THE TRUE ORIGINATOR OF THE "NAZI PUNKS FUCK OFF" PATCH

It's the birthday of my favorite liberal theologian/humanist/ father of "Death of God" theology Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who blvd that it was true Christian duty to act radically in the face of injustice, so he conspired to kill Hitler, a plot which he hung for. PBS did a nice doc. about him a few years ago that you can probably check out at any decent sized library. He was a Christian activist with a big fat problem with Christianity, got his spiritual education in Harlem, smuggled Jews into Switzerland, wrote a gang of books and papers. Theres a tidy overview for you here.
