Ask Ouster of All Jews from Clergy and Church Offices

A demand for the ouster of all clergy and church officials of Jewish descent is made of the Archbishop by the Nazi press.

The papers declare that a Jew even though he becomes a priest through the baptismal font, cannot become a son of the German people.

They charge that the Christian clergymen of Jewish descent are opposed to the German nationalist movement and that they impose difficulties in the way of the Nazis, even in church ceremonies.
