The Catholic Church suspends Rev. Wilhelm Senn from his priestly duties. Senn was one of the first Catholic priests to join the Nazi Party, though he wasn't the last. His pro-Nazi writings have been extreme enough for Catholic leaders to demand that he submit all writings to his superiors for approval, and he's broken his promise to do so.

Earlier this year, Rev. Wilhelm Senn wrote that Adolf Hitler and the Nazi movement are "instruments of divine providence."
