Robert Ley, head of the Deutsche Arbeitsfront (German Labor Front), delivers a speech to Nazi Party leaders extolling the recent victories of Germany and arguing that the current peace and prosperity in Germany are a signs that Germany has once again found God.
"No one has greater reverence for god and creation than we do. The priests do not hate us because we are "godless," since they get along nicely with the godless in Russia and Spain. They hate us because we are the only ones who believe in God.
We are finding God, indeed we have already found him. Where does the desire for God come from, where does faith come from, or true piety, if not from God? I know only one way to tell: If a person quietly and contemplatively faces events.
One must be confident and self-assured, not afraid and nervous. Then I can say: "You have a god. You are not worried, you do not run around like chicken with its head cut off, but rather you stay calm."
Look at our people today, and remember how they were ten or twenty years ago. If that is the measure of whether one believes in God or not, if one faces everything that fate brings, if one faces war or peace calmly, if one faces life calmly and lives it the same way, then one has God.
To have God means to have a fixed point in life, to have God means to have faith. I do not know what the future will bring, since I am only a man, but I am not concerned. English newspapers write: "Germany will gain no advantage from Bohemia and Moravia."
One doesn't know which is more astonishing: the Führer's pace or the peace with which 80 million Germans accept what happens. That means we have God: we are calm, we have faith and confidence — just like the priests always say.
Yes, the Führer gave confidence to every German, and therefore peace and faith. We have found God."
