    Nazi ideology was based exclusively on the notion of race superiority, lebesraum and the cult of Hitler. Although Germany was Christian, and quite pious, and although the Churches were anti-Semitic, Nazi ideology was based on secular notions of eugenics and the will to absolute power. Although Himler, for example, originally came from a practicing Catholic family, his personal theology was based on old Teutonic myths which glorified, what in is eyes were, superior Aryan tribes. If you ever learned to think logically, you would realize that whereas the Churches accepted conversions, the Nazis did not, precisely because their Jew hatred was based on supposed racial inferiority. The original Nuremberg laws of 1935 had two very important words in the title: "blood" and "honor." The law was meant to purify German blood, and German honor.
