What does Christianity mean today? National Socialism is a religion. All we lack is a religious genius capable of uprooting outmoded religious practices and putting new ones in their place. We lack traditions and ritual. One day soon National Socialism will be the religion of all Germans. My Party is my church, and I believe I serve the Lord best if I do his will, and liberate my oppressed people from the fetters of slavery. That is my gospel.
National Socialist and Christian concepts are incompatible.
— Martin Bormann
There’s an old saying: “Judge them by the company they keep.” Hitler surrounded himself with openly rabid anti-Christians like Himmler, Bormann, Rosenberg, Goebbels and Heydrich. Hardly the people a devout Christian would want to be around.

Dear César, I’d like to draw your attention to a book that had been wrote by a young German soldier (ex-SA-Mann and HJ-member) in the late of 1930s: God and Folk, Soldierly Affirmation. It’s a simple, manly, healthy and beautiful text about religious revaluation in the New Reich which is conformable to German temper, without metaphysical sophistication and excessive dogmaticism. Yes, this book is strictly antichristian, though the author also rejects archaic Wotanism and asserts the new values: boldness, duty, sacrifice, blood, fatherland etc. The English translation is not flawless, but acceptable. Of course, better is the original version’s reading, if you can. Maybe, the book is worth to be quotable for your blog.
