U.S. Vice President Joe Biden attended Democratic Sen. Tom Harkin’s annual steak fry in Iowa Sunday, and for some reason Biden reportedly had occasion to bring up a rather well-known Catholic saint.
Which wouldn't have been a big deal assuming Biden didn't talk about Thomas More in an odd way. But that's apparently exactly what he did.

According to witnesses, Biden referred to the revered spiritual figure as "Tommy More, as we Catholics" say.
As you might guess, some Catholics on Twitter have a different view:
Think he minds being on such familiar terms with the U.S. vice president?
Don't answer that!
