  1. There were many Christians who spoke out and died for their Christian anti-Nazi stand. Dietrich Bonhoeffer was one Christian minister killed because he stood up against Hitler. I am not sure how many this happened to and that may partly be due to the fact that death was a probably outcome for such actions.

    Christianity is not about what you say but about the life you live and faith in God. Hitler obviously didn’t live up to any kind of real Christian faith. It would be pretty silly to say he was a Christian. Just my 2 cents.

  2. as much of a christian as Bush.
