Were the Nazis “Godless”?

Filed under: Germany — furtherglory @ 7:48 am

Last night on his TV show, called The Factor, Bill O’Reilly said that the Nazis were “Godless.”

What was the Moto of the Luftwaffe [the German Air Force]? Was it “Kein Gott für uns”?  Or was it “Gott mit uns” [God with us]?

You can listen here to a speech, about religion in Germany, made by Hitler in 1939.

Was Hitler a life-long Catholic, who never officially left the church? Or was he Godless?

One of the first laws that Hitler put into effect in Germany was known as the “Aryan Paragraph.” This new rule stated that only Aryans could have positions in the German government; Jews were no longer allowed to have government jobs. This rule was soon expanded to ban Jews from becoming Pastors in Christian churches in Germany.

Was Germany “Godless” because Jews were not allowed to preach in Catholic churches?

The main opposition to Hitler’s “Aryan Paragraph” came from a group of young pastors led by Martin Niemöller, Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Heinrich Gruber. Initially, their main complaint was that Hitler had united all denominations of Germany’s Protestant churches under Ludwig Müller as the first Reich Bishop.

When the new law that Jews were not allowed to be Protestant ministers went into effect, Niemöller organized the Pastor’s Emergency League to protect Protestant pastors, who were violating the new law, from the police.

With the support of Karl Barth, a professor of theology at Bonn University, in May, 1934, the rebel pastors formed what became known as the Confessional Church. Over the next few years, hundreds of these pastors were sent to concentration camps; Dietrich Bonhoeffer was executed. [Bonhoeffer was involved in the July 20, 1944 plot to kill Hitler, which is why he was singled out to be executed.]

One of the major differences of the teaching of the Confessional Church was that Jews, who had converted to Christianity, could become pastors. Hitler did not want Jews to become pastors in Christian churches.  Could Aryans become rabbis in Jewish Synagogues?

Hitler did not want Germany to be ruled by Jews — in any way. Did that make the Nazis Godless?

Let’s see what Wikipedia has to say about the Godless Nazis:

This quote is from Wikipedia:

Most members of the Nazi Party, however, were Christians. Composed mostly by members of the Lutheran Evangelical tradition, members of the apostate Nazi-inspired Positive Christianity sect and some of the Catholic faith tradition respectively. […]

There was some diversity of personal views among the Nazi leadership as to the future of religion in Germany. Anti-Church radicals included Hitler’s Personal Secretary Martin Bormann and Minister for Propaganda Joseph Goebbels, the neo-pagan official Nazi Philosopher Alfred Rosenberg and security chief Heinrich Himmler. Some Nazis, such as Hans Kerrl, who served as Hitler’s Minister for Church Affairs, believed Christianity could be Nazified into “Positive Christianity”, by renouncing its Jewish origins, the Old Testament and Apostle’s Creed, and holding Hitler as a new “Messiah”. Hitler himself believed that in the long run, National Socialism and religion would not be able to co-exist, but was prepared temporarily to restrain some of his more radical instincts out of political considerations.

Now let’s go to the website of the United States Holocaust Museum to see what the Jews have to say about the Godless Nazis.

The following quote is from

Hitler espoused the importance of Christianity to German nationality and Christianity’s role in a renewal of national morality and ethics, leading Niemöller to enthusiastically welcome the Third Reich. Niemöller later confessed that even Hitler’s antisemitism reflected a more extreme version of his own prejudice at that time.

Niemöller’s conflicts with National Socialism emerged out of his opposition to the German Christians, a pro-Nazi faction within the German Protestant Church that sought to apply Nazi racial dogma to church membership in such a way as to bar so-called non-Aryans (people considered Jewish under Nazi racial laws) from the ministry and from religious teaching positions.

Catholic priests were put into the Dachau concentration camp, but not because they were priests.  It was because they were preaching against the Nazis.

I wrote about the priests at Dachau at

Bill O’Reilly, who is Catholic, is an authority on Nazis, so maybe he will tell us more about their Godless traits tonight. Meanwhile, be sure to read this blog post about the Nazis and religion:


  1. Do you think that [ZI]O’reilly meant ANOTHER country? There is another where the leadership WAS godless.

    “While Christian churches across Russia were being destroyed and clergymen murdered by Communist gangs, most synagogues and rabbis were left virtually untouched.

    It was during this time that Bolshevik Commissars (many of them Jews) conducted a horrendous reign of terror against the non-Jewish Russian population.”

    • Something along these lines. The FBI traitor Robert Hanssen said the Reds would ultimately fail because they were Godless.

  2. The OSS tasked cultural Marxist Frankfurt School founder Franz Neumann to assemble evidence of Nazi persecution of churches for the Nuremburg IMT. The patholization of the American Christian family structure by his Frankfurt School collegue Theodore Adorno in the book The Authoritarian Personality (1950) is an academic ur-text in the assault on post-war culture that led to conflicts on college campuses and the social revolution of the 1960’s. “Political Correctness” is gift the Frankfurt School gave us. A man who helped make this was Edward R. Morrow. Murrow was assistant director of the Institute of International Education from 1932 to 1935 and served as assistant secretary of the Emergency Committee in Aid of Displaced Foreign Scholars, which helped prominent German [Jewish] scholars who had been dismissed from academic positions. Thanks Ed!

  3. Once again , ” History according to O’Reilly”.

    • Yes, O’Reilly is destroying what little credibility he had left by groveling at the feet of his kosher masters.
      It is embarrassing to observe this level of cultist worship for the ruling oligarchy. He now jokes and says Hitler he had a “farting” problem. –
      The Holocaust™ movement is obviously in deep defecation the kosher kindred just continue to sink to new lows of toxic-crap.

      Bill O’Reilly on Hitlers farting condition

      Comment by Libby Anne Justice — February 12, 2015 @ 8:48 am

      • I wouldn’t have believed it,if I didn’t see it. Late night has gone to the proverbial “dogs”. Carson was the only good one we ever had. Kimmel said he told anyone who would listen about uncle Adolph’s rippin off a few all the time. When he would meet the little aryan children,I wonder if he did the,” hey kid,pull my finger”. This is a perfect example of just how big of an idiot,billy boy has become. Did hitlers farting affect the outcome of anything? The fact that dippy was constantly firing the cannon,is moot. I will admit,I actuall feel sorry for Eva. Bill just backed up my assertion that it’s ,” world history according to bill”. Now this is not verbatim,but close. He said when he taught history,the history books were not telling everything. He said that’s why “he wrote his “. There it is. Unless it came from his books,it’s not correct. Okay. Who’s gonna give bill the bad news. Jesus occupied the cross. Sorry William,there ain’t enough room on it for you. Over the course of the past years,everything seems to read like a “Twilight Zone ” script. I’m waiting for Rod Serling” to Pop up.

  4. “The National Government will regard as its first and foremost duty to revive in the nation the spirit of unity and cooperation. It will defend and preserve those basic principles on which our nation has been built. It regards Christianity as the foundation of our national morality, and the family as the basis of national life.” – Adolf Hitler, Proclamation to the German Nation at Berlin, February 1, 1933

    • Thanks a million for providing a link to this video. I have pulled the link out of the comments and put it near the top of my post. I had not heard this speech before and I am very grateful that you put this in a comment.

      • “ The warmongering faction HAS TO get its citizens MAD at the enemy, and in the PROPER MOOD.
        It has to get it citizens TO THINK they are fighting for the world’s good,and for Christian or
        other religious righteousness,and the enemy IS EVIL and ruled by THE DEVIL.

        So it was with the propaganda AGAINST Hitler AND Germany,
        and so IT HAS BEEN EVER SINCE.”

        Knife through Christian Bible This is the Enemy Poster.

        “Above all propaganda here is entirely in JEWISH hands. . .
        when bearing public ignorance in mind,their propaganda is so effective that
        people have NO REAL KNOWLEDGE of the TRUE STATE of AFFAIRS in Europe. . .”
