Cardinal Michael von Faulhaber Hails Hitler as Intelligent and Sympathetic Leader

Bavarian Cardinal Michael von Faulhaber attends a meeting of Catholic students in the Löwenbräu Beer Cellar in Munich to discuss Adolf Hitler's recent Beer Hall Putsch. Faulhaber laments that this "originally pure spring had been poisoned by later tributaries," but insists that Hitler knows full well that the restoration of Germany will depend upon Christianity.

This exemplifies the attitude generally adopted by Catholic Church leaders in Germany throughout the Nazi era: National Socialism is basically a sound political ideology which can work with Catholicism; Adolf Hitler is an intelligent, sympathetic political leader who will work with us against communism, modernism, liberalism, and all the other ills of modern society.

There are a few anti-Christians elements which have infected this basically good and decent political ideology, it is true, but Catholic leaders expect that Hitler will suppress them so all Germans can move forward together.
