I’ve been doing some reading on the Protestant reformation lately (though I think I’m going to start referring to it as a revolt, since “reform” means making changes to improve something, and that isn’t what the Protestant reform . . . revolters did).
I came across this little ditty that I just had to share.
From H. W. Crocker’s fantastic book, Triumph: The Power and Glory of the Catholic Church—A 2000 Year History
“In one of his many . . . combats with the devil—in which Luther would challenge the devil to “lick” his posterior—Luther thought the best tactic might be to “throw him into my anus, where he belongs.” How one wishes for an exegesis by Dr. Sigmund Freud of that passage.”
 Quoted in William Manchester, A World Lit Only by Fire: The Medieval Mind and the Renaissance (Little, Brown & Company, 1993), p. 140.
