    Gotta clean up those misconcepttions.  Hitler was raised Catholic, was a choirboy, and dreamed of joining the Dominican order (according to Mein Kampf).

    Nazi Germany adopted Lutheranism as the STATE RELIGION, though Nazism was overwhelmingly Catholic (why do you think all those big Nazi rallies were held in overwhelmingly Catholic Nuremberg?)

    Stalin trained for the priesthood.  True, he was an enemy of religion in the beginning, but he never fully banned it, and when the Nazis invaded Russia, he rallied the people, not in the name of the Heroes of Communism, but of Russias saints and holy men and opened and encouraged every church he could get his hands on.
