Question by Eve95: Trinity United Church of Christ?
I understand that Obama resigned his membership from Trinity yesterday, which is his personal decision and I certainly don’t have a problem with that. What I don’t understand is why everybody is calling this man a racist as a result of his connection with the church. I grew up in that church (from the ages of 10-20) and one thing that I can tell you is that I always loved listening to Rev. Wright. He was one of those few preachers that actually had my attention during all his sermons (as a child, it can be very easy to zone out during the sermon part of service). I thought he was rather exciting, never boring. Never once in my time there did I ever think that Rev. Wright was a racist. That never ever crossed my mind. And guess what? I’m not a racist! (*gasp*) I treat others the way I would like to be treated and I go on about my life. I’m not sitting around hating anybody due to things that have happened in the past. I always saw Rev. Wright as passionate, never racist.

Good for you. Glad you enjoyed it. But if he truly “loves” his church, why would he abandon it for political gain? Don’t you think that shows an alarming lack of principles?
