Obama Quits Trinity Church

In response to the latest allegations of racism regarding comments by Reverend Michael Pfleger at Reverend Wright's Trinity United Church in Chicago, Barack Obama and his wife Michelle have finally resigned from the church. At a press conference Saturday to explain his resignation he called statements by Reverend Moss, current leader of the church, "innocuous." Obama further attacked the media for intruding in lives of church goers.
