Obama: Good-bye to the Trinity Church

At the very moment Democrats are still wrestling with delegate selection in Michigan and Florida, Barack Obama has finally done what he should have done years ago – resign from the Trinity Church. How many years ago? Well, Oprah did eight, but I think she was late. Black Liberation Theology is reactionary and racist. Anyone who wants to see progress between the races should stay as far away from it as possible. It was fake at the beginning and it is fake now. That Obama ever had anything to do with it is repellent. He was not of the generation of Stokeley Carmichael and H. Rap Brown. He should have known better. Now he is riding the whirlwind.

UPDATE: From his presser, Obama calls the statements of current Trinity pastor Moss “innocuous.” I guess that depends on what your definition of innocuous is.
