It's not like we can't find his writings on this...

Richard Steigmann-Gall saw evidence of a "Christian element" in Hitler's early writings.[80] In Mein Kampf, Steigmann-Gall saw "no indication of [Hitler] being an atheist or agnostic or of believing in only a remote, rationalist divinity, writing that Hitler referred continually to a providential, active deity."[81]

"Hence today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord."[82]

"His [the Jewish person's] life is only of this world, and his spirit is inwardly as alien to true Christianity as his nature two thousand years previous was to the great founder of the new doctrine. Of course, the latter made no secret of his attitude toward the Jewish people, and when necessary he even took to the whip to drive from the temple of the Lord this adversary of all humanity, who then as always saw in religion nothing but an instrument for his business existence. In return, Christ was nailed to the cross, while our present-day party Christians debase themselves to begging for Jewish votes at elections and later try to arrange political swindles with atheistic Jewish parties—and this against their own nation."[83]

RE: Religious fanatics or Psychological issue?
Mein Kampf was also heavily influenced by the writings Friedrich Nietzsche & no one could accuse Neitzsche of being pro Christian.
For example......

Quote:“This eternal accusation against Christianity I shall write upon all walls, wherever walls are to be found--I have letters that even the blind will be able to see. . . . I call Christianity the one great curse, the one great intrinsic depravity, the one great instinct of revenge, for which no means are venomous enough, or secret, subterranean and small enough,--I call it the one immortal blemish upon the human race...”
Friedrich Nietzsche, The Anti Christ

We all believe in something greater than ourselves. Even if it's just the blind forces of chance. Ambassador G'Kar.

As I included in the previous post quoted above Hitler gave statements in public that were contrary to his actual views for propaganda purposes. Any quotes from Mein Kampf would be included in that category.

Believer: Black cats are bad luck.
Non-believer: It's just a cat.
Crackpot: Black cats are part of the New World Order government conspiracy.
Skeptic: I can test if black cats are more or less lucky than another cat.
Cynic: You only have a black cat to gain power and prestige.
