Comment 13 by spmccullagh @Richard - Your fatal mistake is the use of the term Roman Catholic in relation to Hitler without the use of inverted commas. To suggest that such acts are in any way associated with religious teaching in such a blatant fashion is an outrage. So, if his actions are not rooted in Catholicism, then where are they rooted? Perhaps the twisted morals of someone who had fallen away from Church teaching to adopt his own Godless warped agenda.

Actually Richard did not say Hitler's actions were motivated by his "Catholicism", he was merely pointing out that Ratzinger had misrepresented atheists and atheism by falsely equating them with Nazism, which is completely historically inaccurate.
