PRESS RELEASE from Obama for America

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Dec. 4, 2007

Renowned Faith Leaders Come Together to Support Obama

Unprecedented group of nation’s top Black religious leaders unveiled

CHARLESTON, S.C. –U.S. Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign today unveiled its African American Religious Leadership Committee at both the national and statewide levels. Together, they represent two groups of key national and South Carolina religious leaders who are supporting Obama’s bid for the Democratic nomination.

These groups are truly without equal and reflect the belief among clergy that Obama has dedicated his public life to living the values of his faith outside of his house of worship. The national leadership committee is made up of presidents of two of the largest national Baptist conventions; the most senior Bishop of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, some of the most well-known African American women religious leaders and living legends of the Civil Rights movement, Rev. Dr. Joseph E. Lowery and Dr. C.T. Vivian; and many others.

Barack Obama Campaign African American Religious Leadership Steering Committee

Here is a list of Barack Obama’s African American Religious Leadership steering committee. I see some good people on this list.

NATIONAL

Rev. Dr. Claude R. Alexander, Jr.
Senior Pastor
University Park Baptist Church
Charlotte, NC

Snip---list of people....I just showed the top and bottom

Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr.*
Senior Pastor
Trinity United Church of Christ
Chicago, IL
Senator Barack Obama’s Pastor

So I guess if the campaign has said it is introducing it's African American Religious Leadership steering committee then it is a part of the campaign, and Wright left it which means he left the campaign.

Here's another link just in case people think I'm makin shit up.

Controversial minister leaves Obama campaign
Former pastor of Chicago church again creates headache for Democrat

Sen. Barack Obama’s presidential campaign announced Friday that his former pastor had left the campaign’s spiritual advisory committee after the pastor’s inflammatory sermons ignited fierce debate in news accounts and political blogs.

The campaign said the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr., who Obama has said brought him to Christianity, was “no longer serving” on Obama’s African American Religious Leadership Committee, a loose group of supporters associated with the campaign, NBC’s Mark Murray reported.
