Adolf Hitler promises in an article printed in the Völkischer Beobachter that the Nazi Party will not be dragged into "religious disputes." This policy of religious neutrality becomes official policy of the Nazi Party.

What his policy of religious neutrality means is that the Nazi Party will refuse to take sides in disagreements between Protestant and Catholic churches or, later on, between different Protestant churches. One reason is to ensure the broadest possible support among Germans for the Nazis; a second reason may be that Hitler is already thinking about plans to nationalize German Christianity in order to eliminate competing confessional churches entirely.
