Who were the Nazi's ultimate target?

Christians, of course

"By destroying Israel, by the Shoah, they ultimately wanted to tear up the taproot of the Christian faith and to replace it with a faith of their own invention: faith in the rule of man, the rule of the powerful"

--Pope Ratzinger speaking at Auschwitz-Birkenau on May 28, 2006

And you know what else? After the speech, the Pope greeted 32 camp survivors, all but one of whom were Polish Catholics. One lonley Jew represented the more than one million Jews who died at Auschwitz-Birkenau.

With no apparent awareness of the long tradition of Christian contempt for Jews and the Jewish religion, a contempt which both fed the hatred of the perpetrators and justified the inaction of the bystanders, the pope also prayed, "Why, Lord, did you remain silent?"

What a dispicible display, and one that continues the Church's previous efforts to usurp the Holocaust.

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your website?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But
maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
