What Luther Thought of the Papacy

This damned ass-pope and his accursed school of scoundrels in Rome take such great, immeasurable pleasure in making a monkey, fool, and laughingstock of the poor Christian man, indeed, in blaspheming against God in heaven and causing such idolatry in his holy church—he laughs up his sleeve to see such blasphemous, idolatrous lies worshiped, and robs and steals the goods and obedience of the whole world for it—that one is forced to understand that the papacy is (as was said above) the very image of the devil set in the church by the devil to do nothing but instigate lies, blasphemy, and idolatry in order to destroy faith and God’s word, and thus rob the world under him of all it has and owns and lead all the souls to the devil.
