Thus E's comment "putting makeup on a pig" insinuates that nothing of biblical value and spiritual reality characterized the reformers nor existed in the reformation movement. All of their work could be characterized as "lipstick."

History overwhelming informs us that these Reformers changed the course of Western civilization, ending an entire millennium of what is called the "dark ages." Think about how little impact the "Recovery" has had, and perhaps saying that the LCM is merely "makeup on a moo cow" is too generous.
