This would be funny, were it not that it is what these sick, perverted criminals actually seem to think.

Christians like to argue that we need objective moral standards and that only faith, their faith of course, can give them.

There is so much wrong with that statement and its wild claims that it would take a book, a very thick one, or even several to just explore how wildly ridiculous this is.

Maybe that is why this argument had such a staunch supporter in Adolf Hitler.

Hitler argues that "the existing denominations", mainly Catholicism and the Protestant Churches, offer the only basis for a moral outlook on life. For this good Christian the world itself would be "inconceivable" without faith. Of course he recognizes its use for the masses. Guess why that is?

"This human world of ours would be inconceivable without the practical existence of a religious belief. The great masses of a nation are not composed of philosophers. For the masses of the people especially, faith is absolutely the only basis of a moral outlook on life. The various substitutes that have been offered have not shown any results that might warrant us to think that they might usefully replace the existing denominations."


~ Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, Volume 1, Chapter 10

Interestingly enough, Hitler here makes the link between fanaticism, hysteria, upheavals and faith.

"Faith is harder to shake than knowledge, love succumbs less to change than respect, hate is more enduring than aversion, and the impetus to the mightiest upheavals on this earth has at all times consisted less in a scientific knowledge dominating the masses than in a fanaticism which inspired them and sometimes in a hysteria which drove them forward."

~ Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, Volume 1, Chapter 12
