 Parallels to the Nazis

Maureen Farrell draws parallels between the Nazis and Bush's America:
Hitler, like some of the today's politicians and preachers, politicized "family values." He liked corporeal punishment in home and school. Jesus prayers became mandatory in all schools under his administration. While abortion was illegal in pre-Hitler Germany, he took it to new depths of enforcement, requiring all doctors to report to the government the circumstances of all miscarriages. He openly despised homosexuality and criminalized it...

Hitler wrote... "When was the last time a Western nation had a leader so obsessed with God and claiming God was on our side? If you answered Adolph Hitler and Nazi Germany, you're correct," Bob Fitrakis wrote... Bush told Bob Woodward [on starting the Iraq war] "I was praying for strength to do the Lord's will...". Speaking in Berlin in March, 1936, Hitler said something remarkably similar. "I would like to thank Providence and the Almighty for choosing me of all people to be allowed to wage this battle for Germany," he said, before launching the preventive war heard round the world....

[A] few of the Fuhrer's assertions: "Secular schools can never be tolerated because such a school has no religious instruction and a general moral instruction without a religious foundation is built on air; consequently, all character training and religion must be derived from faith."... "It will be the Government's care to maintain honest cooperation between Church and State; the struggle against materialistic views and for a real national community is just as much in the interest of the German nation as in that of the welfare of our Christian faith."... "[W]e have restored to faith its prerequisites because we were convinced that the people need and require this faith. We have therefore undertaken the fight against the atheistic movement, and that not merely with a few theoretical declarations: we have stamped it out."

Where's my troll? Come out and play ;)

It is interesting to me that in todays world when ever someone wants to make another out to be bad they look for parallels to Hitler. like George's dad and George when talking about Hitler. and now Maureen about George. I for one was and still am opposed to to the war in Iraq. I think it was misguided. But most of your Democratic friends voted for it because it was the popular thing to do. I think the thing we need to worry about most is what is Popular and is it good just because it is popular. Do you really think corporeal punishment is a bad thing? Do you really think Abortion is a good thing? How can you be a Humanist if you are willing to allow the horrible destruction of innocent human life? How does it equate to the "greater good of humanity"? The answer to Hitlers question about God was the U.S. and correct me if I am wrong here, the U.S. defeated Germany and Japan. And why is it that you find it nessasary to attack Christians? Don't you see all the good done in the world by them? No organization ever has done more for the betterment of man than the Catholic Church. Try to look beyond the Fanatical fundalmentalists in the Christian world and see the majority for what they are.
