Hitler and Stormbringer, Possibly More in Common Than He Suspects
Bob ‘Stormbringer’ Sorensen has been squirting his ‘thoughts’ all over his blog today, furiously claiming that a fundie web site should ‘sue’ another non-believing blogger for (quite reasonably) stating it’s claims that Hitler wasn’t a believer were rather suspect.
Thing is, one of the key ‘Hitler was an atheist’ quotes is this – “Christianity is an invention of sick brains: one could imagine nothing more senseless, nor any more indecent way of turning the idea of the Godhead into a mockery….” (rather tellingly the website Bob is defending quotes only up to the colon, ignoring the, clearly pro-belief, rest)
I’m rather reminded of the words of Sorensen himself, a few months ago, when he attacked another Christian for not being enough of a Jesus Warrior. You can read what I wrote about that here – http://anatheistviewpoint.blogspot.com/2011/03/no-true-scotsman-revisited.html
Note, Hitler was at no point saying that the ‘Godhead’ didn’t exist, he was actually railing against what he saw as the weakness of mainstream Christianity…..sound familiar? It should, here are some of Sorensen’s own words –
Did you know that Jesus wasn’t always Captain Nice? Nor were Paul, John the Baptist and others. So don’t put your touchie-feelie churchianity on me.
Eerily similar to the way Hitler spoke, no? It seems to me that, perhaps, Stormy Sorensen has more in common with old Adolf than he’d want to admit.
