Judas, the Son
What’s in a name? For Judas Thomas, named after the infamous betrayer, a great many things. For centuries, Judas Iscariot has been the most despised figure in Western Civilization. For a boy born in 1970, his greatest obstacle is not his conception by a violent rape or his upbringing in a Catholic orphanage nor his mixed race. His greatest challenge is his name: Judas, after the famed betrayer.
