Adolf Hitler admired Catholicism. The ostentatious richness of its rituals, its longevity, its spreading of hatred for anybody who doesn't conform, its dogmatism, its claims to universal domination and, last but not least, its strict hierarchical management: it all appealed to the Führer.

Hitler propaganda messiah

Nazi propaganda poster: Adolf Hitler is pictured as a messiah.
Notice the dove and the beam of light out of heaven.

"For how shall we fill people with blind faith in the correctness of a doctrine, if we ourselves spread uncertainty and doubt by constant changes in its outward structure? (...) Here, too, we can learn by the example of the Catholic Church. Though its doctrinal edifice, and in part quite superfluously, comes into collision with exact science and research, it is none the less unwilling to sacrifice so much as one little syllable of its dogmas. (...) it is only such dogmas which lend to the whole body the character of a faith."

~ Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, Volume 2, Chapter 5

Is it any wonder Catholics loved Nazism? Of course not, as systems to deceive and subjugate people they used practically the same methods.
