Corey_Gamer04 I'm an atheist, and an anti-theist as well, but religion is fascinating to me, it's amazing how much power people held with it, and how many wars were fought over it. Whatever you think about religion, I don't think you can call it boring.

Whatever guys, the Protestant version of it is Henry do not like incestual relation or the idea of penis fit tightly right in the vagina bc of related closer by biology but he like atrocity sex with random strange woman of affection/and by choosing.  Plus, you know how Jewish is? and how monarchy is?  oh ja, not everybody is one.  Sad, the lack of empathy.
In the film he retired from the position chancellor which made me wonder why the hell Henry would care what he thought. Unless it was a case of obsession and everybody had to be onboard with Henry.

Sadly, he and countless others were confused about right and wrong and did much harm. I will always consider such acts as an awful waste; never a virtue.

I don't claim that More got what he deserved, as I'm not the sovereign Judge of such a thing, but as the man who had others executed, others who had done nothing wrong (including William Tyndale), I'm reminded of the apostle Paul's words: "whatever a man sows, that he will also reap." I'm not surprised that the Catholic church would call him a saint and martyr, but he was nor martyr for Christ - he was a martyr for the pope, for a man, for the Catholic church. Truly an unjustly praised man.

People like this should be remembered. Anyone who is willing to die for what they believe in (Without causing harm to others i.e terrorists) should be admired

Lt. Commander Olly Jackson Who the F*** liked this comment? Thomas more was a mini hitler that hated non catholics and indulged in "justice" of getting you burned to the ground for not favoring catholicism.

You young people should be a little more serious about this man.  We stand on the shoulders of giants and he was a giant.  I am working on the intellectual connection between St. Thomas More and the American Revolution.  Although they might not have been Roman Catholics, John Locke, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and Benjamin Franklin are his disciples.  The King has no right to break the law.  If he executed heretics as Lord Chancellor, Moses was also a murderer.  If there is a Heaven, can you imagine the discussions between Sir Thomas More and Rev. Martin Luther King?

You Puncho Villa need to get your head out of your ass. This man is my 15x great grandfather. Until you know all the facts keep your dam mouth shut. I have known all about him my whole life. and as far as Thomas jefferson and John adams go they were friends with my 10x great grndfather. He invented the first cooler. Oh and his name was Thomas Moore jr. you did not live in that time for you to make asumptions like that.
Puncho Villa (4 months ago)
Kurt Thornbladh You are VERY mistaken. Thomas More BLOOD was no damn saint and not one American revolutionary was his "disciple." If you weren't catholic in England in his time, and especially if you translated or read the bible, you'd be torn out of your home, interrogated, unjustly imprisoned, and cruelly killed. E.g. burned ALIVE to the ground. All thanks and praise to the roman catholic church's "$aint of politics" thomas more. A glorified "gentleman" saying oh how "wonderful" the catholic faith is and that it was best thing ever in the world. Get your heads out of your asses.
