|Owain Glyndwr: an English Soldier|
History is funny isn't it? If we judged everyone on their pasts, well here's a few:
St Augustine would be an arrogant lawyer who freed a murderer.
St Francis would be a materialist party animal (probably a misogynist to boot).
Owain Glyndwr would be an English soldier defending the crown and killing for his king.
Winston Churchill would be a disgrace who ordered troops to fire on strikers and the mastermind of a battle that killed many and ended in total failure.
And of course there's Mary Magdalene who - although never called an ex-prostitute in the Gospels - was said to have had a 'colourful' past.
I dare say there's many more...
