Two Catholic Journalists Label the Nazi Movement a Plague

Christian History

Fritz Gerlich and Ingbert Naab, both Catholic journalists, write in the journal Der Gerade Weg (The Straight Path) that the Nazi movement is a "plague."

Gerlich and Naab go on to say:

"National Socialism means enmity with neighboring countries, despotism in internal affairs, civil war, international war.

National Socialism means lies, hatred, fratricide, and unbounded misery. Adolf Hitler preaches the law of lies. You who have fallen victim to the deception of one obsessed with despotism, wake up!"

At no point does anyone in the hierarchy of the Catholic Church, not even those most critical and suspicious of the Nazis, go nearly so far in offering such a direct attack on Nazi ideology.
