Was Adolf Hitler a Roman Catholic?

From what I read, he was, since in 1941 he said he would always be a Catholic, but I could be wrong.

    The Nazi leader Hitler, who came from the land of the Hapsburg family of kings, Austria, evidently had in mind the Germanic Holy Roman Empire, which lasted from the year 962 to 1806....

    Jehovah’s Witnesses were undergoing fiery persecution at the hands of the nationalist forces under Adolf Hitler, with the backing of the clergy of the Roman Catholic Church to which Nazi Hitler belonged.....

    Acts 9:1

    But Saul, still breathing threat and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest (Saul who later was named paul repented after Jesus blinded him and told Saul that he was persecuting him. Saul stopped persecuting true christians. (Acts 9,10 chapter) Any Religious Leader who takes the lead in war or any form of bloody murderous action will be considered False prophets who are misleading the nations. Over the years False religion has been the blame for misleading political decisions and views. They are like wolf's with sheep coverings. Money and big Golden churches. They live in great luxury and and support killing and persecute true christians, and they Falsely teach. They are as jesus calls it, hypocrites )

    Significantly, Catholic Adolf Hitler found readier support among Protestants than among Catholics. Predominantly Protestant districts gave him 20 percent of their votes in the 1930 elections, Catholic districts only 14 percent. And the first absolute majority for the Nazi Party in state elections was in 1932 in Oldenburg, a district 75 percent Protestant.....

    He was, and the church helped many top ranked Nazis to escape to South American and other places near to and after the end of the war. Yes, Hitler was a Catholic, and often spoke about god.

      The Church helped Jews escape.
      The narrative that Pope Pius XII collaborated w/ Hitler was disinformation campaign. See "Operation Seat 12" the KGB created outline for what was to become a play mischaracterizing the Pope as a Nazi sympathizer, The Deputy.

    He stopped attending church when he was 16.That he was an atheist is well-documented from the Table Talk. In public, he had a line in God-talk.

      Constructing a Pseudo-Hitler? Is nothing new the Nazis also do the same with well documented lies... Germany on those Nazi times were 67% Protestant and 33% Catholic and Hitler never acted alone...

    I don't know if he claimed to be, but obviously he wasn't. Anyway, it hardy matters what he thought he was, since he was obviously insane.

    “Reared as Catholic but Violates Faith Says, “An appeal has been made to Pius XII that Reichsfuehrer Adolph Hitler be excommunicated. 

    Adolph Hitler, was born of Catholic parents, was baptized a Catholic, and was reared and educated as such. Yet Hitler was never excommunicated. 

    An appeal has been made to Pius XII that Reichsfuehrer Adolph Hitler be excommunicated. 

    If this action had been taken, might it have affected the outcome of the war and helped spare mankind much suffering? Sad to say, the pope never responded.

      Or Hitler may have sacked the Vatican and sent everybody there to the gas chambers. Sad that you didn't think of that.

    Nazi Germany was approximately 67% Protestant and 33% Catholic... and Hitler was Catholic but Adolf did not act alone...

    The prevailing view among historians is that Luther's anti-Jewish is that Luther's anti-Jewish rhetoric contributed significantly to the development of antisemitism in Germany, and in the 1930s and 1940s provided an ideal foundation for the Nazi Party's attacks on Jews.

    Luther book On the Jews and Their Lies and the book Of the Unknowable Name and the Generations of Christ was nothing about love and peace for Jews
