just because you go with your team to be honored at the White House doesn't mean you are indorsing the occupant
and HT location says your from by god Nova Scotia. what the HELL you CARE about American politics. just enjoy your Canadian healthcare, sport
Just read an article on it, and here's how I feel.
Good for him. He simply stood up for what his beliefs were. He didn't try to push his beliefs onto his team, but he stood firm and declined the invitation.
Props to Chiarelli & Neely for asking Thomas to come with the team, but allowing him his freedom of choice when he declined.
This man stood up for a belief that he has. He was negative toward nobody, and nobody was harmed. He embarrased nobody. We need more people like Thomas in the world today who aren't willing to go along with the status quo.
Whether or not you agree with his political lean, you should admire a positive citizen (who's in the limelight), who chooses to respectfully stand firm.
