Adolf Hitler delivers a speech before the Reichstag which in turn passes the Enabling Act, a law which turns all legislative power over to Hitler. No longer will he need to seek Reichstag support for his goals. He makes many promises, for example that basic rights and the independence of the states will not be touched, but all promises will eventually be broken.
Hitler also says:
"In being determined to undertake the political and moral purification of our public life, the government is creating and securing the requirements for a genuinely profound return to religious life.
The advantages in personnel policy which might result from compromises with atheist organizations do not come close to offsetting the results which would become apparent in the general destruction of basic moral values.
The National Government perceives in the two Christian confessions the most important factors for the preservation of our Volkstum. It will respect any contracts concluded between these Churches and the Länder. ...
However, it cannot tolerate that membership in a certain confession or a certain race could mean being released from general statutory obligations or even constitute a license for committing or tolerating crimes which go unpunished. The Government's concern lies in an honest coexistence between Church and State; the fight against a materialist Weltanschauung and for a genuine Volksgemeinschaft equally serves both the interests of the German nation and the welfare of our Christian faith. ...
the Reich Government, which regards Christianity as the unshakable foundation of the ethics and morality of the Volk, places great value on friendly relations with the Vatican and attempts to develop them."
All members of the Catholic Center Party vote in favor of the Enabling Act and their votes are crucial to its passage. Having all communist and most socialist members of the Reichstag arrested before the vote also helps.
When the vote is held, only 91 Reichstag delegates - all of them Socialists - vote against giving Hitler dictatorial powers. In short order, all parties except the Nazi Party will be outlawed.
