When It Comes to Hurling Insults, No One Is Better Than….

Luther-

  • It is presumptuous for people who are as ignorant as you are not to take up the work of a herdsman.
  • You are the ultimate scourges of the world, the Antichrist together with your sophists and bishops.
  • Here now, you ass, with your long donkey ears and accursed liar’s mouth!
  • If you who are assembled in a council are so frivolous and irresponsible as to waste time and money on unnecessary questions, when it is the business of a council to deal only with the important and necessary matters, we should not only refuse to obey you, but consider you insane or criminals.
  • As far as I have been able to see and hear, you have no argument but high-sounding words of sacrilege. Everyone ought properly to shun and avoid you as messengers of none other than the devil.
  • You are desperate, thorough arch-rascals, murderers, traitors, liars, the very scum of all the most evil people on earth. You are full of all the worst devils in hell – full, full, and so full that you can do nothing but vomit, throw, and blow out devils [from your a**]!

I could go on.  For hours.  If ad hominem bothers you, precious snowflake, never ever read Luther.
