Not Martin Luther King... Which was the name he changed his and his Sons name to after visiting Germany, the original Martin Luther.... You know, the one who founded the Lutherin Church.

Come on dude, keep with the program.

Oh that one, the "second" Protestant, after RD's hero, Huss.

Even Luther read Hus's work a century after he was burned at the stake and famously said, “We are all Hussites without knowing it.”

Yeah, for sure, Hus came before Luther but Luther managed to not get burned and made the Reformation stick. 

Still, you are correct.  I like my man Jan Hus.

Different times and being a dissident/heretic could be fatal back then, but I believe in changing things from the inside. Difficult again because he was given the Papal Bull, but how much better had Catholicism been reformed without all the corruption etc instead of an independent reformation.

What is for me at least similarly troubling is Vatican11, and the general dumbing down to make it easier for break away faiths to reunite. I am not against reunification, but more the dumbing down. Make people lift their game, not find the lowest common denominator.

Re: Martin Luther makes it into Netflix

Luther never wanted there to be such a thing as Lutheranism.  He simply wanted to reform the church.
