I don't think so. contrary to popular opinion that the clergy were nothing but stooges of the reich , i believe they were secretly trying to stab the leadership in the back and in fact succeeded in sabotaging the war efforts by demoralizing their communities.

Indeed: relgion and churches have a lot to do with 'belief'.
And "yes", some church leaders succeeded in demoralising their communities (that's called "parishes", when speaking about churches, by the way).

Actually, it is a little known fact that all Catholic priests and Protestant ministers in Germany in the 1930s were secretly Jews working for the destruction of Germany and all that was good and decent in the white race.
