Martin Thompson is a very talented opera singer. He performs in Europe and the US and is quite well known in the opera community. He also has a family back in Oregon.

His ex wife is battling MS disease and has no ability to work. She is on two canes and cannot afford her medication anymore because of state budget cuts. The real shame is the Martin Thompson earns a wonderful living as an international opera singer. He currently owes his wife and three children over $85,000 in back child and spousal support.

He travels often and gets paid in cash throughout Europe so attaching wages is impossible.

His kids are wonderful and talented. His ex wife is very ill and needs every penny. They will soon lose their home and nobody knows what will happen after that.

Some members of the community in West Linn are helping the family as best they can. The real hope is that Marty Thompson will pay what he owes this wonderful family he left.

He is married again and has a small child. We all wish him the best and respect his talents. We also are ashamed of him and feel angry that he has abandoned his former wife and children financially.

West Linn, Oregon

Possible ex roommate of Martin Thompson

AUTHOR: Dan - (United States of America)

I stumbled across this ripoff report and a mug photo when I was looking for my old college roommate, Marty Thompson.  I'm not sure if this is the same Marty I knew or not.

But, when I noticed this man in trouble for non-support, I had to say something.  And it won't be all that typical of what the media seems to allow or support because it goes against the grain of the perspective that some people want to limit people to seeing.

There are dead-beat dads and beat-dead dads.  There are unfaithful dads who are too unmanly and hypocritical and cowardly to honor their wedding vows, and they would abandon their families including their own children for a roll in the hay with another woman, and God's curse remains upon them every day and night.  And there are faithful men who have been stripped of their family by unfaithful women playing the w***e on their marriages and demanding the right to keep the children, the house, and invite the other man to replace the children's father in the wedding bed.  And there are governments cursed enough of God to support that and to rob the faithful men and their children of their right to live together in the shared family home enjoying the shared family assets in peace and love without robbery or abuse.  May God's curse remain continually unrelenting and intense upon the government and all who support the government who would do this to the faithful, who would abuse the faithful and innocent and rob the beleaguered.  May God's wrath be unrelenting and condemning of those who support such injustice and knowingly let it continue without raising a serious objection to it.

Today, some governments impose child support against the faithful who have been unjustly robbed of children.  May God's wrath be upon all who support this and their children and their families if they will not oppose these people.  May our own government fold and crumble and be replaced if our government will not repent of this sin, and may our economy become more and more miserable until we get the message that you cannot bully and abuse the faithful or prostitute justice without becoming the object of God's wrath because of God's love.  If that sounds like a contradiction, then perhaps it is time for you to get an understanding of what it means to love.  Love is not about getting what you want for yourself at all costs to others. It's not about acting out whatever sexually perverse desires you may have.  It is not about feeling woozy or "romantic".  It is about sacrificing without feeling you're sacrificing.  It is about giving without feeling like you're giving.  If you're boasting about your patience, you're already lying.  If you call out for people to repay your love because they owe you for all the love you have shown them, then you probably have not shown them any love at all.  Love is a privilege.  It is a commitment of the heart that causes good behaviour to follow.  It is about doing and saying what will bring the greatest good.  It's about telling the truth in the most loving way possible.  It's not about pandering in cowardice.  IT is not about winning people over for personal pleasure or comfort.  It is about being willing to give it up and suffer pain for the greater good of others.

Love showed when Jesus died on the cross for those unfaithful to Him.  Love doesn't show when homosexuals suck on each other or act weird.  Love doesn't show when people commit adultery.  Love does not show when children are molested.  Love isn't a force that breaks up a family or a marriage.  Love holds a marriage together.  Love does not lead people to lie or be cowards.  It causes people to stand against wrong and for right even if it causes pain and loss of one's life in the pursuit of a greater good for all.  And if this really ticks you off, get over it.  Weigh it out.  Make a decision whether you will get it or forget it and live in a fantasy and a lie of convenience lest it makes you face something you don't want to face.  And spare me the return challenge if it is intended to get me to change my mind and accept falsehood because none of this is about me.  It was true before I was born and it will be true after I'm dead and gone, and it would be true if I never existed or if I caved in and stopped saying these things.  If you are able to get me to be silent,  God would still hold you accountable for whatever it is that is true.  You don't have to convince or impress me or anyone else. But, if there is a God who is totally honest, and I believe there is, you'll be responsible to Him whether you agree or not, just as I will be responsible to Him for what I say here and for how I live.

Right now, we as a nation are hurting the faithful and the innocent in horrible ways under the guise of child support.  Then when child support is warranted, we do far, far too little.  The guilty get away and the faithful are ground into the ground so the unfaithful can live high on the hog and squander the earnings of the faithful enslaving them.  Again, just reason for God's full wrath to come unrelenting.  And in case you and I haven't noticed, we've been experiencing a little of it for some time now.  And some people will still remain stubbornly too stupid to catch on.  And the rest of us will watch on and observe the stupidity behind this.

Wouldn't it be amazing if this nation and it's people actually got a clue?

Some recent interaction with Martin Thompson shows promise. He may agree to help his children now... time will tell. Everyone pray he comes around.
