Cardinal George gets what Barack Obama only understood under pressure:
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.
Did Obama know about these things when he subsidized the same hate that the Catholic Church is suspending him for? What about his contributions? ($22,500 in 2006 and $26,270 in 2007)
My stunned is beeper!
Must all the dirty laundry be hung in public to get attention and action?
If so — then lets get on with it.
DEFUND the political radicals at their phony pulpits.
Catholic church needs some tough guys like,
THE BISHOP !
Cardinal George only understood these things under pressure also.
For years he let this heretic mislead his parish and cause scandal across the country.
Well its only for a couple weeks but its something...
should be longer
Sweet, sweet schadenfruede. See ya, Friar Phlegm.
Pfleger’s got free time to pick up a hammer and help build Jeremiah Wright’s mansion.
I wish I could start flaming and tell you that you are wrong BUT sadly you are 100 percent correct.
Chicago is a cesspool from The Mayor Richard Daley to Obama to Wright to Father Phlegar the RACIST Catholic priest
Temporary needs to be a long time...
Lesson learned by Father Pfleger:
MARXIST Liberation Theology may come back and bite you in the Duppa!
Ha ha ha! Pfleger gets what he richly deserves.
The thing that gets to me is Daley and the fact that Ayers Dad was head of the Power Company...and apparently sees no problem with his son’s bombing activities.
It won't be -- "temporary" means 'til the media heat is off.
Last time George tried to get rid of him, his response was "Make me!" and George did nothing. This time, he'll go (temporarily) -- but only because the Chicago/Obama machine says so. That's my take.
CNN’s take: Priest who mocked Sen. Clinton gets temporary leave of absence http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2008/06/03/priest-who-mocked-sen-clinton-gets-temporary-leave-of-absence/
Good point. Scriptural authority and Christian doctrine has been hashed out over the last five hundred years by thousands of Protestant scholars and every point has been hammered and forged, proven and settled upon.
RC scholarship has been controlled by a self serving oligarchy having much less interest in truth than it does in power and control. One Pope and a few cardinals having absolute control at any one time.
Its funny how free thinking people insist that the only way to live is free but then simultaneously believe the only way to worship is in slavery to a discredited hundreds of times over human institution.
Here’s Pfleger’s latest sermon:
Hell was quite content to sit back and let this apostate rant on as long as he could...
“You are going to have to have the balls to fire me” ~ Michael Pfleger
Pastors like this are more common than Catholics want to admit.
What exactly does suspending him for two weeks accomplish?
The PERFECT caption to that photo:
We shuck and jive, and the white devils keep throwing money at us —— How sweet it is!
So the Pfleghmer got coughed up. Only until the campaign is over, I am quite sure.
Right. He can join the Habitat for Humility.
You’re as nutty as Pfleger.
Right. And you believe the Pope is the Vicar of Christ.
Of course, Benedict XVI IS the vicar of Christ on earth. Permanent advantage: Cunningham!
