(For what it's worth, scholars now doubt that they were actually nailed to any church doors by Luther, but he did mail them out on the day we now observe as Halloween -- October 31, 1517.)
Unfortunately many ignore or lightly pass over Luther's virulent anti-semitism and his subsequent siding with the princes in the Peasants' Revolt and their slaughter of 100,000.
Of course, being a Catholic, I know all about institutional anti-semitism and the indifference to, or even support of, right-wing war criminals, including Hitler.
I wonder how many of today's neo-Nazis and white supremacists know that Martin Luther and Martin Luther King Jr. are two very different men.
They are more than familiar with the latter, finding his views of inclusion and empowerment of the poor anathema.
Yet these fascists would find much to applaud in the former's writings.
Fortunately, more and more Protestants, Catholics and many others, including Muslims, are defying Martin Luther's exhortations about Jews and our modern-day peasants.
