I am not a drunkard!
Look at my picture to the left! Look closely! I am not holding a bottle! Well, okay, an ink bottle, but it's not a bottle of alcohol! I am being inspired by God Himself and His angels! There's a reason I'm the Angelic Doctor! I can assure you that I am not 'hitting the bottle', whatever that means, in an attempt to have something called a 'hallucinatory experience' in which I 'see' angels and be inspired.
Look at my Summa! How, pray tell, is that the result of a drunken mind?!
I don't deserve sainthood for my Summa Theologica; I deserve sainthood for dealing with ignorant illiterati like Christian Cripple and the so-called 'deaf mute' Greg.
