ID Advocates Trivialize Holocaust

Right-wing Christian broadcaster Dr. D. James Kennedy is airing a pseudo-documentary on August 26 and 27 on his Coral Ridge Hour that purports to connect the dots between Charles Darwin and Adolf Hitler.

Calling Kennedy a "Christian Supremacist," Anti-Defamation League National Director Abraham H. Foxman has called the program an "outrageous and shoddy attempt by D. James Kennedy to trivialize the horrors of the Holocaust."

Although a number of announced participants have now dropped out of the program, Kennedy plans to go ahead with the broadcast.

"To put it simply, no Darwin, no Hitler," says Kennedy. "Hitler tried to speed up evolution, to help it along, and millions suffered and died in unspeakable ways because of it."

Oh, really. Here's how Hitler publicly described his motivation:
"My feelings as a Christian points me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter. It points me to the man who once in loneliness, surrounded by a few followers, recognized these Jews for what they were and summoned men to fight against them and who, God's truth! was greatest not as a sufferer but as a fighter. In boundless love as a Christian and as a man I read through the passage which tells us how the Lord at last rose in His might and seized the scourge to drive out of the Temple the brood of vipers and adders. How terrific was His fight for the world against the Jewish poison. To-day, after two thousand years, with deepest emotion I recognize more profoundly than ever before the fact that it was for this that He had to shed His blood upon the Cross. As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice... And if there is anything which could demonstrate that we are acting rightly it is the distress that daily grows. For as a Christian I have also a duty to my own people.

Funny, there's no mention of Darwin there.
