Another chestnut exploded

So much for the oft-heard “Hitler was a Christian” argument:

A BIBLE featuring Adolf Hitler’s version of the Ten Commandments has been discovered.

The dictator ordered the book rewritten to remove all references to Jews.

In the Nazi bible, found in a German church, the regime who stole, murdered and plundered their way across Europe scrapped the likes of Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal and Thou shalt not covet your neighbour’s wife.

And Hitler got his theorists to alter the Commandments – and add two more – in a bid to further the Aryan ideal for the book Germans With God.

I don’t think even the most die-hard atheist will disagree that rewriting the Bible with you in the place of the Almighty tends to smack of a deep and fundamental disagreement with the most basic precepts of the Christian faith. This doesn’t surprise me, as I’ve cited evidence of Der Fuhrer’s plan for a National Socialist Church designed to replace the organized Protestant Church in Germany before, but this is evidence that everyone can easily grasp.
