Here are some famous quotes from the Reformer Martin Luther:
"If I had to baptize 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 baptize thee in the name of Abraham'"
"I maintain that some Jew wrote it (the Book of James) who probably heard about Christian people but never encountered any"
"The word and works of God is quite clear, that women were made either to be wives or prostitutes"
"I feel much freer now that I am certain the pope is the Antichrist"
"Who loves not wine, women and song, Remains a fool his whole life long"
"Jews and papists are ungodly wretches; they are two stockings made of one piece of cloth"
"We are at fault for not slaying them (the Jews)"
"He who hears this name (God) from a Jew must inform the authorities, or else throw sow dung at him when he sees him and chase him away"
Did this man hate all Jews, women, and the clergy of which he was part? Does anyone know if he was actually sane? How did he ever get to be a priest? I'm amazed because I never heard of these sayings by him while I was a part of the Baptist church. Are most Protestants unaware of the history of these Reformers?
