In Praise of Luther, the Great!




I can see why His Holiness would want to spend time with Lutherans and venerate him just a little. After all, Luther Vandross was a pioneer of classic 80s soul music, music which brought many people together in the bars, the pubs and clubs. A lot of us remember the ups and downs of the 80s and Luther was there, often in the background, on the radio, on Top of the Pops, singing his soul music always with a smile. His Holiness is right to highlight his impact on Western culture and his artistic contribution to society. I am sure all the Lutherans went home very happy from their meeting with the Pope, knowing that Mr Vandross's musical contribution had received recognition from the highest levels of the Church.

Happily for Mr Vandross, 'Luther' and ' lucifer' have divergent etymologies, though Luther and Lucifer have contemporary powerbases. 2017 should clear any addled brains that thought themselves Catholic, but will find themselves in need of conversion - conversion in a dearth of Priests. Salza and Siscoe won't help us out then.

Don't forget the billionaire supervillain, Lex Luthor.
"Luthor has carefully crafted his public persona in order to avoid suspicion and arrest. He is well known for his philanthropy, donating vast sums of money to Metropolis over the years, funding parks, foundations, and charities."

Philanthropy is key - never mind all that fussy doctrine...
