A Catholic priest in the Rhineland objects to the constant vilification of Jews. He is fined 500 Reichsmarks for "abuse of the pulpit." Although this may have been perceived as a serious punishment, it's unlikely that the Nazi regime would have been able to maintain such punishments if large number of clergy had insisted on following this priest's example.

Because they don't and because their own superiors in the Catholic Church refuse to support any critical statements about either attacks on Jews or the destruction of civil liberties, this one priest can be easily singled out and punished.
