and where did his anti-semitism come from? christian anti-semitism
has a long history in europe, especially in germany.  Jews have been
(and still are) accused of all the usual crimes (baby killers/eaters,
witchcraft, theft, etc) that transient or ethnic minority groups (incl.
heretics, gypsies, and others) are always accused of plus the extra
crime that they as an entire race/culture were the killers of Christ.

the fact that Jesus himself was a Jew (and that his teachings were ONLY
for other Jews - it was Paul, not Jesus, who spread it to gentiles)
is usually glossed over and ignored by christian
unfortunate and inconvenient truth

christians, and especially catholics, have been trying to disown hitler
and distance themselves from him since the 40s. he's an embarassment, so
they like to blame him on atheists or pagans.

he was definitely a christian, and a catholic.
