#ICYMI- Fun Facts From Church History: The End of Jan Matthys

MatthysWhat’s that you say?  You aren’t familiar with the Radical Reformation’s own leading crackpot loon nutbag weirdo?  You should be, because today is the anniversary of his receiving his just desserts.  Or as the fine folk at Refo500 tweeted a few years back-

5. April 1534: Jan Matthys, „Prophet“ und Führer des münsterschen #Täuferreiches, getötet.

He was nuts.  Happy Jan Matthys Day (or as I prefer to call it- Happy Deliverance From Maniacal Murderous Self-Serving Heretic Day.)
