“Even in our own lifetime, we can recall how Britain and her leaders stood against a Nazi tyranny that wished to eradicate God from society and denied our common humanity to many, especially the Jews, who were thought unfit to live. I also recall the regime's attitude to Christian pastors and religious who spoke the truth in love, opposed the Nazis and paid for that opposition with their lives. As we reflect on the sobering lessons of the atheist extremism of the twentieth century, let us never forget how the exclusion of God, religion and virtue from public life leads ultimately to a truncated vision of man and of society and thus to a "reductive vision of the person and his destiny". [RAT-zingers first propaganda speech on English soil]
Who the fuck is this lying creep RAT-zinger trying to kid, eh?
Fact One: The wartime leader of England, Winston Churchill was an atheist.
Fact Two: The Vatican signed a treaty with Nazi Germany. The reigning pope at the time did at best ‘nothing’ to stop fascism or the murder of Jews.
Fact Three: Both Joseph (as in Goebbels) RAT-zinger and his brother, Georg - also a Catholic priest - were card-carrying Nazi’s and swore allegiance to Adolf Hitler. Georg was injured fighting against the Allies!
Fact Four: According to the last Germany census prior to WW2 less than 5 per cent of the population identified themselves as atheists.
Fact Five: All the European WW2 fascist dictators were Catholic including of course Hitler.
"I am now as before a Catholic and will always remain so" [Adolph Hitler, to General . Gerhard Engel, 1941]
Fact Six: Adolf Hitler believed in God and hated atheists and espoused as much in his manifesto Mein Kampf. Do these words look to you like those of an atheist?
“I believe today that my conduct is in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator”
“We must pray to the Almighty not to refuse His blessing to this change and not to abandon our people in the times to come”
"My feelings as a Christian points me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter. It points me to the man who once in loneliness, surrounded by a few followers, recognized these Jews for what they were and summoned men to fight against them and who, God's truth!”
"This human world of ours would be inconceivable without the practical existence of a religious belief."
“Anyone who dares to lay hands on the highest image of the Lord commits sacrilege against the benevolent creator of this miracle and contributes to the expulsion from paradise."
Fact Seven: The Catholic Church stands tall as the age-old leader in anti-Semitic practices.
Fact Eight: Hitler loved using the term "destiny" as well.
Fact Nine: Even in his own autobiography RAT-zinger himself admitted the early victories Germany experienced in WW2 filled himself and his family with patriotic pride.
Fact Ten: In 1944 RAT-zinger watched Hungarian Jews being loaded into cattle-trucks on their way to be gassed at Auschwitz (Time Magazine Interview 6th December 1993) and did nothing to stop the greatest crime in the history of humanity.
Pope Bene-Dick XVI - you are nothing but a lying piece of shit.
