Christianity and the Holocaust

The Holocaust did not come out of nowhere. It was not a random choice that the Jews were selected as the targets. The Holocaust was the climax of a thousand years of killing and persecution by the Christians.

The belief of the German people in national socialism is surely a warning against belief systems in general, and a reminder of the value of scepticism. I fear, unfortunately, that this is not a very widely drawn lesson.

Hitler was a Catholic:

The text reads: "When you see a cross, then think of the horrible murder by the Jews on Golgotha ..."

Summary - The Catholic church was neutral in WW2

"Hitler: The Atheist (Quiz Show)" by "NonStampCollector" makes some really serious points.

The Catholic church, had it taken a strong moral position early and held it, could have stopped the Holocaust. The Nazis would have backed down. They would have contented themselves with just discrimination against the Jews, not mass killing.

But the church did not. Because the churches do not just stand for good and against evil. That would be "naive" and "simplistic".


Catholic Ireland was neutral in World War 2

Taoiseach Eamon de Valera calls to the German Embassy in Dublin, 2 May 1945, to offer condolences on the death of Adolf Hitler.
Irish Times, May 3, 1945.

President Douglas Hyde also expressed his condolences on the death of Hitler.
Irish Press, May 4, 1945.
Hyde also visited the Nazi ambassador personally.

The Nazi flag flew here all during the Holocaust.
This is 58 Northumberland Rd, Dublin, which was the Nazi German embassy in WW2.
It is now the innocent Northumberland Institute of Dental Medicine.
From street view.

A disgusting editorial in the Meath Chronicle, May 5, 1945, on the deaths of Roosevelt, Mussolini and Hitler, sums up the amoral world of Irish neutrality.

"There is one thing that Germany did, and that was to rout the Jews out of their country. Until we rout the Jews out of this country it does not matter a hair's breadth what orders you make. Where the bees are there is the honey, and where the Jews are there is the money."
- Catholic fundamentalist Oliver J. Flanagan in the Dail, 9 July 1943, as Jewish families are being murdered on an industrial scale across Europe by the Germans.

"May God welcome in His mercy the soul of the illustrious deceased".
- The Vatican on the death of Arafat in 2004.
When Hitler died in 1945, the Catholic church ordered a requiem mass to be said in all churches for his soul, that Hitler be admitted to paradise.
Having learnt nothing from WW2, in 2004 the Vatican prays that the great Jew-killer of the modern age, Yasser Arafat, be admitted to paradise.
