lol... there are some who say so...
Mark, you will NOT believe! I looked Luther (Luder) up and really did some
reading. He was a RABID, I repeat RABID antisemite. In fact, Hilter (Mien
Kamf )quoted him and called him a great reformer. He was quoted by other
Nazis especially on his birthday WHICH was on Kristalnache, and it was NOT a
coinicidence that they chose his birthday in which to burn the German Jew's
synogogues and wreck their businesses. At about the age of 60, he wrote a
hate-filled book regarding Jews. Here's just a FEW quotes:
"If I had to baptise a Jew, I would take him to the bridge of the Elbe, hang
a stone around his neck and push him over with the words 'I baptise thee in
the name of Abraham'."
"Their synagogues ... should be set on fire."
"Either God must be unjust, or you, Jews, wicked and ungodly. You have been,
about fifteen hundred years, a race rejected of God."
"What shall we Christians do now with this depraved and damned people of the
Jews? ... I will give my faithful advice: First, that one should set fire to
their synagogues. . . . Then that one should also break down and destroy
their houses. . . . That one should drive them out the country."
"Their homes (Jews) should be broken down and destroyed. They ought to be
put under one roof or in a stable, like Gypsies, in order that they may
realize that they ... are ... but miserable captives."
"Moreover, they are nothing but thieves and robbers who daily eat no morsel
and wear no thread of clothing which they have not stolen and pilfered from
us by means of their accursed usury. Thus they live from day to day,
together with wife and child, by theft and robbery, as arch-thieves and
robbers, in the most impenitent security."
"Did I not tell you earlier that a Jew is such a noble, precious jewel that
God and all the angels dance when he farts."
I KNOW you'll like the last one... :)
