    Amazing projection by the TV talking heads. If only Luther could have controlled his lust. The religious reformations transformed Europe and England into the basket cases we see today. Imagine a Catholic English monarchy, that stayed true to the Moral Law.

    Sir Thomas More: “Oh? And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned ’round on you, where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country is planted thick with laws, from coast to coast, Man’s laws, not God’s! And if you cut them down, and you’re just the man to do it, do you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then? Yes, I’d give the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety’s sake!”
