CNN commentator Roland Martin is reporting that Obama has resigned his membership in his church, Trinity Baptist. Will post more once something posts online.UPDATE #1: Still nothing on the web, though the story has been picked up by most of the other blogs out there. Looks legitimate, though. Also- interesting timing, as the talking heads are busy discussing the restart of the DNC Rules meeting, which just got going a few minutes ago. Smart?UPDATE #2: Reputable Chicago blogger Monroe Anderson is reporting that Obama sent a letter to Trinity yesterday. He's critical of Obama's decision, but understands it. I feel the same- I wish it wasn't necessary, but politically it seems like the only answer.UPDATE #3: CNN saying they have confirmed this. Still no web link, but running on the ticker.UPDATE #4: CNN confirms through Obama's campaign and has posted an article online. Obama will hold a news conference after his appearance in South Dakota.
