Lutheran Apologete & Too Nice to Romanism

Here are two things that produced a sardonic laugh.

"Sardonic" is an interesting word:
Sardonic \Sar*don"ic\, a. [F. sardonique, L. sardonius, Gr. ?,?, perhaps fr. ? to grin like a dog, or from a certain plant of Sardinia, Gr. ?, which was said to screw up the face of the eater.]
Forced; unnatural; insincere; hence, derisive, mocking, malignant, or bitterly sarcastic; -- applied only to a laugh, smile, or some facial semblance of gayety.
[1913 Webster]

I've been deemed "Lutheran apologete"

And, here is a post from a Lutheran apologete on Luther and prophecy – at least the Romanists he refutes make an argument rather than repeatedly insisting on Luther as a “prophet”:

And I'm too nice to Romanism:
Viisaus said: Were you too militant in your anti-Romanism for Swan's calmly professional taste (that is sometimes perhaps a bit too calm)?
