Pfleger: “America is the greatest sin against God;” new “statement” to come?
Michelle Malkin ^ | 6/2/08 | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 06/01/2008 9:43:43 PM PDT by Dawnsblood

More video of Rev. Michael “Vanilla Ice” Pfleger’s race-baiting sermon last week at Trinity United Church of Christ has emerged on YouTube. Boy, was he on a roll. If you thought his bug-eyed, Jeremiah Wright wannabe mimickry of Hillary Clinton’s “white entitlement” was over the top, you’ll love the new excerpts in which Pfleger inveighs that “America is the greatest sin against God.” (”God damn America” was already taken, of course.)

My question is: What will it take for the Catholic Church to cut themselves loose of this racial huckster? “Have the balls” to fire him already. (See also Catholics against Pfleger.)

Obama's campaign released the same statement they did in response to the first comments from this rant sermon.

Let him say whatever he wants. I support his right to be an idiot. The more he opens his mouth, the more it helps us.

As appalling as this moron is, every awful thing he says can only hurt Obama more. So I say, keep it up Pfleger.

I honestly don’t believe either Wright or Pfleger actively want to hamstring Obama.

They just can’t help themselves here. They want to take their acts to the national stage. YouTube is their best friend.

And I’m wondering if an earlier poster is right about Chicago being the epicenter of Black hatemongering. It’s so much easier for a pastor to cater to his flock’s prejudices that to challenge them to take responsibility for their behavior and live moral lives.

We need to give the Cardinal’s “Office of Racial Justice” a call tomorrow, from his letter admonishing the racist Priest, I gather he did not hear his entire “sermon”, or he would be fired on the spot.
http://www.dwellinmylove.org/top_office_for_racial_justice.htm

The core mission of the Office is to address the sin of racism by providing parishes and schools with the tools to initiate and enhance their efforts to combat racism. Cardinal Francis George, O.M.I., established the Office for Racial Justice July 1, 2000. The Office is a direct outgrowth from the Archdiocese of Chicago’s Task Force on Racism as a response to the beating of Lenard Clark in 1997.

The Archdiocese of Chicago will
Acknowledge that racism is a sin that has created a racist society in which the dominant culture benefits.

Encourage Catholic to search their own hearts on the questions of how the sin of racism has touched them.

Guide parishes to proclaim the gospel message that stresses our unity, and design pastoral responses that will help combat the sin of racism.

Create educational opportunities in schools and parishes that will uncover the truth about racism in America and in our local communities while providing the means to bring about healing.

Stimulate church involvement in community initiatives addressing issues of racial justice.

For General Information

Office for Racial Justice

312-751-8336

Workshops on Racism & Ethnic Sensitivity

312-751-5380

Initiatives are driven by three principles:
A call to change attitudes and behaviors that will lead to a conversion of heart and reconciliation among peoples of every ethnic and cultural background.

A commitment to take concrete, visible steps to dismantle personal and systemic racism.

To witness through our lives and actions the unconditional love of God for all human beings regardless of their racial, religious, or national origin.
This recommendation is made the understanding that the archdiocese must combat racism in a manner consistent with the mission of the local church. Accordingly, we see that this commitment connects integrally with the Archdiocese’s evangelization efforts in the new millennium.

I think Pfleger was auditioning for a minstrel show. But we don't have’em any more.

I wonder whether Obama will be able to convince Bill Ayers to make some incendiary statement somewhere so he can publicly denounce and break with him as well? Or would the trifecta be too obvious?

Big difference between the guy sitting in the pew, spewing hate, tripe, and un-christian doctrine and some one doing it from the pulpit.

America and all its works are evil. That is a first principle for these two (and for most of those cheering them from the pews at Trinity). Barack and Michelle believe this as well. So their first instinct is to state out loud what they really believe to be true about America.

Of course afterwards when they realize what this does to their campaign to get votes from whites they start to back and fill, to disavow and to explain and to hope the short attention span of the public will dump these outrageous statements down the memory hole long before November arrives.

And if these statements are not forgotten by the majority of Americans in November and they lose the election, that just proves that America is racist, and justifies their original statement.

The complete Hierarchy of the Catholic Church hasn’t got the fundamental courage to get rid of this loudmouth Moron but let some divorced Mother of 4 kids look to receive holy communion, they all would Jump all over her and excommunicate her immediately.

No wonder the Church is sliding into Oblivion.

Cardinal George should also Quit.

This clown is Cardinal George's responsibility.

but let some divorced Mother of 4 kids look to receive holy communion, they all would Jump all over her and excommunicate her immediately.

Those who are divorced are still allowed to receive Communion.

No wonder the Church is sliding into Oblivion.

Quite the opposite.

Cardinal George should also Quit.

You finally wrote something cogent.

It’s not just the content of his arguments that are appalling.

He also adopts a black accent when talking to the congregation. Isn’t that offensive to the congregation?

It’s a auto-psychological, reflexive admission from the preacher that his audience is “other” than himself, and he has to ‘meet them halfway’ by adopting their language.

In other words, the mentality of a racist.

Preacher, heal thyself.

"I guess there are no self-aggrandizing idiots in your church. You must be proud."

There may be.......but they aren't the PRIEST! Plus - they certainly are not celebrated, applauded, cheered on as they "preach" a demeaning pimp version of racism or invited out to various neighborhood "churches" to spread the good word....

For Pimp Daddy Pflelger to be a Catholic Priest with his own parish --- is a travesty.

It looks like he is planning to keep yammering. A “real statement” is coming soon.

“The Rev. Michael Pfleger, who helped reignite Barack Obama’s pastor problems by mocking Hillary Clinton, said this evening he’s received “thousands of hate threats” since his videotaped pulpit rant.

“They want to kill me,” Pfleger told parishioners during a service in a St. Sabina Church chapel on Chicago’s South Side this evening. “It’s been very ugly.”

In his brief comments this evening, Pfleger did not name any candidates, and said he would address the controversy at a Sunday mass at St. Sabina.

“I’m not going to make a statement,” Pfleger told the crowded chapel. “My real statement will be tomorrow.”

Thanks for posting this.

I have updated my tagline from the unreverend Wright to this comment by Pfleger.
