Once again the 'Hitler was an atheist' issue was brought up. PZ Meyers posted a list of Hitler quotes.

"I believe today that I am acting in the sense of the Almighty Creator. By warding off the Jews I am fighting for the Lord's work." [Adolph Hitler, Speech, Reichstag, 1936]

"I am now as before a Catholic and will always remain so" [Adolph Hitler, to Gen. Gerhard Engel, 1941]

Oh gOD! That Shmuley talks just so much BS which doesn't make like any sense at all!

If you have audio of the debate, why play 10 minutes of the boring, stale, hackneyed, indoctrinated Schmuley Boteach, desperate for publicity, when you have the scintillating, world renown polemicist and prominent intellectual, Christopher Hitchens?

You have to ask Shmuley
