I came across two interesting blog articles refuting the notion that "Martin Luther possibly equivocated on the sinfulness of homosexual behavior..."
Luther the Progressive? (Part 1)
Luther the Progressive? (Part 2)
I would have handled the source material differently. For instance, I would not have begun my defense of Luther by sourcing the Table Talk. I also would have sourced the folks attempting to use Luther in support of homosexuality. Other than that, these entries are a nice topical treatment of Luther's words in regard to this issue.
Did Martin Luther repent before he died?
It is rumored that Luther asked for the last rites but was refused them, and that he said, “It is easier to live as a Protestant, but it is better to die as a Catholic." However, neither assertion has been substantiated by reliable sources.
The best evidence supports that Luther died with a prayer on his lips, but unfortunately not one of repentance. He may have even taken a shot at the Catholic Church at the end. In any event, in this year of the quincentennial of the Reformation, let us pray for the repose of Luther’s soul and the restoration of unity among all Christians in Christ’s one Catholic Church.
