The Religious Affiliation of
U.S. Senator from South Dakota
John Thune: Official govt. bio lists religious affiliation as "Protestant." Sen. Thune attends McLean Bible Church in Virginia (Washington D.C. metro area), an independent Evangelical "non-denominational" megachurch with over 5,000 families in the congregation. The pastor is Lon Solomon, a Jewish-born former hippie. It is the same church that Kenneth W. Starr attends.
