Posted on 11/18/2012 9:27:42 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
In a candid interview with Dr. Boyce Watkins about gang violence, Father Michael Pfleger of The Faith Community of St. Sabina in Chicagos Auburn Gresham neighborhood, provides an explicit definition of abortion. It is his belief that anything stopping another human being from fulfilling their God-given purpose is a form of abortion.
Father Pfleger also discusses the Peace Tournament he organized that included four of Chicagos most powerful gangs, or as he references them,organizations that came together to play a peaceful game of basketball. He explains how he continues to assist members of the organizations by helping them acquire their education and by prepping them for jobs.
A portion of the interview are transcribed below. The full interview can be seen here.
On the true meaning of abortion:
"We always link abortion to something that goes on in a womb, in a clinic. If we believe that every single human being has a G0d-given destiny and purpose then anything, anything that cuts short that person from reaching that destiny, that divine purpose thats a form of abortion. We just narrow abortion. So bad education is abortion. No jobs are abortion. Racism is abortion. Poverty is abortion. So when we start to look at that way
So you know, lets stop aborting these kids out here..."

Listening to Father Michael Pfleger is a form of lobotomy.
Make me embarrassed to be Catholic!
Given the state of the inner cities while a black man is in the White House, does this men Obama is aborting black youth?
Pfleger publicly mocks pro-life people in exactly the same terms used by other pro-aborts. He is merely attempting to appropriate the word “abortion” to push other issues he actually cares about.
Why does he continue to wear a collar? Because the Cardinal Archbishop of Chicago is gutless.
thats a bulls eye and a bingo
< snort >
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?
One dopey comment at the link.
It is his belief that anything stopping another human being from fulfilling their God-given purpose is a form of abortion.
Oh, he should wear a collar. A spiked one.
The coming war may be .. interesting.
How does Pfleger know that it’s not God’s divine purpose for me to keep every dollar I earn to help as I see fit?
You can’t say killin a baby is okay and then tell us that lousy schools is like killin those good and cherished products of God!!
Hand palm. Where’s the Cardinal when you need him.
That should be the standard first statement that every lawyer gives at his client's arraignment. ;^)
So if your God-given purpose is theft, selling narcotics to teens, making babies with 18 baby mommies and paying no child support... “Rev” Pfleger is on your side?
Yeah. It’s too late for Ted Bundy but Charlie Manson needs to give him a call. Then again Charlie’s purpose may be to be a clown for other inmates and wear out prison mattresses. But who are we to say that? Give Pfleger a call, Chuck!
He’s right. We should stop ignoring black teenagers and start holding them accountable for every anti-social act word and/or deed for which they are responsible. We should start treating them like the nascent adults they are and expect them to support the children they bring into this world without showering them with EBT cards, free rent and SSDI “crazy checks” for the kids. We should hold them accountable for every crime the criminal organizations they belong to commit. We should stop calling it a tragedy when they get shot to death while committing crimes.
Proving once again that a Basketball game can solve every problem in the black community.
President Obama was re-elected because he played basketball and Romney didn’t.
Hey, Pfleger, did you know that one of the most stupid things in the world is a white guy who tries to pretend he’s black? Quit the copycat ghetto inflection-—you’re pathetic.
Seems he's been 'aborted' too. Guess he didn't get a chance to play basketball growing up.
Therefore, your support for public schools, unions, and the minimum wage - all of which have negative impacts on black teens - is totally dead wrong. Stupid or evil ... evil or stupid ...? I’d have to go with “Both.”
He should have been defrocked years ago. The guy is an embarrasment to the Catholic faith.
He won't like making that point about black teenagers but then he'll have to explain why he doesn't want to focus on the murder of black teens instead of just midnight basketball or whatever.
should have been:
". . . murder by black teens . . ."
wait a sec... Pfleger is anti-abortion??
The libs are gonna turn on him!
Nah, they know a wink and a nod when they see one and this is just an attempt to have something to say about their political agenda other than "social justice".
