This question is inspired by What were Hitler's religious beliefs?
So they have well documented records on how Hitler actually tried to change/replace christianity.
What other similar records that are like that but for other leaders or other religions?
Basically records where:
- The religious leaders pretend to have one position
- His position is actually significantly different
- He wanted to change things not based on actual metaphysical belief (Hitler seems to be an atheist) but based on political consideration
I think I've heard that King of England established Anglican church so he can divorce his wife. I've heard filiolog is added to justify attacking constantinople. Then Shiah develops out of hatred of Yazid that slaughtered Muhammad's decendants. The last one was at least partially honest. So what's the rest? And how well documented the records are?
