Most excellent chapter, Joseph. I rated it funny, due to the ending. Many of these memoirs were written, sadly, and there is no telling what is truth and what is sheer opportunism, seeking to exonerate those writers from allied-jewish persecution. I have an idea of who this person would be, but I am not quite sure it is fair to judge Hermann Göring and make him into some sort of joke, like the jewish media has consistently done due to his corpulence. Fairly sure he did take prescription drugs for his destroyed stomach (bullet wound from his time as a fighter ace in WW 1 tore up his intestines)... Well, that is actually beside the point. That remark, though, makes it sound like an attempt at "schmoozing" up to some kike publisher. I am glad that it got a grip on what Himmler thought of Christianity as such and laid it out clearly. Nobody at the time, except perhaps a few eccentrics, were having issues with Jesus. The problem with the church since the middle ages has always been the church institution itself, meddling in politics, stealing land from naive old folk and excommunicating/burning at the stake/railing against and crusading against those who did not follow their every whim and cater to the "Holy See" at every turn. Quite ridiculous. To think they quit meddling after they quit crusading and burning "witches" is wrong, they still meddle a great deal even if they have lost much of their power. Back in the time of Hitler, though, that influence was a real thorn in the side of the Reich. It was a very real and subversive element in society, and not easily gotten rid of. You know what they say about serving two masters, and now I am not talking about Jesus and Hitler here, but the Pope and Hitler. Jesus, faith, God or theology were not issues at all, only Mother Church, that unholy nest of liars, black magicians, bankers, robbers, pedophiles and con men. Any priest who takes a shilling for his work is no priest at all, but a Pharisee who must be driven from the temple! Now, Himmler himself, as well as the Führer, grew up as Catholics and both saw the beauty of what Christianity is to some priests, but also what it is to the "higher" priests, appointed due to church politics and often quite rotten. Getting the same sort of reaction as Martin Luther once had when he wrote his 95 theses and nailed them to the door of the All Saints church in Wittenberg... Well, that reaction is nothing but natural and thus it must be understood. Any man who gives himself to the Lord must ultimately feel obligated to stand against corruption, division and decadence. Being against the catholic church is quite easy, if it is only a personal opinion. It is quite obvious, to a thinking man, that the church itself is bad in every sense of the word, unless one is completely blind, like most folk are and forever will be. It has its good days and some priests who do good despite being charlatans, but being at odds with Mother Church and the Pope in Rome was quite a hazard to anyone wishing to unite a religiously divided Germany. Yet it was done, and not for lack of the church trying to fight the rise of Germany, tooth and bleeding nail. As a sidenote... I think it is a fine idea to have leaders take time off to think for three months or so, every now and then. The weight of the world can make any man make less than perfect decisions. As for the "not enough time" with those glorious twelve years, I cannot agree more. If Germany had gotten five more years, nothing would have stopped the rise. Hitler as a God was never on the tapestry and it is yet again one of those malicious lies which fills the jewish media these days. I know it is not easy to separate from all those documentaries everywhere. What is true is that many did believe him to be a prophet or even the second coming of Christ, but never God himself. More like a Noah, with National Socialism as his great Ark, a savior in the physical sense, sent here by God almighty to save humanity from the jews and communism. Second coming of Christ or not, I myself feel that he was without a doubt sent here by heaven, and he did indeed die for the sins and neglect of humanity, along with so many millions of the bravest and finest folk who ever lived. Let us just hope that this, the greatest case of martyrdom by far in human history, will be enough of a sacrifice to inexorably change the world and "turn the aeon", as you put it.
