Alabama ministry regrets billboard favorably quoting Hitler

Saying it never “intended to cause confusion,” an Alabama children’s ministry took down a billboard favorably quoting Adolf Hitler’s love for children.

Next to a photo of five smiling kids, the billboard at the Village Mall in Auburn, Alabama proudly quoted the mastermind of World War II and the Holocaust: “He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future.”

The quote is followed by a red signature line reading “Adolf Hitler.”

According to the Ledger-Enquirer, the founder of Life Savers Ministries now has second thoughts about quoting the Führer:

“Herbert Hoover would have been a far better one to quote.”

Ya think? A bit more on the Hitler Youth:
