Courtesy of World Net Daily, we learn that Fred Thompson is an immoral, irreligious charlatan:
Doubts continue to swirl over Fred Thompson’s faith even among members of his own church.
First, Focus on the Family founder James Dobson was reported to have said the Republican presidential hopeful is not a real Christian. Thompson shot back that he’s not only a Christian, but a member of the fundamentalist Churches of Christ.
Now a political science professor at a Church of Christ-affiliated college charges Thompson is a “lapsed member.” And he has issued a challenge on the Internet to anyone who can come up with evidence that Thompson, now an actor, is active in the Church of Christ.
Is the Hollywood star-turned-politician a true believer?
Thompson’s chances at capturing the GOP primary may rest on the answer, thanks to the growing electoral clout of Christian conservatives.
Professor Mark Elrod of Harding University said he doubts Thompson is “filling out an attendance card at a Church of Christ on Sundays.”
Pretty bad, huh? Well, it gets worse:
While Dobson has expressed a willingness to take the Thompson claim at face value, Elrod’s challenge indicates the question has not been answered satisfactorily within his denomination.
Thompson and his first wife, Sara Lindsey, divorced in 1985. The Church of Christ frowns on divorce, and believes only “fornication,” or sexual infidelity, can be grounds for divorce and remarriage.
In 2002, Thompson and second wife, Jeri Kehn, were married in the liberal United Church of Christ, not the ultra-conservative Churches of Christ to which Thompson claims to belong.
So, now the truth finally trickles out: Thompson is a lapsed Christian who divorced his first wife, then married a temptress in a liberal church because his own religious organization wouldn’t countenance such sinful behavior.
And this is the man who thinks he should be America’s President. The very thought that one of these immoral libertines -Giuliani, Thompson- should lead this nation fills me with rage. If the Republican Party nominated such a man, Republicans would do well to vote Democrat in 2008. They might as well, since the RINO adulterers are functionally identical to Hillary Clinton anyway.
