[QUOTE]In Response to Re: I thought Thomas Was Done Talking??? : Just my opinion, but that's a shockingly naive interpretation. If you think that poem, in that context, is "about peace", perhaps you are the one who needs to 'pick up a book'. I respect Thomas' opinions, and yours. I don't like careless comparisons to the genocide of 6 million people. I wish we weren't talking about this.

Fletch, you're one of the most insightful, respectful posters on here, but right now you need to be taken to the woodshed.
To date, you've had lots to say, and pretty much talked down to anyone that doesn't share your devastation, when learning of TT's politics. I find that mind-boggling.
Your above post suggests TT crossed a line that i feel goes far beyond anyones right to opinion, or free speech.
Since you're usually pretty level headed, I figured I should find out the contents of this highly treasonous rant myself. So...i searched it out.
Turns out your thoughts are as small minded, misguided, blown out of proportion and irresponsible as those others, who have shockingly discovered that TT is in fact, not made in their own image.
WDF does the "careless comparisons to the genocide of 6 million people" have to do with TT's facebook post?
For your info, that "poem" as you call it, is quoted from a theologian.....one that just happens to be an anti nazi, and the message is clear enough, a 9 year old should get it.
goes something like this.....if you feel strongly about something, you have a responsibility to speak up when it affects other people...not just when it affects you.
Where I come from, that's hardly cause for a public execution. Pretty sure that applies in your neck of the woods too.
If you disagree with TT and his support of the"Catholics"...fine. Don't be so two-faced to suggest you wished you were talking about something else, then throw in an irrelevant a-bomb in attempting to validate your position.
This crap is getting out of hand.
