Not wanting to take the heat, Barack Obama is getting out of the kitchen, and leaving Trinity Church. As an avowed fan of Jeremiah Wright (even though he’s not the pastor there any more, I know), I’m disappointed. Wussy!
No word yet on whether Obama will throw the entire United Church of Christ (my own denomination, I should remind you) Under the Bus as well. An unruly lot we are indeed! Maybe he’ll give in to the rumors and convert to Islam. Or perhaps he’ll decide the whole religion thing is more trouble than it’s worth—not an unreasonable position, I have to admit—and come out as an atheist.
