God-O-Meter

thompson5.jpgGod-o-Meter’s new fellow Beliefnet blogger Reformed Chicks Blabbing has made a personal plea for GOM to raise Fred Thompson’s reading on the basis that he relies on sound Christian theology in envisioning government’s role in curing social ills. Here’s what Thompson said on Saturday in South Carolina, according to CBS News:

A woman asked him if he would “as a Christian, as a conservative” continue President Bush’s programs to combat global AIDS.
“Christ didn’t tell us to go to the government and pass a bill to get some of these social problems dealt with. He told us to do it,” Thompson said.
“The government has its role, but we need to keep firmly in mind the role of the government, and the role of us as individuals and as Christians on the other.”

God-o-Meter will grant Reformed Chicks (which really refers to one blogger, despite the name) and goose Thompson’s number. And with Thompson vying with Huckabee (not to mention Romney) for evangelical votes in this Saturday’s South Carolina primary, God-o-Meter suspects these aren’t Thompson’s only religion comments this week.
