Pope or Hitler ?

 

 Who Said This?

 

" General moral instruction without a religious foundation is built on air; consequently, all character training must be derived from faith. "

 

" In this world him who does not abandon himself the Almighty will not desert. Him who helps himself will the Almighty always also help; He will show him the way by which he can gain his rights, his freedom, and therefore his future. "

 

This is a response to the Pope's claim that the Nazi movement was atheist. When it was nothing of the sort.

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"

The point of this is not to imply that the Pope is or ever was a Nazi but instead to simply imply that he is either purposely trying to associate atheism with Nazism or he is a complete idiot.
