I'm surprised you choose to take a position. I'm not interested in joining your religion, dude.
Out of curiosity, which side do you think I am on? (And of what issue?) Do you mean, that I expressed sympathy for the peasant uprising? Or because I'm somewhat critical of the Reformers for refusing to follow through on the social implications of their movement?
What a strange criticism…
What a strange criticism from Michael. I think you presented everything perfectly reasonable. Commenting on medieval social inequality is not the same as pushing a modern political/religious agenda surely. Been listening for five years, keep up the good work!
Thanks so much! To be honest I am still curious what sort of bias I was being accused of there. I found it odd too, like, are there people who look back and say "boy those peasants they really deserved what was coming to them"? I guess we may never know what he meant!
