Vatican's Exorcist: Hitler and Stalin Were Posessed By Satan

Since he has a lot of proximity with the new Pope, he would know--Benedict was in the Hitler Youth and volunteered for the Wermacht (Army). I don't have to tell you the title of Father Amorth's favorite movie. It gets-better: "According to secret Vatican documents recently released wartime pontiff Pope Pius XII attempted a "long-distance" exorcism of Hitler which failed to have any effect." Why didn't they just excommunicate him? Yes, Hitler (real name, Adolf Schickelgruber) was a Catholic who was never excommunicated. The fall of the Hollerzollen dynasty, and the abdication of the Kaiser left a power-vacuum. War-reparations, then the Great Depression made a fertile soil for National Socialism and Hitler. People were starving, people were desperate, looking for someone with solutions--any solutions. So much for the Devil. At one point, Hitler had entertained the idea of the priesthood.

What about Stalin (real name, Iosif Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili)? He had attempted training as a priest in the Eastern Orthodox Church, like Rasputin. He was expelled for insubordination, a trait he shared with Hitler. But, the cobbler's son couldn't fit-into the discipline of Orthodox monasticism, so he became a roadside-thief, and later a bank-robber for the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party and the Bolsheviks after the failed 1905 Revolution in Russia. But why did Stalin act the way he did? Why did he order the murders of millions? His father beat him, which was common, but Russia faced a demographic disaster caused by WWI. Infrastructure was destroyed, and faith in traditional-authority vanished after Tsar Nicholas II's unwise move to head the military in a losing-war. A power-vacuum existed within social chaos, where criminals like Stalin could flourish and climb to power. So, when someone like Exorcist Amorth tell us "the Devil made them do it," we should know they were the source. Human beings made these atrocities, we are responsible for them, not the Easter Bunny.
