Mr. Lord is giving his denomination’s leaders too much of a pass on the IRS flap regarding Barack Obama’s speech before the group. While it would have been nice if Obama had declined to speak at the event, the ultimate responsibility lies with the leaders who allowed him to speak in the first place! It is their responsibility to safeguard the church from this type of situation, not the speaker’s to save them from themselves. The church leadership knew the rules, or least should have, and they failed to do what was necessary to keep away from violating the law (as silly as it may be).p>But I must agree that Mr. Obama and his staff do bear some responsibility as well. This is his home denomination, and to do anything that threatens the security of the church he calls home for his own political ends should tell us all something abut Mr. Obama. What it tells me is that he is just another self serving politician, interested solely in his own political well being, all else be damned! br> — Eric Edwards
