Gott Mit Uns

God of War

Funny how many times I hear people talk about “our war with Islam.”  In other times, a while back, remember that in World War II we were at war with Christians.

If one thinks about it, war is war no matter what religion is claimed. It makes no difference if one is fighting for control of industry or a pipe-line,  religion is always immaterial and superfluous except of course as a political tool to conjure dehumanization of the enemy as well as the innocent civilian– a god is really never that much involved when everybody has a version of a deity on their side.
Land grabs and mineral rights are the true gods of war.

Gott Mit Uns (God is with us)

“Hitler’s Germany amalgamated state with church. Soldiers of the vermacht wore belt buckles inscribed with the following: “Gott mit uns” (God is with us). His troops were often sprinkled with holy water by the priests. It was a real Christian country whose citizens were indoctrinated by both state and church and blindly followed all authority figures, political and ecclesiastical” from Hitler Was NotAn Atheist by John Patrick Michael Murphy
