In his latest political-only move…Barack Obama has thrown Trinity United Church under the bus. The Senator Chose Political Greed over religious beliefs:
Two questions, one, why now? It takes the wind out of Clinton’s sails of getting half of Florida and Michigan. The other question is WHY DID IT TAKE 20 FREEKING YEARS?

Barack Obama and his wife Michelle have resigned their membership at the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, FOX News has confirmed, after controversies stemming from the congregation created a persistent distraction for Obama’s campaign. The criticism started with the sermons of his former pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr., but Obama’s pastor problems were compounded this week by the Rev. Michael Pfleger, whose videotaped guest sermon at the church Sunday showed him taunting Hillary Clinton and saying she felt she was “entitled” to the presidency because she’s white. Obama said he was deeply disappointed by the remarks and Pfleger apologized, but Clinton’s campaign still demanded Obama specifically reject the latest remarks. By resigning his membership, Obama is taking the most definitive stand to date against the church. He already has roundly condemned Wright. Videos of Wright’s sermons, in which he claimed the U.S. government created HIV to exterminate black people and said “God damn America,” threatened to derail Obama’s campaign when they first surfaced in March.
