This is laughable. It is clear you don't know or want to know Christian theology. Or maybe you just want to spout a lie as truth. Grace, forgiveness is a strong central core of God's love. But you don't care. Just spread the lies.

Hitler hated Judaism. But he loathed Christianity, too.
Bullock, in describing Hitler as a “rationalist and materialist,” quotes him in a wartime conversation with aides as saying:
By 1942, Hitler vowed, according to Bullock, to “root out and destroy the influence of the Christian Churches,” describing them as “the evil that is gnawing our vitals.”

Putrid. You have no argument, but merely the old 'you don't understand, you are telling atheist lies'. Preceded by deprecation and followed up by preaching. A wretched lack of an answer.

Never underestimate the dangers of political leaders using religion as a merely a vehicle to gain support by the masses and then control them through fear.

This is true. Political leaders have employed religion and superstition to direct and control the general population since the beginning of recorded history. Which is why conforming to popular beliefs based on little more than blind faith and "because my mommy said so," is so dangerous.

That deserves a rep. It couldn't apply better to the resurgence of the Religious Right.

Wow.Something most of us can probably agree with.
The question though, is, why are the religious so easy to manipulate?

Oh, you mean like religions do? You do realize that you just described your particular brand of religion, right? It gains support by talking hellfire and damnation, and then uses that to control the congregation...
