This man Pfleger is a shame and an embarrassment to the Catholic Church. I can’t believe that even now they still have not defrocked him and kicked him out. Amazing.
Vanity...it’ll get you every time.
The Catholic Church’s position is that once a priest is ordained he is a priest for life. Very rarely will a priest be de-frocked, and in fact I can’t remember a recent instance.
Parish priest who misbehave and flout the bishop can be sent to all sorts of remote places where they cannot agitate.
This congregation agitated to keep Pfleiger there, and they were given their way. Now we can see the harm letting someone stay at one parish for 30 years can cause.
