Allow me to intervene. This thread is not for debating The Passion of The Christ. If you wish, you may start a separate thread. For now, let's focus on "Luther."

Oh, absolutely. No one would be caught selling indulgences, church offices and every other blasted thing they had for sale to raise $$ for some archbishops' fee. All of this stuff was actually against proper Church teaching, but the officials of the day couldn't be bothered with the rules. Luther's advantage over earlier reformers was that he had the printing press to print vernacular Bibles with. Jan Hus did not, and he went to the stake.
