He Scores... Tim Thomas shoots for Religious Freedom


So reports the Politico:
Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas may be taking a liking to this whole politics thing.
The Stanley Cup MVP, who snubbed President Obama last month and said it had "nothing to do with politics or party," took to his Facebook page today to weigh in on the president's decision to require employers, including religiously affiliated ones, to purchase insurance that covers birth control.
"I stand with Catholics in the fight for Religious Freedom," he wrote. Thomas then went on to quote the famous poem, "First they came..." about the failure to speak up during the rise of Nazi Germany.
Thomas's decision not to visit the White House with the rest of his team made big headlines. At the time, he said he chose not to go because he believes "the Federal government has grown out of control, threatening the Rights, Liberty, and Property of the People...This was not about politics or party, as in my opinion both parties are responsible for the situation we are in as a country.
