Even more ironic is that Adolph Hitler knew he would have to get the tacit support of the Catholic Church in order to be successful at all in Europe and in a 1933 Reichskonkordat treaty the rights of the Roman Catholic Church in Germany were guaranteed. In any case, the Nazi field guide took many pages from church history. False claims of immorality or homosexuality, arrests in the night, beatings and tortured confessions. The Nazi's were defeated. The church continues in its various forms, abusing, hurting, killing. +Frank Layton is right. It is scary. Very scary.
