Dear Senator Obama:
Our common denomination, the United Church of Christ, has a suddenly serious legal and financial problem with the Internal Revenue Service. You, personally, are the cause of this problem. Candidly? I think you owe it to those of us who are your fellow congregants to help repair the damage that you have done.
As you know, on June 23, 2007, you gave a speech to the United Church of Christ's General Synod during our church's 50th anniversary celebration in Hartford, Connecticut. The invitation was extended well before you became a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination. You are one of us, and while I disagree with you politically and could not be in Hartford, certainly I initially thought the idea of inviting you to speak was a good one. Contrary to the image our denominational leaders seek to promote, all members of our church are not liberals, and certainly I am not. Yet as a conservative I believe the exchange of ideas is what America is all about.

Great because you did it!
The Clinton's have been speaking in churches for several years - how did they get away with it?
The Clinton’s are always “in no ways tired” of screwing the voters with their hillbilly ways. I bet if asked Hillery “just can’t remember” campaigning in a black church only a few months ago. Obama should not do it either.
I can’t believe that the Bush Administtation is going after a chuch the way the Clinton administration is reported to have. Is this for real??
(1) We have a new AG. (2) It is not a black church.
I just read the speech from the link as well as some of the comments.
One of the comments alludes to the fact that the speech did not take place in the church or during a service but as part of a church related event.
I think that the same rules should apply to all and if this illegal the Bush Admin should pursue but I hope the Obammies don’t use the prosecution as another opportunity to scream victim.
It was a bit like the Catholic bishops inviting him , but no others to adddress them.
