Dear Friends, 
In the pseudo-religion of Nazism, the histrionic “fuhrer” Adolf Hitler seemed to  be enthusiastic about personally occupying the position of its main Divinity.  
Besides worshipping death and bloodshed in their cult,   the Nazis also had  “special sacraments” in which Hitler’s book “Mein Kampf” was made to play the role of the “sacred scripture”.  
British historian Paul Johnson  reports:  
“A  special wedding service was designed for the SS.  It included runic  figures,  a sun-disc of flowers, a fire-bowl, and it opened with the chorus from ‘Lohengrin’, after which the pair received bread and salt. At SS baptismal ceremonies, the room was decorated with a centre altar containing the photograph of Hitler and a copy of ‘Mein Kampf’; and on the walls were candles, Nazi flags, the Tree of Life and branches of young trees. There was music from Grieg’s  ‘Peer Gynt’ (‘Morning’), readings from ‘Mein Kampf’,  promises by the sponsors and other elements of Christian ceremony; but the celebrant was an SS officer and the service concluded with the hymn of loyalty to the SS.” (1) 
All this was well-known in Germany, but the combination of mass-propaganda and mass-killoing was not easy to neutralize, and the Christian Churches, as corporations,  occupied a central place in Hitler’s pay-roll.  
Those whom the institutional bribes could not buy or control were systematically arrested, tortured  and killed. 
It  was only along the 1950s that West Germany got rid of its Nazi nightmare and became a democracy again.  After the destruction of the Berlin Wall in 1989, reunification of the country occurred. 
The sad lessons taken from  Hitler’s nightmare of spiritual  blindness must not be forgotten.  
In the years ahead, Nazi groups, “Jihad” terrorist organizations and other  forms of  sanctification of violence  and death worship will have to be faced, in one way or another.  
Best regards,   Carlos Cardoso Aveline.
