Trolling in the first sentence[edit]

I believe someone edited the first sentence of this article to troll. It says he's a puppy lover and it's filled with grammar mistakes — Preceding unsigned comment added by Maarten359 (talkcontribs) 14:45, 12 March 2015 (UTC)

problematic citation[edit]

His regime did not publicly advocate for state atheism, but it did seek to reduce the influence of Christianity on society. Hitler himself was reluctant to make public attacks on the Church for political reasons, despite the urgings of Nazis like Bormann. Although he was skeptical of religion,[11][12]

I have checked the sources on this and it appears that The person who made this edit has engaged a synthesis between two sources. The result is that the sentence is not true to either source. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:59, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

The phrase "His regime did not publicly advocate for state atheism" seems deliberately misleading to me, since the Nazis ruthlessly suppressed atheist and freethinker organizations starting in early 1933, and later that year Hitler claimed in a speech that he had "stamped [atheism] out".

Very POV article[edit]

How about get the basic facts out in the opening and then theories in their own sections? Basic facts would be ethnic status in terms of his parents religion, whether he was baptized, whether he went through confirmation as an adolescent, and what his self stated religion was as an adult. The rest is conjecture, and deserves to be there but only if properly identified as such. ' — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:49, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

Relevance of Kirchenkampf[edit]

Is Kirchenkampf relevant to:

, but in the pursuit and maintenance of power was prepared to delay clashes with the churches out of political considerations.

Clearly some christian got ahold of this article. quite a bit of it is speculation and quite a lot of it is flat out wrong. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2605:6001:F203:4B00:A493:4F77:D869:6B31 (talk) 23:41, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

And what professionally published mainstream academic sources are you basing your (unspecified) claims on? Ian.thomson (talk) 23:43, 17 July 2015 (UTC)
