Obama should resign his membership in that church

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
in response to reader comment: Obama's affiliation with Jeremiah A. Wright more troubling

Abraham Foxman sometimes overreacts. But this time he is right in saying that Obama should leave his church if he is unable to change his Minister's mind about Farrakhan

Would you vote for a Presidential candidate (not your candidate for village supervisor, mind you )who refuses to end his /her membership in a golf club that declines membership to Jews, Blacks, Hispanics, etc?

That Obama expressed "disagreement " with the "views" of Wright/Farrakhan is not enough. As a candidate for President, not village dog catcher, he must quit that church. Make a clean break. But he will not do it. Why should he? He is the media-made immaculate Messiah.
