Senator Barack Obama has cut his ties with th e Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago that he has attended since 1992 due to continuing divisive statements by those preaching in its pulpit. In a letter to church officials, Obama and his wife noted: ‘Our relations with Trinity have been strained by the divisive statements of Reverend Wright, which sharply conflict with our own own views. It is a decision Michelle and I discussed for quite some time. This is not a decision I come to lightly. It is a decision I come to with some sadness.” The senator obviously had come to the conclusion statements by the Reverend Wright would be regarded as “remarks(that) will be imputed to me.”
The obama decision is most probably one that had to be made given the divisive and angry comments of the Reverend Wright who has allowed his ego to be the most important thing in life. The individual who should feel sad about this entire episode is the Reverend Wright.
