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.

Video: Father Michael Pfleger at Trinity Church

Below is a link to the video showing Father Michael Pfleger this past weekend at Trinity Church while Obama was in Puerto Rico.

 

I am sure that it is going to be difficult, but this is going to make it easier for Obama to distance himself from Trinity going forward.

 

I am beginning to get tired of ALL these “Fathers”, “Pastors” and “Ministers” in this campaign.  It seems to me that they are all looking for ‘book deals’.  I want to hear what the candidates have to say.  Hillary crying was in February.  It’s now May – almost June.  Let’s move forward people.  Enough of this foolishness.  This doesn’t help me to put $4.17 per gallon gas in my car!

 

These are not Obama’s word’s these are the words of a “Father” he knows.  It shouldn’t matter that Obama has known him for over 10 years.  I have known people all my life that I love but who would make me look like satan himself based on their lifestyles.  I may love them but I don’t believe what they believe. I should be judged based on the way I live my life not the way people I know choose to live theirs.

 

I’ve worked for people and therefore received money from people whose philosophies and behavior I do not believe in at all – 0%.  This is the world we live in.  No matter how we try, we cannot protect ourselves from people we associate with who act or think differently than we do.  Otherwise we would live in a bubble and our social education would be incomplete and inadequate.
