Obama Family Resigns From Trinity United Church

  As I mentioned in our May 30 post that included the video of Father Michael Pfleger’s rants against Hillary Clinton, the Father’s antics in conjunction with all the controversy that surrounded Rev. Wright would make it easier, when the time came, for the Obamas to leave Trinity United Church.  I didn’t know that day would come this soon.

I agree with the Obamas’ decision.  Trinity United Church has been way out of control.  It would be nice for any church to be able to say, “The President and his family attend our Church when they’re in Chicago.”  But no, the idiots at Trinity United Church can only say, “The President use to attend our Church until we made complete asses of ourselves and he left.” Nincompoops!

Today, Saturday, May 31, Barack Obama and his family resigned his 20 year membership in the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago.

From what I heard, the Obamas have been contemplating leaving the Church for weeks, but Father Pfleger was the straw that broke the camel’s back so they decided earlier this week to have their letter of resignation delivered today.

Trinity United Church issued a statement saying that they love the Obamas and will continue to pray for them as they get closer and closer to the White House.  The letter also said that they think that Senator Obama’s personal convictions, morals and values would make him an excellent President.





  1. Trinity United Church has been way out of control for 20 years so why not before now?

  2. Because, as Rev Wright himself stated, Barack Obama himself was not a frequent attendee of the Church. He attended over 20 years like many men in families do — not so often. His daughters were the primary attendees of the Church — they went to Sunday school there. Michelle went more frequently than Barack and both were members of and contributed financially to various outreach ministries of the Church.

    Peace friend.
