Radesq asks:

Even Jews, Homosexuals and Roma? Why did he want to kill them so much then?

Yes, Hitler believed that Jews and other "lesser" races were created by God, but separately as races that were distinct from the Aryan. He killed them because he wanted to prevent them interbreeding with the Aryans, which would defile "God's highest handiwork" and would thus be a blasphemy against God. Thus he thought that a "higher purpose" was to protect the Aryans by eradicating lesser races. See Mein Kampf for an extended account of all of this.
