    Thomas Moore burned 6 people to death for blasphemy and the Catholic Church made him a Saint.

    You would use Moore's actions to excuse this immolation?

    this guy?

    Thomas More - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    You do know that was during the Dark Ages and that the church doesn't do shit like that anymore?

    Or are you just that damn dumb?

    Two wrongs make it right.

    They did it 700 years ago, so it's ok to use it now.

    He's still a Saint, actually. What more endorsement of his actions by the present day Church do you need other than their consideration of him as a Saint?

    He is a Saint because he chose martyrdom over submitting his conscience to the king's whims.

    But the real point here of course is that people like you can't bring themselves to recognize the barbarous and extreme intolerance of Muslim fundamentalists, which finds no equal in any other major religion.

    How ironic, considering he himself made martyrs out of 6 protestants who refused to submit their conscience to the Pope's wishes. You might say he had it coming. Though it wasn't quite fair, considering Moore was beheaded - a relatively painless death compared to being burned alive - the fate of Moore's victims. The fact that the Church regards this man as a Saint today is tacit endorsement of his persecution of protestants.

    YOU don't recognize the barbarous and extreme intolerance of Muslim fundamentalists
