Killing in God's name

The Editor:

Re Michael Coren: "Killing in God's name,"

I was surprised to see Michael Coren lump Adolf Hitler in with the atheist leaders. Raised Catholic, the German dictator was prone to giving his policies the imprimatur of the Almighty. In his autobiography Mein Kampf he informs readers: "And so I believe to-day that my conduct is in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator. In standing guard against the Jew I am defending the handiwork of the Lord." There are atheists who are naturally kind and good, while many believers of different stripes justify cruel and selfish deeds in the name of their religious faith. Better an inquiring agnostic mind, I say, than a viciously fanatical heart.
