Ya know...Mike Rivero is VERY transparent. He's of "Da Left". Those wonderful people with very short memories and a VERY selective view on history.
Rivero is caught in "fascism" and how the U.S is under it's spell when there is not a SINGLE fascist bone in the U.S's body by ANY definition. It is the cry of the "enlightened Left" when they are the stupid dupes they have always been. Even the Left God Chomsky can see it...that the Neo-con movement is a Stalinist/Leninist/Trotskyite Empire of common thugs.
The words "socialism" or "communism" cannot be brought to his lips with a single cutting critique. A "PaleoConservative" my arse.
He is a dupe who would kiss Soros arse...and demand no shower before.
Now why would the Churches support Hitler? Why would you do that? Could it be because just over the border a certain mass murder'er who spurned the idea of a supernatural God, who had killed 20 million of his own people and made pig sty's outta Churches was poised to invade Western Europe and plunge the cultured West into a totalitarian abyss?
Stalin and Communism was/is by ANY definition the "Anti-Christ".
If I was their I would have been lining up to join the SS.
I'm personally sick of this crap and the convienent memories of the idiot Left.
Theologians Under Hitler
In the days after World War II, a convenient story was told of church leaders and ordinary Christians that defied the Nazis from the beginning. Recent research has uncovered a very different story. Rather than resisting, the greater part of the German church saw Hitler's rise in 1933 as an act of God's blessing, a new chapter in the story of God among the German people.
This film, based upon groundbreaking research, introduces the viewer to three of the greatest Christian scholars of the twentieth century: Paul Althaus, Emanuel Hirsch, and Gerhard Kittel, men who were also outspoken supporters of Hitler and the Nazi party. In 1933 Althaus spoke of Hitler's rise as "a gift and miracle of God." Hirsch saw 1933 as a "sunrise of divine goodness." And Kittel, the editor of the standard reference work on the Jewish background of the New Testament, began working for the Nazis to find a "moral" rationale for the destruction of European Jewry.
This provocative film asks: how could something like this happen in the heart of Christian Europe? Could it happen again? How does the scholarship of this period affect the church today? Does the church of today retain the ability to recognize profound evil?
Special features included in the DVD:
* "Discovery in the Archives," an account given by Wolfgang Krogel in Berlin of the use of baptismal records to identify persons of "non-Aryan" heritage
* "A Pastor Remembers," a personal story told by Rudolf Weckerleng, a 93 year old pastor of the Confessing Church.

The film is an excellent introduction to understanding how the church failed. It is well researched and presented and I highly recommend it.
The video was also shown and discussed at The 35th Annual Scholars' Conference on the Holocaust and the Churches in March in Philadelphia. It was given high marks for its scholarship and ability to recognize the failure of the church during Nazism - when too few theologians resisted.

You have done a great job on an important project. I watched it again over the weekend with my wife and it is truly both a disturbing and a remarkable story.

For people who thought Dietrich Bonhoeffer represented the mainstream of German Christianity in the Third Reich, this film is a rude awakening. And it is a cautionary message in a society where nationalism, patriotism, and Christian faith may be coming too closely connected in some circles. This is an excellent title for university, seminary, and large public libraries looking for important additions to their Holocaust collections.

One big conclusion on the disc- Every sentence is a teaching point- I've seen the show eight times and I'm still learning.

Now, what are these peoples views on Communism and how would they have felt with 2.5 million Godless Soviets and 30,000! armoured vehicles poised for a drive through your town? The record is in! Stalin was invading in June 1942.
Thank God for Hitler!
