    “You see, it’s been our misfortune to have the wrong religion. Why didn’t we have the religion of the Japanese, who regard sacrifice for the Fatherland as the highest good? The Mohammedan religion too would have been much more compatible to us than Christianity. Why did it have to be Christianity with its meekness and flabbiness?"

    Non the less, Hitler was a Christian. To quote someone else, "When you believe in absurdities, you can commit atrocities!"

    Every religon is different, (and the same), and thats the way it should be.
    if they were all the same then we wouldn't be living on a planet with free thinking

    I have seen similar quotes linking him to Christianity. The question becomes, when did he say certain things and why? In other words, if he said certain things in public, then he has to be careful of what he says. For example, the dominate religion in Germany was Christianity, so it would behoove him to say favorable things about it. However, if he was among "friends", then he is more likely to say what he believes. Many would dismiss him as a madman, thus dismissing whatever he says. However, he certainly was sane enough to take over Germany and most of Europe and the former USSR. He definatly had a plan and a philosophy by which he accopmlished these things and judging from his actions, I would say that this quote is more in line with his thinking. In fact, we even see madmen today do we not who threaten to throw the Zionists into the Mediterranian and refer to them as a cancer. So if you are a person of conquest, you should then adopt a religion that best suites this objective.

    What makes one mad? In addition, what makes them insignificant enough to dismiss what they have to say altogether?

    Off the top of my head I'd say it is believing in lies that makes the one mad.

    Why would one consider what a mad man like Hitler had to say as significant?

    Are you serious?

    Seems to be the problem. Folks don't know the difference between the truth and a lie anymore. So they default to relativism.

    No, I'm actually trying to get a civilized conversation out of this. I'm completely serious.
