    I'm not certain that Luther was exploited by the Nazis. If we forget every he wrote in his career and focus solely on the 63,000-word harangue against the Jews, 'The Jews and their lies," and review his suggested treatment of them, it seems the Nazis follow his suggestions to the T.

    "I am not racist, but..."

    Definition of "but": "used to introduce something contrasting with what has already been mentioned."

    Draw your own conclusions.

    Very interesting, but not surprising. My wife is from Germany, she is not Jewish, but she has a disdain for the Nazis that I haven't seen before from a non-jew. I am not racist, but in looking at the Nazis from a historical point of view, in comparison to the immigration issues here today, it is easy to see the Nazi hatred of the Jews. There is definitely an animosity between the mexican community and everyone else here. Anyone who doesn't believe that is only lying to themselves. I'm not racist, but I would sure like to see all illegals rounded up and deported. just stating a fact.

    They are by no means the only group to recognise the power of exploiting religion to add legitimacy to your cause. This practise continues to this day.
