  •  A Man for All Seasoning (0+ / 0-)

    Pete King is old enough to know better, likely having had the chance to see A Man for All Seasons.  As Sir Thomas More questions his associate  Richard Rich on why he has turned state's evidence against Sir Thomas More, we learn:

    Sir Thomas More:  "Why Richard, it profits a man nothing to give his soul for the whole world... but for Wales?"
    Since the first half of the last century, it's been Saint Thomas More for Catholics, which Pete King should know.  And, any good Catholic would know just how Saint Thomas More qualified for canonization.  He didn't sell his soul for anything, particularly nothing so insubstantial as a whispered promise.  Pete King is trussed and dressed for the roaster for sure.
