Modern fascism liquidating the judeo christian worldview ellen philpotts page dating
Before looking at this, it needs to be noted that Luther used all sorts of insults to attack the Jews that were no different to his attacks on Roman Catholics and others with whom he disagreed. At the time, most writers did not hesitate to use the coarsest language to attack opponents.Bad language was the politically correct speech of the day.
Equally important is the content of Luther’s argument when stripped of his inflammatory rhetoric.
Cultural determinism; the reduction of all social relationships to issues of sheer power; the idea the one's identity is centered in one's ethnicity or race; the rejection of the concept of the individual -- such ideas have become academic commonplaces."The project in contemporary thought of dismantling Western civilization and critiquing 'humanistic values' (such as liberty, reason, and objective moral principles) is not new. Racism alone cannot explain the virulence of Nazi anti-Semitism. A transcendent God, who reveals a transcendent moral law, was anathema to fascists.
."The fascists aligned themselves not only against the Jews but against what the Jews contributed to Western civilization. Some advocated a syncretistic Christianity, revising the faith to make it accord with the new culture.
Such claims are based on poor history and a failure to understand the complexity of National Socialism, which at its core was a new religious movement.
Refuting this misleading conception of history is important for both Christians and non-Christians alike who hope to understand the depth of Nazi evil.
