Politics and Religion
In response to Father Michael Pfleger's odious rant at Trinity United Church of Christ, many had been saying Barack Obama needed to make a strong statement of repudiation. CNN is reporting that Obama today announced his resignation from his church of twenty years. That's a strong statement. Some are saying it's too little, too late, but I don't know what else Obama could have done, or what other response people could have wanted. Some are also saying, well Obama did what he did because of politics. Well, guess what- Obama's a politician. And he made the strongest possible personal statement. Onward.
