"In 1543 Luther published *On the Jews and Their Lies* in which he says that the Jews are a "base, whoring people, that is, no people of God, and their boast of lineage, circumcision, and law must be accounted as filth." They are full of the "devil's feces ... which they wallow in like swine."] The synagogue was a "defiled bride, yes, an incorrigible whore and an evil slut ..." He argues that their synagogues and schools be set on fire, their prayer books destroyed, rabbis forbidden to preach, homes razed, and property and money confiscated. They should be shown no mercy or kindness, afforded no legal protection, and these "poisonous envenomed worms" should be drafted into forced labor or expelled for all time. *He also seems to advocate their murder, writing "[w]e are at fault in not slaying them*"." - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Luther_and_antisemitism I'm not trying to embarrass you Roger, but you seem to have a habit of proclaiming the polar opposite of the truth as obvious fact. I don't think that you do this intentionally, or are part of a White-Christian-Conservative supremacist cult bent on historical revisionism, but you do seem to take some lazy liberties with the truth which require a rather more ignorant audience to allow than the one you have on this list.
