At the start of the war, the Catholic Church did support Hitler. As they opposed Communism because it advocated athiesm, they supported the right wing radical party. Hitler also signed a Concordant with the Catholic Church saying that their rights would be respected and that he would not interfere, as long as the Catholic Church did not speak out politically. A few years later he begun to attack the Catholic Church, and obviously they did not support him then.
Roman Catholic AnswerThe Catholic Church never supported Hitler.
Neither the protestant churches or the Catholic Church supported Hitler. The Catholic Pope was criticized during the war and after the war for not coming out openly or strongly against Hitler & Mussolini.
.Catholic AnswerCatholics do not "pretend" that the Church didn't support Hitler, they know that the Church didn't support Hitler. All of the proof is that Pope Pius XII did everything in his power to support and protect the Jews, Catholics, gypsies, and everybody else that Hitler was trying to exterminate. He ordered the Bishops to do everything possible, he opened convents and monasteries to hide people. The top Rabbi in the synagogue in Rome was so overwhelmed by the love and support that the Holy Father that he converted to the Catholic Church. The leaders in Israel all issued statements thanking the Holy Father and the Catholic Church for all that it had done. The only people who believe that the Catholic Church supported Hitler are the know-nothings in the present day press corps that are willing to repeat any vile unsubstantiated rumor against the Catholic Church, and the people who listen to them. Look at history, not the local entertainment news.

Hitler was raised a catholic and remained a member of the Catholic church until his death.
No, Adolf Hitler did not support the Catholic Church; he did, however, tolerate it. A bit of history will clear this notion. The Church was, to Hitler, a daunting enemy with which he sought to deal as it would interfere with his plans for the 1000 year Reich. He plotted to kidnap the Pope and the Curia (Kirchenkampf)- however, his plans were thwarted as many generals, including Von Wolf, thought that would cause the "catholic troops" to revolt. Much has been written about this subject and I would suggest you look at the links below for a more thorough study of the subject.
