Excommunication of Lord Gilbert

I hesitated somewhat before posting this video clip. It shows the excommunication of Lord Gilbert by St Thomas Becket, played by Richard Burton. After reading Bishop Egan's Pastoral Letter on Humanae Vitae I felt rather emboldened to do so. We Catholics should not seek conflict with the state, but at the same time we must always be prepared to defend the faith. After all, have we not all been confirmed?
