May 13, 1559

On May 13, 1559, Netherlands Anabaptist leader, David Joris, had his three year old corpse exhumed in Basel. His corpse was then convicted of heresy and burned as punishment. Turns out people with grudges can still act childish and throw stones even after you die. The person with a grudge? His son-in-law Anabaptist leader Nicolas van Blesdiik. It also turns out that even if everyone around you is Protestant, they may not be the exact kind of Protestant to make you happy with their beliefs. It isn’t about religious freedom, it’s making sure everyone else believes exactly as I do. Exactly as I do. All hail the Cthulhuian Spaghetti Monster and his many noodly tentacles of doom, doom, doom.
