Thomas Merton

Thomas Merton, the Trappist monk targeted by the FBI after September 11 for possible terrorist activity.

Merton is dead, and the Thomas Merton Center is affiliated with Bellarmine University here in Louisville. He loved the poor and the infirm; which in modern America is sufficient to make a person a potential terrorist - which I suppose is how the high priests saw Jesus once upon a time.
