Churchmanship

Mitt Romney's Mormon faith was a leading news story for a while.

Mike Huckabee's Evangelical Baptist faith still is a news story, although less so now that he has no chance of winning.

Barrack Obama's non-membership in the Islamic religion will keep popping up.

But the church Barrack Obama actually does belong to doesn't get much of a look in. Melanie Phillips described its Black Supremacist views in The Spectator last January. You can find it here. Tim Russert brought up the issue again the other night, via the "Farrakhan" question which never got answered. Melanie Phillips reprises her question today and National Review expands on it.

As Miss Phillips put it, "(i)f you belong to a church, it is a reasonable assumption that -- guess what! -- you do not find its values objectionable and most probably you actively support them."
