Don’t let the title fool you. This essay is very informative about the Lutheran position at the Diet of Augsburg. The crooked sticks are those in error. Many from every side wanted the Lutherans to make some concessions. Luther, his peers, and the princes did not concede in the face of such adversity. Nothing would make them give up the truths of God’s Word.
