UCC and Obama News

By now you've heard that Sen. Obama has decided to leave Trinity United Church of Christ, where he has maintained his family's membership for 20+ years. He was married there, his children were baptized there, but due to the political blowback from clips of Rev. Jeremiah Wright and a guest speaker that reflected views that are not his own, he feels compelled to leave. It's very sad, since this basically means that it's more politically expedient to be unattached to a body of worship.

What's not being reported is the UCC's response, which can be found here. It's nothing earth shattering, or surprising, but I figured I'd link to it, nonetheless.
