Looks like Barack Obama won’t be in the pews at Trinity Church of Christ this Easter. He’s headed for some fun in the sun. Via ABC News:
Obama’s allies are hoping the focus will stay off of Wright this Easter Sunday when the Democratic frontrunner skips services at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago and heads on vacation. Per ABC News’ Sunlen Miller, sources familiar with Obama’s plans say the Illinois Democrat is expected to go on a tropical vacation with the most likely bet appearing to be St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Obama, whose campaign will not confirm his plans, is expected to leave Chicago on Sunday morning and will return either on Tuesday night or Wednesday morning.
Wonder if there are any black liberation theologians holding services on the islands this weekend?
Maybe he can make a little room on his plane for those San Francisco America-haters. They need one-way tickets.
On a related note, Ace e-mails a spot-on mash-up of Obama set to Depeche Mode’s “Personal Jesus”–which ends with the very fitting admonition attributed to G.K. Chesterton:
“When men stop believing in God they don’t believe in nothing; they believe in anything.”
