No True Scotsman now? What about the vast majority of other Nazis that were undoubtedly Christian? Not that I'm buying the argument about Hitler himself, mind you. He was unarguably raised as a Catholic.

Lots of religious/faithful folks have big problems with churches, as well. Certainly more so when you are competing with them for... ahem.... leadership.



On the topic of the rest of the Nazis:

Hitler’s interpretation of the gospels resulted in something dubbed “positive Christianity,” which made its way into Article 24 of the 1920 Nazi Party Platform:

We demand the freedom of all religious confessions in the state, insofar as they do not jeopardize the state's existence or conflict with the manners and moral sentiments of the Germanic race. The Party as such upholds the point of view of a positive Christianity without tying itself confessionally to any one confession. It combats the Jewish-materialistic spirit at home and abroad and is convinced that a permanent recovery of our people can only be achieved from within on the basis of the common good before individual good.

That doesn't indicate their parents were with them. Could very easily be without their parent's (who happen to be back home in Ol' Mexico) knowledge. Conversely, the parents in question today definitely know their children are being detained, because they are also being detained.

Yes, quite likely very different.

Not sure of your point here, but that statement shows that they held the state higher than faith/religion/church - which proves they were not Christian, yet trying to co-opt Christians.

In Nazi germany, everyone was a part of the Nazi party, or their lives were hell and they disappeared.

The point being that their parents were not notified in the 2015 case either.
