Obama Quits His Church After Months of Criticism -

Obama Quits His Church After Months of Criticism - "Senator Barack Obama has resigned his membership in Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ, which he attended for nearly two decades, following months of controversy about pastors and their political views.

Mr. Obama said he and his wife, Michelle, wrote a letter on Friday to the church’s pastor, the Rev. Otis Moss, explaining that their estrangement from Trinity took root in controversial remarks by the church’s former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., who once was Mr. Obama’s spiritual guide."

Anyone who has ever left a church, for whatever reason, knows what a difficult and emotional decision it can be. You are leaving behind not just a church and a pastor, but friends, community, history, and a host of other connections. Clearly this was not a choice he made lightly, but one he had to make.
