Jay Constantine's avatar Jay Constantine Vote Code: 65711

Martin Luther, the so-called hero of Protestantism, has been widely criticized for his response to the German Peasant Revolt of 1524. The German Aristocracy violently suppressed the revolt and slaughtered up to 100,000 Peasants. Luther mercilessly condemned the peasants who were simply for fighting for a better life.
