Man, for a guy who believed in strict biblical salvation, Martin Luther sure got the wrong message from the parable of Good Samaritan. Ikanreed (talk) 14:34, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

I had to read this thing for my Theology essay. Has anyone else read translations of the book? At the beginning he uses the "I'm Not Racist... BUT..." strategy (he essentially says "I don't have a problem with Jews, it's just that they're all evil liars"). Luther later claims that that all Jews LITERALLY see Gentiles (who he repeatedly refers to as Goyim in anger) as disgusting things like animals and women. This part feels like a prototype of "Anti-Racist is codeword for Anti-White" by way of "if anyone's racist it's them". By the end of his life, Luther claims there is a big Jewish conspiracy against Europe and that they're working to undermine the economy. Bla-Bla-Bla, let's bring in forced labour so they can finally work for their daily bread... bla-bla-bla, if anyone disagrees with my bigoted views, they're a Shill for the Jewish Conspiracy. In short, the man uses virtually every argument and tactic in racist speeches.-- Forerunner (talk) 18:56, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
