Skip to comments.Father Pfleger memorializes Trayvon Martin with wooden statue, hoodie, Skittles at church altar
Posted on 03/26/2012 12:02:09 AM PDT by Rufus2007
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 ...
Do you have a link for that?
Pfleger is a pitiful excuse for a human.
Fr. Pfleger, the Vanilla Ice of racist black preachers.
What is the background of the other 12 shootings? How many of the people shot were trying to break into a house? Armed or not, you enter a house and put others in fear for their safety you get what you deserve.
Church’s acroos the nation? WTF.
He wasn’t mentioned at my Church.
If my priest had pulled this crap he woud have been looking at my backside as I walked out the door, and he would have seen the front side right after mass.
We had 1000 people gather on our Main Street yesterday.
Of course, Obama was doing coke at this age...
Thanks for posting. I’m tired of Tray’s baby pictures.
If Zimmerman didn't call into 9-11, I might have a whole different take on the matter.
Have we seen pictures of the babies fathered by Trayvon? I haven’t but bet they are out there on their Gran ma’s table top.
What an outrage!
A Maryland priest is suspended & publicly humiliated for denying Holy Communion to an admitted bull dyke Buddhist yet this guy is still a priest!??!?!
The truth is frequently cruel
It is not shameful to assess and then project based on real probability.
The probability for a Trayvon child or even multiple children by more than one mother is high.
Malia goes to Sidwell to insure she is not in contact with the likes of Trayvon
The purpose of a defensive firearm is protect a person from assault by bigger stronger thugs, who do not need a weapon to kill you.
To a mugger, the ideal victim is weak, elderly, female, or otherwise easily overpowered without need of weapons, because assault with a weapon results in more serious charges than using your fists and feet. And as SimpleMan points out, a strong man in his prime can kill a weaker victim with just fists and feet.
Police crime reports give evidence to your statement.
Not saying whether it’s true or not, but here
I cannot understand why this clown’s bishop allows him to continue in his antics.
Pfleger is a anti-gun wacko who happens to be a priest.
Perhaps the bishop likes the contributions ($$$) this clown's congregation make to the diocese?
It was posted on another thread last night, if I find it I will link you to it
Tensions still simmer in Trayvon Martin shooting case

I haven't read any other account for his suspension.
Any self respecting Catholic who attends mass presided by this fraud Father Pfleger ought to have their head examined.
I’m not a Catholic but I’d sure say so too.
I am pretty certain Pfleger is possessed.
Never mind, I just saw post #41 and the article at the link.
