Dear Mr. Keating,
I have been carrying on a discussion with an athiest regarding the religious beliefs of Adolf Hitler and Mussolini. I have been maintaining that Hitler was not Christian, that he rejected Catholicism, and that he was influenced by the writings of Neitzche in so far as carrying out the extermination of “inferior races”. However, I feel that I have placed myself in a bit of a pickle, because I’m having trouble finding resouces to substantiate this. Nevertheless, I was delighted to discover your e-letters, which have helped me tremendously. In particular, I was delighted to find your e-letters of May 20, 2003, in which you state that “neither Hitler or Mussolini was a Catholic (or a believer of any sort)…” Have you expanded on this topic in any of your books or other writings? I am in need of references to substantiate this very point.
Can anyone else comment on this subject?
