    Absolutely correct, how many Jews and Christians tried to appease Hitler, hoping they would be subjected to the horror last or even, out last the horror. How many sunshine patriots and fair weather friends of liberty feed the national establishment of religion in the Union of Socialist Amerika (USA), hoping the appeasement will allow one more day of materialism's expansion or of a view of one more day's rising sun?
