Early Dutch Anabaptist leader Menno Simons wrote more than 1000 pages of theological writing. As Mennonites, we take our name from Menno Simons, but how many of us have actually read his writings? Perhaps some of us are more studied in heavy metal music. In order to test this theory, The Daily Bonnet has compiled a list of quotes from Menno Simons mixed in with metal lyrics. Apparently, the Calvinists had some difficulty telling John Calvin quotes from metal lyrics, but I’m sure Mennonites will do much better, right? Well, let’s see how you do!
