Barack Obama's Church Statement

The following is the statement from the About Us page of the website of the The Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, Illinois. It is the church of Barack Obama.........

"We are a congregation which is Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian... Our roots in the Black religious experience and tradition are deep, lasting and permanent. We are an African people, and remain "true to our native land," the mother continent, the cradle of civilization. God has superintended our pilgrimage through the days of slavery, the days of segregation, and the long night of racism. It is God who gives us the strength and courage to continuously address injustice as a people, and as a congregation. We constantly affirm our trust in God through cultural expression of a Black worship service and ministries which address the Black Community."

Hmmmmmmm! Excuse me, but I would prefer the President of the United States attend a church where the members identify themselves as "American people."
