Obama Disses Trinity United Church
Posted by Ryan on May 31, 2008
OK, so there’s this bus that Obama has. He occasionally throws his Pastor, old friends, and grandmother under it. This time, he’s announced that he’s altogether leaving the Trinity United Church after sitting in the pews for 20 years… except for the time he got married there and had his kids baptized there as well! It’s getting in the way of his political career so it has to go.
I think back to just March 18 of this year when Obama said in a well-received speech on religion:
“I can no more disown [Reverend Wright] than I can disown the black community.”
March was, like, ancient history to a Democrat, however.
If his religious foundations, principles, and longtime friends can be tossed away so quickly, what will he do as President if things get uncomfortable there? This further makes Obama look like a typical heartlessly shrewd politician willing to toss people away when things get uncomfortable, not a man who’s trying to be above the fray.
