Actually I resent anybody that makes such comparisons to anybody now being like Hitler was. The times: the late 1930’s through the middle 1940’s were entirely different, the men: Hitler and Chamberlain were also entirely different, and even the countries: England and Germany, were totally different than any exist today.
Yes, it is true that Chamberlain was considerably naive and duped. But, I would ask the same ultra conservative right wing religious Christians types that always seem to condemn him, this: Have you ever actually bothered to even read the words of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ? Or what would Jesus say, let alone do?Perhaps they should try reading Matthew 5 (the beginning of The Sermon On The Mount), verse 9, “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.”So I would say that Neville Chamberlain’s eternal soul (even naive and duped) has found a far more pleasant place to spend eternity, than the soul of the man who duped him: Adolph Hitler. That is, of course, if you are a true Christian that believes in a just God!!
