Your daily inspiration from Martin Luther

On the role of women in the church:
“Women ought to stay at home; the way they were created indicates this, for they have broad hips and a wide fundament to sit upon.” 
- Martin Luther, Table Talk, 55

On Social Justice:
“To kill a peasant is not murder; it is helping to extinguish the conflagration. Let there be no half measures! Crush them! Cut their throats! Transfix them. Leave no stone unturned! To kill a peasant is to destroy a mad dog!” – “If they say that I am very hard and merciless, mercy be damned. Let whoever can stab, strangle, and kill them like mad dogs.”
- Martin Luther, ref. Erlangen Vol 24, Pg. 294
