Hmm. What to say, what to say, what to say?
Not that. Not that. Not that. Oh, here’s this. Seems to be a sad reality that people, as they become more committed to their doctrines, become more willing to do radical thing to “defend” them. Crusades. Burning of “heretics.” Anabaptist violence. Bombing of abortion clinics.
The Munsterites were totally whacked. I see them as very different beasts than … say … the Mennonites. I find the attempt (pretty successful attempt) by contemporaneous reformers to paint all Anabaptists with the Muntzer brush to be pretty cynical (unless they REALLY couldn’t see the difference).
Char. You have managed to offend me again. (HA!)
