spmccullagh claims "@Richard - Your fatal mistake is the use of the term Roman Catholic in relation to Hitler without the use of inverted commas...."

Not one senior RC Nazi was ever excommunicated by the RCC for what they did. As far as I can make out no member of the Nazi party at all, ever, was ex-communicated by the RCC for Nazism. The only senior Nazi ex-communicated was because he was divorced (IIRC). Not much of a sin is it in comoparison with what the Nazis did to Europe?

Christianity is deeply culpable in the holocaust and Nazism. The RCC was in bed with most of the fascist regimes in Europe in the 20s and 30s. Germany was a deeply Christian country during the 20s and 30s.

I think you need to look in a mirror before screaming that others have a warped agenda.
