Protestant Supporters of National Socialism

  • 1st Picture for document

Friedrich Wieneke, the pastor of the cathedral in Soldin and a district youth pastor, appraised National Socialism’s attitude toward Christianity positively in the Deutsches Pfarrerblatt, a periodical for pastors, in November of 1930. He believed in the party’s positive Christianity and did not find the swastika and Cross of Christ contradictory. Wieneke perceived a core of common ground in the conception of Volk, which he maintained was not a theory conceived by humans but a reality created and established by God from the very beginning.
