As I read books and articles by proponents of Nietzsche (i.e. Walter Kaufmann), a particular emphasis disturbs me. In their desperate attempts to clear Nietzsche’s name of anti-Semitism, hence an influence on Nazism, they vehemently insist that he was merely anti-Christian and not against the religion that birthed Christianity. As if that somehow okay, pure, kosher. (pardon the pun)
Here is an example from Nietzsche: Philosopher, Psychologist, Antichrist by Walter Kaufmann:
Completely reversing the claims of the professional anti-Semites, he pictures Christianity as the miscarriage of Judaism and finds no expression low enough to describe the early Christians.
Just venting a little.
