Let’s just call it an inconvenient church.
Timing is everything, baby. Besides, let’s face it, he doesn’t need them anymore.
He joined. Solidified his place in Illinois politics. Then shed it today like
skin off a snake.
Obama quits his church following Father Michael Pfleger’s sermon ridiculing
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) from the Trinity pulpit last Sunday,
reigniting stories about Obama’s associations with the inflammatory Trinity
pastor Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who stepped down from his role as senior pastor
to hand over the top job to the Rev. Otis Moss III. Obama’s move comes as
Moss praised for his "message" after Pfleger a scorched Clinton.
This is really a remarkable moment.
Obviously, as Senator Obama gets closer to the nomination, he’s shoring up
his foundation, which doesn’t include anything associated with Trinity Church.
Jesus doesn’t live under a single steeple. …or something like that.
