Adolf Hitler…..The Good Christian:

Burn out the Poison of Immorality, The Christian Spirit and  Declining of Christianity in Europe is Dangerous

What did Adolf Hitler think about the relationship and relative values of Christianity vs. atheism? Although it’s popular for Christian apologists to portray Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party as the practical, evil consequences of atheism and secularism, the truth is that Adolf Hitler never had anything good to say about either atheism or secularism, but he regularly praised the importance of religion and religious faith generally as well as Christianity in particular”. (1)

“Despite how often Christian apologists try to argue that Adolf Hitler is an example of the evil caused by atheism and secularism, the truth is that Hitler often proclaimed his own Christianity, how much he valued Christianity, how important Christianity was to his life, and even how much he was personally inspired by Jesus – his “Lord and Savior.” There is plenty of evidence that he was critical of Christian churches for seeking independence from the state, but his vision of “Positive Christianity” was significant to him”. (2)

“By its decision to carry out the political and moral cleansing of our public life, the Government is creating and securing the conditions for a really deep and inner religious life. The advantages for the individual which may be derived from compromises with atheistic organizations do not compare in any way with the consequences which are visible in the destruction of our common religious and ethical values.” (3)

“A country that has been now since 1963 relentlessly in the courts driving God out of public life shouldn’t be surprised at all the problems we have. Because we’ve in fact attempted to create a secular country, which I think is frankly a nightmare”. (4)

“Today Christians … stand at the head of [this country]… I pledge that I never will tie myself to parties who want to destroy Christianity .. We want to fill our culture again with the Christian spirit … We want to burn out all the recent immoral developments in literature, in the theater, and in the press – in short, we want to burn out the poison of immorality which has entered into our whole life and culture as a result of liberal excess during the past … (few) years”. (5)

“While both denominations maintain missions in Asia and Africa in order to win new followers for their doctrine — an activity which can boast but very modest success compared to the advance of the Mohammedan faith in particular — right here in Europe they lose millions and millions of inward adherents who either are alien to all religious life or simply go their own ways. The consequences, particularly from a moral point of view, are not favorable”. (6)

“I believe that the Holy Bible is the inerrant Word of The Living God. I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the only One by which I can obtain salvation and have an ongoing relationship with God. I believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, the atoning work of His shed blood, His resurrection and ascension, His intercession and His coming return to power and glory. I believe that those who follow Jesus are family and there should be unity among all who claim His name”. (7)

“We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren’t punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That’s war. And this is war.” (8)

“Yes, religion and politics do mix. America is a nation based on biblical principles. Christian values dominate our government. The test of those values is the Bible. Politicians who do not use the bible to guide their public and private lives do not belong in office.” (9)

No One Showing Up to Bristol Palin’s Book Tour

A sad little item from the Washington Post reveals that for the once-infamous political daughter, abstinence spokeswoman, teen mom, and Dancing with the Stars contestant Bristol Palin, the fabled 15 minutes of fame may be coming to an end–at least until the next round of Palin family drama starts up.

You see, even though her Grizzly mama was a hot topic in DC this past weekend, Bristol didn’t reap the benefits:

She had to turn to Craigslist to beg people to show up at a book signing on Saturday at Books-A-Million in the District. In an ad on the Web site, Palin offered free, autographed copies of her book to the first 100 people to RSVP. Even the conservative DC newspaper the Examiner noted that the ad was “an attempt to entice fans to attend the event.”

Republicans insisted that doctors put an instrument inside the woman’s vagina.

No Virginia, it’s not really about the fetus. It’s all about the probe. Democrats had sought to allow doctors to use other imaging methods but Republicans insisted that doctors put an instrument inside the woman’s vagina. Why? Well, since there’s no medical reason for it, the only possible explanation is that they want to “send a message.” You know. About who’s boss:

The bill, which passed the House of Delegates yesterday and the state Senate two weeks ago, would require an ultrasound to determine a fetus’ gestation age. It would then give the woman the option to view the ultrasound before her abortion.    Read more

“Purity Bear” Tells You to Stay Abstinent Before Marriage… AGAIN!

February 15, 2012 by Hemant Mehta:

The Purity Bear is back.  And this commercial is even worse than the first.

First of all… no.  Just no.  That bear is weird and creepy and doesn’t make me take the message seriously.

Also, “I feel like we really got to know each other” sounds like something you say on a first or second date.  If that’s true, you DO NOT follow that up with “I love you.”  RED FLAG!  You don’t need a freaky bear to tell you to stay away from anyone who does that.  (Then again, if your first thought when someone makes a move on you is, “I wonder what Purity Bear would say…” maybe we need to stay away from you, too.)
