If you've studied why the German people didn't seem to "get" what was happening to the Jews in their midst, here are some clues. For one thing, most of the Lutheran churches had long abandoned their evangelical viewpoint and had entered the world of liberal Protestantism . But their liberal Protestantism was a very strange hybrid. It was very anti-Semitic (meaning anti-Jewish). They blanked out most of the Bible so it read that Jesus was an Aryan and not a Jew. This isn't really surprising, as in liberal Protestantism, you really can deconstruct the Bible text any way you wish. Another important factor was the intense propaganda directed by the Third Reich government toward the Jews. They were portrayed as slimy, rat-looking, dirty people who went around seducing young innocent German women. This would be funny if it weren't so serious. Jew are the cleanest people around because of their cleanliness rituals. Even most secular Jews keep themselves very clean because of that tradition.
If you are paying attention to the news in the past years, that is, the mainstream media, you might have noticed an ongoing oneslought
against us evangelical Christians. We are portrayed as all living in the rural south (or sometimes rural Midwest, but not west of Kansas), with an eighth grade education, almost no teeth, and we don't talk too good. In this worldview there couldn't be any evangelicals on the Westside of L.A. (there are), or on Long Island (there are many there) or in Cambridge, Massachusetts (there are scads there). And of course absolutely zero in Beverly Hills (there are quite a few including some stars in the entertainment industry). The sad thing is I don't think most of these news liberals even knows and evangelical. Tammy Bruce was the past president of the large chapter of the Los Angeles branch of the feminist organization, NOW. She took a feminist stand on domestic abuse that didn't sit well with her national NOM Masters (or should that be Mistresses?). After she was fired she received myriads of supportive letters from....gasp! Yes, from evangelical Christians agreeing with Bruce's stance against domestic abuse. Tammy was aghast! She had been taught by her NOW friends that evangelical Christians were her enemies. This so confused her that she went back to those friends and asked if any of them had ever met an evangelical Christian. They all told her they hadn't.
I rest my case.
