I don't consider that the age of the writing is the criteria for deciding whether something is uncivil. There are currently members of denominations established by Calvin and Luther, just as there are those who believe in the Bible or the Torah or the Koran. Dr. Bob has applied the guidelines to party leaders of current political parties, because he did not wish those who support those leaders to feel accused or put down. I consider this analogous.
