    Bulletins at Obama's Church Carry Their Own Controversy

    (CNSNews.com) - Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) recently said his relationship with his long-time pastor and friend Rev. Jeremiah Wright "changed" after what Obama called the clergyman's "divisive and destructive" remarks at the National Press Club. Later, however, Obama stressed his loyalty to the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, where he has been a member for many years.

    Articles published in the Trinity United Church of Christ bulletin in 2007 carried controversial comments written by people other than Jeremiah Wright. Those comments included the claim that Israel worked with South Africa to build an "ethnic bomb" that would kill blacks and Arabs, that the Pentagon was training Latin Americans to be terrorists, and that the TV networks are run by right-wing racists.

    How do they keep their tax exempt status?
    And why would a christian continue to support this kind of thing going on there unless they also believed it.
    This church is only concerned about black people, not people in general, not needy people of any race, not the gospel, not Jesus. Black and africa. Thats it. So what does that say about someone who gives their support and follows the teachings.

    Churches cannot lose their tax exempt status.
