I am glad to see you endorse Duncan
Hunter (profile). Your information on
Fred Thompson though is
incorrect. Senator Fred Thompson is a member of the Church of Christ, not the United
Church of Christ. One strictly follows only what is written in the
Bible apart from human creeds while
the other, the United Church of Christ is a denomination dictated by the creeds
of men. My former roommate in college now preaches for the church where Senator
Fred Thompson's mother worships in Tennessee and which he attends when he visits
her. They do not endorse homosexuals as preachers or
pastors, and they are against abortion and gay marriage. I like your site but
you have grossly mis-represented Senator Fred Thompson. Thank you.
Thank you for your email. Senator Thompson was raised in the Church of Christ and still attends it
when visiting his mother, but chose to be married at the First Congregational United
Church of Christ (UCC) in Naperville, Illinois, and until very recently his
positions on social issues were closer to those of the UCC than the Church of
Christ. On November 13, 2007, we sent multiple emails to Senator Thompson's
campaign requesting comments if any of the information on
Senator Thompson resume,
including his UCC affiliation were incorrect. To date, we have not heard back.
Senator Thompson responds and indicates that he is a member of the Church of
Christ, we will be pleased to amend his profile accordingly.
