Condemned Generation

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
-- George Santayana
I read "How Far Do You Trust Your Pastor?" earlier and now, I'm watching PBS' "American Experience: The Man behind Hitler," as I blog this entry. Wow! To think that Hitler made it up to the top of Germany via election, not by force.

What really got to me was when Goebbels talked about religion and wanting to replace Christianity with National Socialism. I found the following blurb, online:
the Nazi Party's political platform, which was adopted in 1920, supported freedom of religion for all Christian denominations, but as long "as they do not endanger [the German state's] existence or conflict with the customs and moral sentiments of the Germanic race."
So, how close are we (U.S.) to worshipping the State?
