St. Thomas More doesn’t appear to have had anything in particular against Jews, but he pursued heretics with an enthusiasm that seemed a tad unseemly even at the time and delighted in their agonies at the stake. Nobody’s perfect.

Frankly, I never cared for Thomas More all that much. He always struck me as kind of a self-righteous prig.

That, plus lose your head over the pope's perogatives on divorce? I don't think so.

But then I'm a Lutheran so dissing the pope comes a bit naturally.

Course, I could be wrong about More. I'm no expert on the era or the subject, but that's how he always struck me.
