Why on earth is the Archdiocese of Chicago giving Father Michael Pfleger a lifetime achievement award?
He is a disastrously disobedient priest who has been a thorn in Cardinal Georges side (and an embarrassment for the Church) for years.
An AmP reader refreshes our memory:
Fr. Pfleger is the same priest who was (temporarily) suspended for joining with a crowd threatening to snuff out a gun shop owner. Hes a pal of race-baiter Rev. Wright (of Obama fame). He gave that (in)famous anti-Hillary tirade during the 08 primaries.
Michelle Malkin includes more links to Pflegers outrageous activities. I dont share her anti-bishop/Church sentiments, but I do share her disgust with Pflegers antics which demean his priestly ministry and believe we should take action.
I chronicled Pflegers most visible dust-up which occurred in June of 2008, and also did research at the time into Pflegers long habit of rebellion. My link and Malkins should be more than enough to see why Pflegers doesnt deserve any honors, let alone honors from a Catholic archdiocese.
I observed back in 2008 about Pfleger: If you want an example of the damage caused when problem priests are allowed to persist, youve got a classic case right here
Now it has only gotten worse.
Please call the Archdiocese of Chicago at 312-534-8200 and demand that Father Pflegers award be withdrawn. (His name is pronounced FLEGER, I believe the P is silent).
The award will be bestowed tomorrow at 7PM so we need to move fast!
UPDATE: for those who prefer sending emails, here are the appropriate ones for the Office of Racial Justice in the Archdiocese of Chicago which is presenting the award (thanks, AmP reader Joe):
Sorry, but are they out of their minds???
DISGUSTING!! I belong to the Cathedral and don’t know what action to take....another letter to Cardinal George, I guess. Like he really cares.
Thank you......called....got nowhere with the “Social Justice dept.”....probably a pro-abortion lesbian.
As if the RC didn’t have enough difficulties. Can one say clueless????
Sorry, but I think father Phagler is a..."
That turd should have been tossed on his bum a long, long time ago. He is a wolf leading the sheep astray.
This just shows that the Bishop who supervises Father Pfleger is in complete agreement with him. So if you want to create change, the Bishop is the one that needs to go first.
