What Country Does Obama Have Allegiance To?

Assuming Obama is a member in good standing in his church, I have to believe he accepts the basic tenets of his church. He may disagree with the inflammatory rhetoric of the pastor but if he is committed to remain "true to our native land" which is Africa, he does not hold allegiance to the U. S. of A. This allegience, to another nation, is what I believe our founding fathers hoped to avoid by stating that any person seeking the presidency should be native born and have an overwhelming allegiance to this nation.

We are a congregation which is Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian... Our roots in the Black religious experience and tradition are deep, lasting and permanent. We are an African people, and remain "true to our native land," the mother continent, the cradle of civilization. God has superintended our pilgrimage through the days of slavery, the days of segregation, and the long night of racism. It is God who gives us the strength and courage to continuously address injustice as a people, and as a congregation. We constantly affirm our trust in God through cultural expression of a Black worship service and ministries which address the Black Community.
The Pastor as well as the membership of Trinity United Church of Christ is committed to a 10-point Vision:

A congregation committed to ADORATION.
A congregation preaching SALVATION.
A congregation actively seeking RECONCILIATION.
A congregation with a non-negotiable COMMITMENT TO AFRICA.
A congregation committed to BIBLICAL EDUCATION.
A congregation committed to CULTURAL EDUCATION.
A congregation committed to LIBERATION.
A congregation committed to RESTORATION.
A congregation working towards ECONOMIC PARITY.
