Unfortunately, this topic is beginning to be muddled. Your source you quoted was correct, that the Nazis were burning Bibles, and also tearing down crucifixes at the end of the war. It was a program the Nazis initiated, where they were attempting to Dechristianize the German People.
It’s funny, because as these faulty sentiments spread—obviously you’re displaying prejudice too—there’s been a belief that Christianity caused Nazi Germany, or some such thought.
This is not true. In Hitler’s Table Talk, along with copious quotes from Joseph Goebbels and other high ranking Nazis, they hated Christianity. A famous quote which is whitewashed from the internet, that said something like, “If a Jew is a Christian, you have the added benefit of killing two Jews” was said by a high ranking Nazi official. Not only that, there was much information about the Dechristianization efforts of Nazi Germany on Wikipedia, not too long ago.
But, let’s forget all of that, and look at Nazi Ideology.
The Swastika is the first thing we want to look at. It carries from the region of India, and during the Nazi regime there was a belief that the Nazis were a race which took over India, and controlled the whole world. So Nazis believed that the Aryans would be found in all parts of the world, which is why they would search for Swastikas in places like South America or Australia, and perhaps find similar looking symbols. The Swastika is still a viable symbol in India today, which is prominent, because what the Nazis actually believed, was that the white race would achieve godhood status on earth, and rule the world like the Indian Brahman, with darker skinned peoples creating lower and lower castes beneath them.
So, also, the source you used was proficient, and did reflect the end goal of Nazi ideology. But, if you don’t believe me, here’s the New York Times describing Nazi Ideology, and maybe this will help you understand what was going on, and the political climate:
NAZIS DEMAND BAN ON OLD TESTAMENT; Suggest That German Sagas and Fairy Stories Replace Part of Bible in Churches. STATE RELIGION IS LIKELY Rosenberg Proposes Worship of War "Martyrs" -- Papen to See Pope on Course for Catholics. - The New York Times)
Not only that, but it was a myth disseminated around all of Academia—not unlike certain myths disseminating right now about various things—which became ubiquitously believed, about the Aryan religion leaving artefacts across the territories they dominated. The Third Reich meant “Third Roman Empire” which was being constructed as a Pagan Rome, and Christ’s crucifixion was part of that mythology, as was Homer, Virgil, Ovid, Grimm Brothers, and even the Brahman and Theosophic mystery cults. As, the point of Nazi Ideology was not Christianity, but rather a divisive message of racial superiority, where the Nazis wished to create a Caste System not unlike what’s in India today, where the whites were the “Gods” or “Brahmans” and everyone else from the Saxon to the African, were ordered and put in a hierarchical Feudal structure according to race.
Furthermore, there was a great effort in Poland and other territories, to purge Catholics. As they were being targeted and put in concentration camps too. Something between five hundred thousand, and two million Catholics were purged from Poland and other Nazi Territories during the war. You can read a lot about that, and it’s still accessible online.
Note that I answered this 23 years later. It’s important, because your answer sniffs at the current prejudices circulating right now, about Christians. I wouldn’t be surprised—as it’s already happening—if we become a persecuted group in following years. And I appreciate your prejudice, and lack of faith in trustworthy sources, as it demonstrates a naked blindness people have regarding this issue, which I would like to correct.
