German Anti-semites Turn to Pagan Worship


The extent of the Anti-Semitic movement in Germany can be gauged by the fact that there are several Nationalist bodies, such as the “German Order,” which are actually worshipping Wotan, and other ancient Germanic gods, in an effort to get rid of all association with the Jews through Christianity.

This is in line with a previously reported incident in the Protestant Lorenz Church in Nuremberg, when, during a flag consecration cememony, the clergyman pronouncing the blessing over the banner in the name of “Our Lord, Jesus Christ,” was interrupted by loud cries from all parts of the church. “Away with that son of a Jew!” “We don’t want that son of a Jew!”
