Apparently, I'm in the minority viewpoint on this one as well.
I think late is worse than never.
Has the Church changed so much since he started the campaign? Doubtful.
So why should Barack Obama (D-IL) quit it? If he was proud to be a member before, then he should be now, right?
Answer? Political necessity. Perhaps because he's worried about a future bombshell, or to limit the damage from the bombs so far.
But if he's leaving out of political necessity doesn't that turn everything he's said about being a "different kind of politician" into a lie? And isn't that what his whole campaign is based upon?
Frankly, I'd have more respect for him if he'd stayed with the Church.
But it's doubtful that his campaign is worried about me. They're already aware that they're probably not getting my vote.
