"I have followed [the Church] in giving our party program the character of unalterable finality, like the Creed. The Church has never allowed the Creed to be interfered with. It is fifteen hundred years since it was formulated, but every suggestion for its amendment, every logical criticism, or attack on it, has been rejected. The Church has realized that anything and everything can be built up on a document of that sort, no matter how contradictory or irreconcilable with it.
The faithful will swallow it whole, so long as logical reasoning is never allowed to be brought to bear on it."
- Adolf Hitler, from Rauschning, The Voice of Destruction, pp. 239-40
