"Christianity is an invention of sick brains," Adolf Hitler, 13 December 1941.
"So it's not opportune to hurl ourselves now into a struggle with the Churches. The best thing is to let Christianity die a natural death," Adolf Hitler, 14 October 1941.
"Christianity is a rebellion against natural law, a protest against nature. Taken to its logical extreme, Christianity would mean the systematic cultivation of the human failure," Adolf Hitler
Hitler created 'positive Christianity' in order to further envelope the people, seeking to avoid a clash of church and state. Of course this is my interpretation, some people have rather unfavorable views of Christianity.
