Holocaust Museum Shooting A Wake-Up For Christians Too

By Scott Lively, J.D., Th.D.

The man charged in the murderous assault on the Washington D.C. Holocaust Museum hated both Jews and Christians. James von Brunn stated on his website: "The Big Lie technique, employed by Paul to create the CHRISTIAN RELIGION, also was used to create the HOLOCAUST RELIGION … CHRISTIANITY AND THE HOLOCAUST are HOAXES" (“Darwin-loving museum shooter hates Bible, Christians,” WorldNetDaily, June 11, 2009).

This anti-Christian theme is absent from mainstream media coverage but Von Brunn’s lumping-together of Jews and Christians as one target is chillingly similar to Nazi views.

In "The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party," authors Scott Lively (a Christian pastor) and Kevin Abrams (an Orthodox Jew) cite a publication by racial theorist Dietrich Hutton, titled "Defilement of Race," widely circulated in Nazi Germany:

“Through the German soul and through unadulterated German blood, the world will be able to return to a state of health, but only after it has been freed from the curse of Judaism and of Christianity….The way in which Christianity is directed in the interests of world Jewry and its attitude toward Judaism is traceable to the undeniable fact that the founders and proclaimers of the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth were full-blooded Jews....It cannot therefore be coincidence…that consciously makes Christians...deviate from the fundamental tenets of conserving nationality and cultivating race. The reason for this is to defile non-Jewish races, weaken and destroy them so that Judaism, as the ‘chosen people,’ can...[erect] a world sovereignty on the ruins of the non-Jewish races which Christianity has destroyed. (p.3ff).”

Compare Hutton’s writings to Von Brunn’s, as reported by WND:

"The Gospels profess that only Christians may enter Yahweh's Kingdom of Heaven. To qualify, among other demands, Christians must LOVE THEIR ENEMIES (Jews) … and above all else worship YHWH, the jealous, wrathful, vengeful, unforgiving, genocidal, anthropomorphic tribal god (Jesus' father) created by Hebrews in their image and likeness….These dangerous…, tenets, and teachings…DESTROYED the Roman Empire and drenched the soil of Europe with Aryan blood for almost 2000 years!"

Von Brunn’s alleged crimes should remind everyone of the close spiritual kinship of Christians and Jews, and (remembering what happened in Germany) that it is only America's commitment to our common Judeo-Christian moral foundations that makes actions like his a social rarity and not the norm.

Said Dr. Lively: “The only antidote to racist poison is unity under God.”
