"Research is what I'm doing when I don't know what I'm doing."
- Wernher Von Braun (1912-1977)
"The rocket worked perfectly except for landing on the wrong planet," Von Braun remarked to his colleagues after London was hit by the first V-2 (he led the development) on 7 September 1944.
Belief in God and in immortality thus gives us the moral strength and the ethical guidance we need for virtually every action in our daily lives. -- Wernher von Braun [hyperarts.com], who designed and built the most powerful weapons the IIIrd Reich.
Von Braun and 500 others surrendered to the U.S. He and the other rocket scientists were taken back to the U.S. In 1955, he became an American citizen. Von Braun was held in high regard by the scientific community and went on to work for the U.S. military and later NASA.
I'm curious. Why do you insinuate that he was a noted Nazi? The very page that you linked seems to show that he was a Christian. You can't be both a Nazi and a Christian.

Any Catholic that is not a Christian is a non-believer.
"Ergo, everyone who professes to believe in the teachings of the Christ, (so every Catholic for example), is Christian, by definition."

How can a believer in Christ believe that Jews are not human? Christ Himself is half-Jewi
Answers per sentence mentioned:
Yes. Yes. Yes & No. Yes. JP II apologized because the church didn't stand against the Nazi's for most of the third reich.
Fact: Hitler hated religions (of any kind) and a lot of Priests and Pastors ended their lives in the same vecinity as most german jews.
Hitler planned on replacing all religions with a state religion and actively got rid of all organizations... he just hadn't time yet to rid his third reich of christianity.
