        Don't forget the Autobaun which inspired Gen Eisenhower to jumpstart the US Interstate System when he beame president. Hitler was far right wing, so I guess that could be a quality that Christian nutcases like. Other than that, Hitler was an assh***!

      They love hitler? They don't even love me.

      WHAT MAKES ME WORSE THAN HITLER?!

      WAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH WAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!,

      Actually, Christians are called to love everyone, even their enemies.

      A lot of "Christians" don't even love Jesus even though they say they do.

    Why do people love loaded questions?

      He asked a relevant question. One that most christians ignore because it is unpleasant.

        I'm not a Christian, but I'm pretty sure that the insinuation is quite ridiculous. I've never heard of a proper Christian claiming to love Hitler.

          Love thy enemies

          Love thy neighbor

          Do you really get to pick and choose?

          That is the point i am sure he was trying to make.

            Well if it was it wasn't clear. I believe the consensus is that you must love and forgive thy enemy, though not necessarily condone their actions. It's not too difficult.

              I'll love and forgive my enemies after I set them on fire. LOL

            In that case, a hypothetical scenario:

            Suppose a Holocaust escapee had somehow gotten the advantage of Hitler such that they could have killed him, and suppose they had decided to spare his life? What impact might that have had?

            To me, loving your enemies means always retaining the possibility of mercy and reconciliation and not being motivated by vengeance in our pursuit of them. No easy feat, and I'd agree that it's pretty rare for people to actually achieve that state of mind. But such a "love" also can never override our duty to protect (love) those our enemies harm.

          "Proper"?  We are to love people regardless of their complete screwed up qualities because we are jacked up pretty well in our own ways. You condemn the act, not the person. That's not our place.
