A Critique: Is it Curse or Philosophy?

Frederick Nietzsche, as a prominent philosopher of his time, is known for his attack on Christian values and morality, and he concluded as Christianity as a source for these sickly socio-moral values as a result of fabricated hatred of priests towards master traits of noble men. I argue that his total claim on it is as a result of either misunderstanding of Christian values or a deliberate retreat of Nietzsche to cope up with the values of Christianity. Unless or otherwise his philosophic claim shaped or his total philosophical war on Christianity and morality would fail or faced by contradiction
