I know, I know... Not this again. I'm sure you all are as sick of hearing this lame-ass defense as I am. However,I recently came across a new spin (new to me) on the Hitler debate. Here is what I encountered posted on a Christian forum in response to one of my posts:

 

In 1998 documents were released by Cornell University from the Nuremberg Trials that revealed Nazi plans to exterminate Christianity at the end of World War II The documents cover the Nuremberg trials of leading Nazis and demonstrate the deliberate genocide of Jews during the Holocaust, in which some six million Jews were killed. One senior member of the U.S. prosecution team, General William Donovan, as part of his work on documenting Nazi war crimes, compiled large amounts of documentation that the Nazis also planned to systematically destroy Christianity.

 

The defense is that Hitler secretly hated Christianity and, despite fairly extensive historical documentation where Hitler expresses his belief in the Christian god, his public support of Christian ideals was all just a well-calculated ruse to rid Germany of Christianity, thus Hitler couldn’t possibly have been a Christian (Catholic… for you fussy-types).

 

Upon investigating this further, this has become a very popular response. Has anyone encountered this before or even read the documents for themselves? Thoughts, comments, insight? No doubt there is more to this than what was posted (in terms of omitted detail).
