Michelle Obama was in Nashville, TN at the African Methodist Episcopal Church Conference. She spoke of Obama in near religious terms and compared him to figures from the bible.
Mrs. Obama’s comments may have something to do with the fact that the first family does not attend church on a regular basis. In author Ed Klein’s new book, The Amateur, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, whose church the Obama’s attended when they lived in Chicago, said the first family did not seem interested in attending church on a regular basis.
"These are not church people," Wright said of Barack and Michelle Obama. "As far as Michelle was concerned, that she was not brought up in the church, and as far as the couple themselves, the church is not very important to them."
