Thomas More

Address by George Cardinal Pell at the unveiling of the Statue of St. Thomas More in the Speakers Garden of NSW Parliament.

I'm not 100% sure if this is the exact words that came out of his mouth as there were inital reports of Pell being a little harsh on the legislatures!

I have to mention this part however,
More was a man of his times and the title of saint does not imply life long perfection. He regarded heretics as small “l” liberals today regard racists, while going further so that during his time as chancellor six Protestants were executed. We thank God that we have moved past such excesses.

Maybe we should reconsider our treatment of heretics and small 'l' liberals... and hang them all!

Nope. Too many bodies to dispose of properly.
