What landed in my comments boxes (Was Hitler a Catholic?)

"“For the record, Hitler persecuted the Catholic Church and was automatically excommunicated in 1931—two years before he assumed power—when he acted as best man at Joseph Goebbel’s Protestant wedding. Hitler even bragged about his separation from the Church. As for doing nothing about the Holocaust, Sir Martin Gilbert reminds us that Goebbels denounced Pope Pius XII for his 1942 Christmas message criticizing the Nazis (the New York Times lauded the pope for doing so in an editorial for two years in a row). Much to Hagee’s chagrin, Gilbert also says that Pius XII saved three quarters of the Jews in Rome, and that more Jews were saved proportionately in Catholic countries than Protestant countries. Indeed, Israeli diplomat Pinchas Lapide credited the Catholic Church with saving 860,000 Jews. No religion can match that."

Again, where are the official records or recordings of any of this stuff?

This is the problem with all of this anyone can come out and make statements like these, do you have any verifiable proof of any of this except heresay or second hand information?

If Pius didn't excommunicate the man he must've had his reasons or are you somehow theologically superior than the pope?

A pope who many believe should be canonized a saint BTW.
