Munich (Mar. 6)
Refusal to worship Jesus Christ, because he is a Jew and rejection of Christianity because it is of Jewish origin are being advocated by the National Party, the most anti-Semitic political faction in German public life. The latest movement on the part of the Nationalist Party is attributed in great part to the anti-Catholic and anti-Jewish address made by General Ludendorff when he appeared before the court which is trying him, Hitler and a number of others for treason in connection with the unsuccessful “putsch” of last November.
The Catholic press in Bavaria has inaugurated a vigorous counter-propaganda against the newest Nationalist movement, which is charged with being desirous of a restoration of ancient German paganism.
