Talk about a scratchy guy, Martin Luther takes the cake. Luther became so disgruntled with the sale of indulgences by the Roman Catholic Church that he nailed his earth-shaking 95 Theses to the door of a German Church in 1517, ultimately resulting in the Protestant Reformation. If not for the advent of printing press in 1452, Luther most likely would have been just another excommunicated monk burned at the sake, but the mass distribution of his ideas save him from that.
Well, now there’s a website that may be even more annoying that Luther. Want to be insulted? There’s a link for that:
“Are you ignorant of what it means to be ignorant.”
“You are the devil’s most dangerous tool!”
“You hold fast to human dreams and the doctrines of devils.”
“How is it, then, that you drivel like people in their second childhood.”
And that’s just a sampling. Feel free to be insulted endlessly, thanks to Martin Luther.
And Martin Luther is a major player, by the way, in my Comm455/History of Journalism: From Gutenberg to Zuckerberg class in the fall (T/R 10:30 a.m.).
