Unless he is a recent (and genuine) convert, Wahlberg is as much a follower of the Nazarene as the Profit Mohammed or that piece of dung Joel Osteen.  I shake the dust of them from my feet.

I don't recall anyone slagging Bono for his faith. In fact, he's usually spoken highly of for his charity work, and rightfully so.

And he's on the left politically.

Most of the criticism comes from the left.  They see Schultz and Bono as one of their own and are less likely to criticize them for their beliefs

Billions refer to themselves as "Christian" or "spiritual" or "religious".  The majority do nothing to represent Christ and are simply nominal Christians at best...it's an utterly meaningless association.    

Hitler was simpy disturbed and deranged.  

It matters not which "religion" he may have claimed to associate with be it Christianity or Hinduism or Islam or Catholicism or Satanism.  Short story is, a representative of Christ he was not.....that he fully and completely demonstrated LOL.  

It matters not if a library full of signed, authenticated documents (by Hitler) was produced that indicated his association with a Christian organization or if a 6-hour documentary was unearthed that showed nothing but Hitler's extensive collection of "I Love Jesus" tshirts and Christmas sweaters or if his personal diary including 100,000 entries of, "Boy howdy I love Jesus!" was uncovered.  Simple fact is, Hitler did nothing to represent Christ or live his life according to the will and purposes of God.  

The connection folks attempt to make between Hitler and Christianity is laughable and displays nothing but simple ignorance on part of those attempting to make that connection.....that's not an insult either....ignorance is simply ignorance.

He was a nominal Christian as are billions of others.  Only difference between Hilter and the vast majority of other nominal Christians is he was also a lunatic.  As I said, he displayed no qualities of Christ or his divine purposes.....his life demonstrated the antithesis of Christ.   He may have been raised in a Christian home and associated with Christianity yet did nothing to represent Christ......association does not make a representative of Christ.   Love towards others and demonstration of the divine qualities of Christ does......Hitler had neither.....it's very straightforward.

You are such a retard.  Hitler was no more a follower of Jesus of Nazareth than you are an intelligent adult.  What a wanker you are.

Hitler was a good Christian.  Hitler’s anti-Semitism grew out of his Christian education.  Austria and Germany were majorly Christian during his time and they held the belief that Jews were an inferior status to Caucasian Christians.  The Christians blamed the Jews for the killing of Jesus.  Jewish hatred did not actually spring from Hitler, it came from the preaching of Catholic priests and Protestant ministers throughout Germany for hundreds of years.

a) Hitler was baptized as Roman Catholic during infancy in Austria.

b) As Hitler approached boyhood he attended a monastery school.  (On his way to school young Adolf daily observed a stone arch which was carved with the monastery’s coat of arms bearing a swastika.)

c) Hitler was a communicant and an altar boy in the Catholic Church.

d) As a young man he was confirmed as a “soldier of Christ.”  His most ardent goal at the time was to become a priest.  Hitler writes of his love for the church and clergy: “I had excellent opportunity to intoxicate myself with the solemn splendor of the brilliant church festivals.  As was only natural, the abbot seemed to me, as the village priest had once seemed to my father, the highest and most desirable ideal.”  -Adolf Hitler (Mein Kampf)

e) Hitler was NEVER excommunicated nor condemned by his church.  Matter of fact the Church felt he was JUST and “avenging for God” in attacking the Jews for they deemed the Semites the killers of Jesus.

f) Hitler, Franco and Mussolini were given VETO power over whom the pope could appoint as a bishop in Germany, Spain and Italy.  In turn they surtaxed the Catholics and gave the money to the Vatican.  Hitler wrote a speech in which he talks about this alliance, this is an excerpt: “The fact that the Vatican is concluding a treaty with the new Germany means the acknowledgement of the National Socialist state by the Catholic Church.  This treaty shows the whole world clearly and unequivocally that the assertion that National Socialism [Nazism] is hostile to religion is a lie.”  Adolf Hitler, 22 July 1933, writing to the Nazi Party

Hitler and the Popeg) Hitler worked CLOSELY with Pope Pius in converting Germanic society and supporting the church.  The Church absorbed Nazi ideals and preached them as part of their sermons in turn Hitler placed Catholic teachings in public education.  This photo depicts Hitler with Archbishop Cesare Orsenigo, the papal nuncio in Berlin.  It was taken On April 20, 1939, when Orsenigo celebrated Hitler’s birthday.  The celebrations were initiated by Pacelli (Pope Pius XII) and became a tradition.



Each April 20, Cardinal Bertram of Berlin was to send “warmest congratulations to the Fuhrer in the name of the bishops and the dioceses in Germany with “fervent prayers which the Catholics of Germany are sending to heaven on their altars.”  (If you would like to know more about the secret dealings of Hitler and the Pope I recommend you get a book titled: Hitler’s Pope: The Secret History of Pius XII, by John Cornwell)

h) Due to Hitler’s involvement with the Church he began enacting doctrines of the Church as law.  He outlawed all abortion, raged a death war on all homosexuals, and demanded corporal punishment in schools and home.  Many times Hitler addressed the church and promised that Germany would implement its teachings: “The National Socialist State professes its allegiance to positive Christianity.  It will be its honest endeavor to protect both the great Christian Confessions in their rights, to secure them from interference with their doctrines (Lehren), and in their duties to constitute a harmony with the views and the exigencies of the State of today.”  –Adolf Hitler, on 26 June 1934, to Catholic bishops to assure them that he would take action against the new pagan propaganda “Providence has caused me to be Catholic, and I know therefore how to handle this Church.”  -Adolf Hitler, reportedly to have said in Berlin in 1936 on the enmity of the Catholic Church to National Socialism

A good Catholic is not a Christian.  This is the truth.  But of course the truth evades you like water through a sieve.  You don't deserve respect.

Catholics are the original christians, you can play semantics all you like, but the terms are often used interchangeably.  Either way, that's just a red herring.  Hitler was as religious as they come.

Being religious and having a relationship with God aren't synonymous.

Hitler was demon-possessed.

Nope, you ignorant, rude little "man".  The original Christians were followers of the Christ, you know...  Jesus of Nazareth.  Catholicism is one of the bastardizations of men doing that which they do best, lie to line their own coffers.  But you already knew this and yet you still tried to pass off your crap as believable.

The message of Jesus is simple.  If you don't care for it, then try behaving like an adult and agree to disagree while being agreeable.  If not, go intercourse yourself you worthless pussy.  You are nothing but a misinformed moron bent upon spreading your misplaced hatred for the Christ and those that follow Him.  Other's here suffer your stupidity but I have been around such as you for most of my life and I have found that I no longer give a gnats poo about the state of your soul nor your childish behavior and find it a joy to put you in your place.

Behave.  Be civil.  Or continue to be stupid.  I'm hoping for the former but betting on the latter.  Aussie spazo.

I bet your mother doesn't even like, much less love, you.

My Mother loves me deeply, as I love her.  I have recently being doing some gardening at one of her rental properties.  She is an inspirational woman who was a career nurse who ended her career as a midwife.  Worked hard, had 5 kids and is an all around decent and kind women.

Then treat those with whom you have disagreements as though it were she.    This isn't an argument, this is me trying to teach you something, i.e., how to disagree and yet be agreeable.  As a friend used to say, it's one thing to learn something and quite another to be taught a lesson. 

Try learning for once.

Your mother sounds like a good person.  Unless it was she who taught you to hate the way you do, to be such a total prick to others, I suggest you emulate her.

Pretty sure you could safely add her brother Kirk to that list. It's really all he's known for anymore.
