Bullinger had some harsh words to say about the Anabaptists. The following is taken from sermon V.8 of The Decades:

“… since Anabaptism is nothing else but a confederacy, conspiracy, and a certain linking together by one mark into a new and schismatical church, and into a new and strange kind of doctrine, and as contrary as can be to the doctrine of Christ and his apostles; truly it is no marvel, that the obstinate anabpatists are kept under and punished by common law. For otherwise these things are damnable, and not to be dissembled or suffered or a christian magistrate.”

(The Decades – Parker ed. p 395)
