"We have much work to do as a community, and to claim the President of the United States must hold your theological position is absurd. He is President of the United States of America not the President of the Baptist convention or Bishop of the Sanctified or Holiness Church. He is called to protect the rights of Jew and Gentile, male and female, young and old, Gay and straight, black and white, Atheist and Agnostic."

-- Rev. Dr. Otis Moss, III, Pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, Illinois in a letter sent to a fellow clergyman in response to the call to pull support for President Obama due to his stance on marriage equality.
