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:

Summary - The Catholic church was neutral in WW2

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

1941-45: Pope Benedict XVI serves in the Hitler Youth and in the Nazi military.
2010: Pope Benedict XVI links atheists to Nazis: "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 ... 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".
Meme from here.

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".

De Valera's condolences for Hitler in 1945

Both the Taoiseach Eamon de Valera and the President Douglas Hyde offered condolences on the death of Hitler in 1945.

De Valera, a man with no moral compass, called to the Ambassador of Nazi Germany in Dublin, saying: "I certainly was not going to add to his humiliation in the hour of defeat." He threw away all goodwill from the victors of WW2 for years after the war. From a moral point of view it was unforgivable. And from a selfish, self-interest view it was also unforgivable! What an idiot.

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.

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.

Who I block on Twitter: I will debate almost anyone. I love ideas. I will not debate (and will block) people who: (a) target my job, (b) target my appearance, or: (c) libel me. Also, since 2016, abusive reporting has become a thing. I was targeted with abusive reporting by an Israel-hater pretending to be "Jewish". So I now also block: (d) any account that even hints that it reports its enemies, and: (e) any Israel-hater that claims to be Jewish. It is just self-defence.
