Catholic bishops in Paderborn declare that Catholics cannot be members of the Nazi Party.

According to the statement from the bishops:

"National Socialism is not only a political party, it also represents a total world outlook. As such it involves an attitude toward religion and it poses demands in the area of religion."

This is not an explicit rejection of National Socialism nor is it a claim that Nazi and Catholic beliefs conflict. Instead, it reads more like a concern that there might be competition between the two in a person's mind when their focus should be on Catholicism.
