt it will be published, so here it is in full:

Interesting article.

But have you read "Mein Kampf", by Adolf Hitler?

It refers to "atheists" - twice, in fact.

On one occasion, it refers to "atheist Marxist newspapers" and on another, "atheistic Jews".

Also, in both passages, Hitler is fulsome in his praise for Christianity.

I hope you don't mind me quoting the passages at length.

The demonstrate pretty clearly what Hitler thought about atheism: not much.

And what he thought about Christianity: a lot.

First quote:

In recent years things have gone so far that patriotic circles, in god-forsaken blindness of their religious strife, could not recognize
the folly of their conduct even from the fact that atheist Marxist newspapers advocated the cause of one religious denomination or the
other, according as it suited Marxist interests, so as to create confusion through slogans and declarations which were often immeasurably
stupid, now molesting the one party and again the other, and thus poking the fire to keep the blaze at its highest.

But in the case of a people like the Germans, whose history has so often shown them capable of fighting for phantoms to the point of complete
exhaustion, every war-cry is a mortal danger. By these slogans our people have often been drawn away from the real problems of their existence. While we were exhausting our energies in religious wars the others were acquiring their share of the world. And while the patriotic
movement is debating with itself whether the ultramontane danger be greater than the Jewish, or vice versa, the Jew is destroying the racial
basis of our existence and thereby annihilating our people. As far as regards that kind of 'patriotic' warrior, on behalf of the National
Socialist Movement and therefore of the German people I pray with all my heart: "Lord, preserve us from such friends, and then we can easily deal
with our enemies."

Second quote:

"But at that time Christ was nailed to the
Cross for his attitude towards the Jews; whereas our modern Christians enter into party politics and when elections are being held they debase
themselves to beg for Jewish votes. They even enter into political intrigues with the atheistic Jewish parties against the interests of
their own Christian nation."
