The Eastern Churches and St. Thomas Aquinas

Why are you playing innocent now? Even after you knew that St. Thomas Aquinas had said it, you just pressed on. And it's not just about that thread, it's an ongoing pattern. Don't pretend as if you suddenly had always respected St. Thomas or St. Augustine when it's clear you don't.

And then your vitriol reaches an all time high when you accused fellow Catholics of idolatry:

Get a hold of yourself.
