Nail Your Colours to the Fußboden

Kitting up for the Bremen Kirchentag, I notice one essential for non-flaky Christians everywhere — Die Luthersocke.

Each pair bears the immortal slogan — “Hier stehe ich. Ich kann nicht anders. (Here I stand. I can do nothing else)

Available to all in five colours (not only Anglicans), it’s a sure-fire way for clergy everywhere to prove their Standhaftigkeit and disprove idiotic allegations that they aren’t resolute enough. Good for lazy so-and-so’s, too. Your own personal Diet of Worms to go (or not, as the case may be). The Boy can now nail his feet to the burning deck, whence all but he have fled. God helps those who help themselves for 7 Euros, here. Amen.

What's next? Martin Luther King "I have a dream" feather pillows?

'“Hier stehe ich. Ich kann nicht anders.'

He could do no other? Didn't he have free will?

Thanks for comments: Sounds like I should buy a few pairs in Bremen rather than try and do it on the internet...

Steven, whilst you were trolling about something in a way that sounds as though you don't understand it at all, you have accidentally hit on a significant question in Luther studies — the Erasmus/ Luther debate of the mid 1520's. Many Congratulations! I will not, however, go down this particular rabbit hole here unless there is some evidence that anyone else wants to go there, and will insist you read DSA first.
