Skip to comments.Father Pfleger memorializes Trayvon Martin with wooden statue, hoodie, Skittles at church altar

Churches all across the country paid tribute to slain teenager Trayvon Martin on Sunday, some by encouraging their parishioners to wear hoodies.
But Father Michael Pfleger, pastor of St. Sabinas Parish in Chicago, took things a step further. As seen on WGNs News at Nine on Sunday, Pfleger spoke to his congregation with an unusual prop: Martins likeness was slumped at the church altar, complete with a red hoodie, a bag of Skittles and an Arizona Ice Tea.
Pfleger encouraged his congregation to be proactive in their response to the shooting.

Let’s commit idolatry by putting Trayvon on an alter.
“Pfleger encouraged his congregation to be proactive in their response to the shooting.”
...Wow! If that isn’t inciting violence I don’t what is.
Pfleger is a racist POS..Hey Pfeger, Martin was suspended from school for beating up a bus driver..but hey, let’s make him into a saint now shall we
Wait a minute....wasn’t this clown, Fr. Phleger supposed to be long gone from this parish?
I thought the liberal regressives like Fleager were boycotting Arizona. What’s up with the Arizona Tea?
Go to it, Father. Riots in the ‘hood and $9/gal is just what we need to make sure the Sheeple don’t repeat their mistake of 2008.
Whatever Trayvon Martin might have been when he was killed, it appears to me that he was travelling on a downward slope that would ultimately have ended in prison or worse. The real scandal, repeated thousands of times with black youth, is the exposure to a culture that demonizes authority, glorifies ignorance, promotes violence and glamorizes crime. And to their everlasting shame, it’s a culture both winked at and actively endorsed by “good” black people and their institutions.
Unfortunately, if true, it is reported that of 13 shootings resulting from the Florida law, 12 of the people shot had no weapon on them when they were shot. Apparently the legal and legislative establishment is disturbed enough that they are going to revisit this law.
My Church pays tribute to the Luftwaffe.
Your Photo is lifted FB profile of some kid in Georgia whose name Trayvon Martin.
I guess we should tell airborne about that then. I lifted it from him.
This guy’s got a church?
Wow.. what a goofball.
Yes we must be careful with this one.
What an idiot. Time for him to be de-frocked.....finally.
Hoodie , why a hoodie?
Trayvon only wore Hollister.
RE: “Martin was suspended from school for beating up a bus driver..”
If you have a source for that, I sure would appreciate you posting it.
Suspension On Wednesday, April 27, 2011, the homepage of the website of the Archdiocese of Chicago released a statement from Cardinal Francis George in the form of a letter, temporarily suspending Father Pfleger from administering any of the sacraments (save for the administration of the Sacrament of Penance in an emergency, which even laicized or excommunicated priests may do) and from his active ministry as pastor of St. Sabina's Parish. George had recently suggested that Pfleger take the position of president at Chicago's Leo High School, but Pfleger said he would consider leaving the Catholic Church if forced to leave his parish. Cardinal George replied, in part, "If that is truly your attitude, you have already left the Catholic Church."  Cardinal George lifted the suspension on May 20, 2011.
Pfleger wasn't gone from his territory very long ...
