Various other preachers launched their own ideas to fill the vacuum claimed by disowning the Catholic hierarchy. In Munster (Westphalia), the Anabaptist sect declared its theocratic "News Jerusalem" which persecuted anyone else like "16th century Taliban". German ruling princes and the English kingdom abused Luther's teaching to usurp great wealth and power from the church and shed imperial/papal authority. While Luther remained a revered authority, a pragmatic sex scandal -'dispensing' bigamy t accommodate Landgrave Philipp of Hessen, a vital general, contributed to the movement getting out of control, his writings -sometimes contradicted later, often in conservative sense- were wielded with an authority of their own. Plagued by ill health and superstition too, Luther grew ever more bitter, fat and cruel, as turning against the previously protected Jewry. The Reformation became, rather despite Luther, a motor of (often misled) emancipation and changed history forever, even the New World. Written by KGF Vissers See less
