Barack Obama "Resigns" From His Church

Resigns? Did he offer a letter of resignation, or did he just not show up for church this week?
(CNN) -- Sen. Barack Obama said Saturday that he has resigned from the church where controversial sermons by his former pastor and other ministers created political headaches for his campaign.
Wow, and after only twenty years of listening to racist, anti-Semitic pastors and ministers? Now that's forward thinking!
"We don't want to have to answer for everything that's stated in the church," the Democratic front-runner said. "We also don't want the church subjected to the scrutiny that a presidential campaign legitimately undergoes."
So, he is resigning to protect the church and for political expediency. Wow, it's the best of both worlds!
Obama said he was resigning "with some sadness."
Of course he is resigning with "some sadness." It's only "some," because he agrees with a lot of what Trinity United Church of Christ stands for. Otherwise, he would have left the church a long time ago.
Amazingly, Hillary Clinton is looking more and more like the Democrats' better, stronger candidate.
