      Obama quits Chicago church after long controversy

      13 minutes ago

      ABARDEEN, S.D. - Barack Obama is resigning a 20 year
      membership in the Trinity United Church of Christ in
      the aftermath of inflammatory remarks by former pastor
      the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

      Obama campaign communications director Robert Gibbs
      said Obama had submitted a letter of resignation to
      the church and would discuss his decision in a session
      with reporters later Saturday.

      Comments by Wright have posed an unwanted problem for
      Obama, front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination.
