He had no idea his church was so hate-filled, once he discovered it, he had to move on. (SARCASM)

How token. Only TEN YEARS too late. Sorry Osama Obama -— the tokenism here does not change ten years of establish history of America and “whitey” hating.

I didn’t know you could “resign” from a church unless you were on staff.

I guess this means he can go back to the church of his youth, Islam.

I resigned from the vestry of a Episcopalian church. Priest was going to teach AIDs stuff to little kids. I said what are you going to teach them? He said that God was not punishing gays. I said how would you know.

This is a mistake on his part. It makes him look much worse. Before he could position it as it’s a black church thing the non-blacks couldn’t understand. Now it looks like he is an idiot who took 20 years to assess a situation and make a decision...after exposing his children to it for years.

If this guy wins in November, the end is near.

So is he a buffoon or just a simple moron for resigning AFTER the Klan has been exposed?

Because the CIA invented it to kill black people. Everyone knows that.

Oprah Winfrey had the sense to leave that church a few years ago, something the Ivy League educated Chicago lawyer running for President lacked.

Is the wife under there yet?

I'm thinking of the rumors of the Pubbies having DVDs of Ma Belle, Michelle, ranting from the pulpit.

If true, I'd love to know just how he's going to divorce himself from her.

No word on whether his wife has?

I'm sure she was instrumental in selecting this church in the first place, as a “proper” place to provide their children's religious education.

She must be pissed!!

This church sounds like the old rock and roll song -Hotel California, “you can check out anytime but you can never leave.”
Sounds like scary people to me.

‘Sup with Laz? What’d he do this time?

I don’t know if he’s gone for good or not. You can see the development of his ouster through this thread: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/2023686/posts

It all started with post #13.(The post was deleted but you can read it in my reply on post #44).

Maybe he sat in the back of the church for 20 years and didn’t realize that the pastor was a racist?
