Default Refreeze a thawed Turkey???

To make a long story short, I've ended up with two thawed turkeys, and no time to cook the second bird. It was slow thawed in the refrigerator. Is it OK to put it back in the freezer?

I have always been told it is a bad idea. I have no back up to this info though. I can't see how it would be bad if it never came to room temp.

Refreezing
Once food is thawed in the refrigerator, it is safe to refreeze it without cooking, although there may be a loss of quality due to the moisture lost through defrosting. After cooking raw foods which were previously frozen, it is safe to freeze the cooked foods. If previously cooked foods are thawed in the refrigerator, you may refreeze the unused portion.

If you purchase previously frozen meat, poultry or fish at a retail store, you can refreeze if it has been handled properly.
