Fr. Pfleger Removed From St. Sabina Church!

Evidently, Cardinal George did not agree that America is the greatest sin against God.

Finally, Chicago Cardinal Francis George removes Barack Obama’s counsellor from his duties at St. Sabina Catholic Church.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported:

The firebrand pastor of St. Sabina parish was removed from his duties there Tuesday, according to a statement released by the Archdiocese of Chicago.

In the statement, Cardinal Francis George says he asked the Rev. Michael Pfleger, 59, to “take leave for a couple of weeks from his pastoral duties.” The statement said Pfleger “does not believe this to be the right step at this time.” “While respecting his disagreement, I have nevertheless asked him to use this opportunity to reflect on his recent statements and actions in the light of the Church’s regulations for all Catholic priests,” George said.

The recent statements in question were video clips broadcast on You Tube where Pfleger mocked Hillary Clinton for crying on the campaign trail. He suggested her tears were due to “white entitlement” leading Clinton to believe the Democratic nomination should go to her, not Barack Obama.

Pfleger has been a priest for 33 years, serving nearly all that time at St. Sabina’s in the Auburn-Gresham neighborhood.
