Adolf Hitler’s Anti-Christian Rants


I had an interesting talk today with somebody of Adolf Hitler and the Islamic State.  It inspired me to bring up some quotes by the Führer about our dear Christianity.  Most people know of Hitler’s anti-Jewish rhetoric, but not so many know about his anti-Christian rhetoric, thanks to the media and academia keeping it hush hush.  They are largely contained in a collection of letters called Tischrede (Table Talks).

Christianity and Bolshevism “are the invention of the Jew.” (p. 8)

“In the long run, National Socialism and religion will no longer be able to exist together.” (p. 8)

“The best thing is to let Christianity die a natural death.” (p. 48)

“The precepts ordering people to wash, to avoid certain drinks, to fast at appointed dates, to take exercise, to rise with the sun, to climb to the top of the minaret—all these were obligations invented by intelligent people.” (p. 48)

“Observe, by the way, … the Mussulman was promised a paradise peopled with houris, [virgins] where wine flowed in streams—a real earthly paradise.” (p. 48)

Regarding the afterlife, “Christianity, … has reached a peak of absurdity in this respect.” (p. 49)

“The dogma of Christianity gets worn away before the advances of science.  Religion will have to make more and more concessions.  Gradually myths crumble.” (p. 71)

“When all is said, we have no reason to wish that the Italians and Spaniards should free themselves from the drug of Christianity.  Let’s be the only people who are immunized against the disease.” (p. 60)

“Yet Rome today allows itself to reproach Bolshevism with having destroyed the Christian churches!  As if Christianity hadn’t behaved in the same way towards the pagan temples.” (p. 60)

“Today, when Christianity is tottering, the Jews restore to its pride of place Christianity in its Bolshevistic form.” (p. 62)

“One day finally, under the battering ram of science, dogma will collapse.” (p. 67)

“How else would the Church earn her living, if not by the sins of the faithful?” (p. 70)

“Indulgence, at a tariff, supplies the Church with her daily bread.  As for the fruits of sin, the soul that fears limbo is a candidate for baptism, that is to say, another customer and so business goes on!” (p. 70)

“In Austria, Protestantism was free of all bigotry.  It was truly a movement of protest against Catholicism.  Moreover, these Protestants were entirely devoted to the German cause.” (p. 70)

“Every marriage concluded as the result of a divorce is regarded by the Church as living in sin.  The result of that, in Austria, for example, nobody cares about the commandments of the Church.  From this point of view, Austria was in advance of Germany.” (p. 71)

The Church “is based on lies.” (p. 71)

“Christianity is an invention of sick brains: … A negro with his tabus is crushingly superior to the human being who seriously believes in Transubstantiation.” (p. 111)

“I begin to lose all respect for humanity when I think that some people on our side, Ministers or generals, are capable of believing we cannot triumph without the blessing of the Church.  Such a notion is excusable in little children who have learnt nothing else.” (p. 111)

“But a pope, even a criminal one, who protects great artists and spreads beauty around him, is nevertheless more sympathetic to me than the Protestant minister who drinks from the poisoned spring.” (p. 112)

It is the “Jew who fraudulently introduced Christianity into the ancient world—in order to ruin it—[…].” (p. 238)

“And those repulsive priests, when they question a child of seven in the confessional, it’s they themselves who incite it to sin.” (p. 242)

“The biretta!  The mere sight of one of these abortions in cassocks makes me wild!” (p. 244)

“The priests of antiquity were closer to nature, … Instead of that, Christianity promulgates its inconsistent dogmas and imposes them by force.” (p. 244)

“Since my fourteenth year I have felt liberated from the superstition that the priests used to teach.” (p. 246)

“Dogma cannot resist the ceaselessly renews attacks of the spirit of free enquiry.” (p. 254)

“It is very curious that devout Christians like the British and the Americans should, … receive such a series of hidings from the pagan Japanese! … It is not surprising that this should be so, for the religion of the Japanese is above all the cult of heroism, and its heroes are those who do not hesitate to sacrifice their lives for the glory and safety of their country.  The Christians, on the other hand, prefer to honor the Saints, that is to say, a man who succeeds in standing on one leg for years at a time, … There is something very unhealthy about Christianity.” (p. 315)

“Another peculiarity of the Christian faith, as is taught by the Catholic Church, is that it is a school of pessimism rather than of optimism.  The Japanese religion, on the contrary, rouses men to enthusiasm by the promise it holds of the rewards in the Hereafter, …” (p. 315)

“When one examines the Catholic religion closely, one cannot fail to realize that in it is an almost incredibly cunning mixture of hypocrisy and business acumen, …” (p. 316)

“It is inconceivable that an educated priest should really believe all the nonsense that the Church pours out; … the priests themselves always try to confuse the issue on the subject of the swindle of dispensations, and avoid whenever possible any discussion on the subject.” (p. 316)

“Had Charles Martel not been victorious at Poitiers—[…]—-then we should all have been converted to Mohammedanism, that cult which glorifies heroism and which opens the seventh Heaven to the bold warrior alone. Then the Germanic races would have conquered the world. Christianity alone prevented them from doing so.” (p. 504)

“The religion fabricated by Paul of Tarsus, which was later called Christianity, is nothing but the Communism of today.” (p. 548)

“The Catholic Church is remarkable for its organization and ridiculous in its dogmas.” (p. 571)
