Luther Wasn’t A Fan of St Valentine’s Day

So, while he lectured on Deuteronomy, he said

The papists have represented God as a very swift Avenger if anyone, at the impulse of the devil, had harmed a cleric. Thus they also made out of St. Anthony, Sebastian, Valentine, and Roch a sort of Baal Peor for the nurturing of their stomachs.

You Won’t be getting a card from Luther on Valentine’s Day.  Don’t expect one.  He’s not interested in celebrating your Baal.
