    Apparently the Chicago diocese has had enough of Michael Pfleger, at least for now. The cardinal has suspended the controversial priest who called America the “greatest sin against God”, and who mocked Hillary Clinton from the pulpit last week: CBS 2 News has learned that Francis Cardinal George is temporarily removing Father Michael Pfleger from his position as pastor of St. Sabina Roman Catholic Church on Chicago’s South Side. CBS 2 Chief Correspondent Jay Levine reports the move comes after several days of deliberation and consultation by the Cardinal, who first learned about Pfleger’s racially charged comments about Sen. Barack...

    The controversy has not subsided and Cardinal George has now expanded his pastoral oversight and care of his priest. He has asked Father Pfleger to step down from his pastorate for a two week leave. The directive, like the last one, was made public by the Cardinal’s office. The priest was not supportive of the request: “To put recent events in some perspective, I have asked Father Michael Pfleger, Pastor of St. Sabina’s Parish, to step back from his obligations there and take leave for a couple of weeks from his pastoral duties, effective today. Fr. Pfleger does not believe...

    Say it with me: Boo-freaking-hoo. Via the Chicago Sun-Times’ Cathleen Falsani: Pfleger has apologized for “the words that I chose” and for “my dramatization.” Pfleger told me he called the Clinton campaign to apologize directly but had not heard back from Clinton or her representatives.All that is well and good, but how, as a friend and passionate supporter of Obama’s campaign for president, could he do what he did, with cameras rolling?Pfleger’s short answer? He didn’t think the service and his “conversation” — a more casual address than a classic sermon, he explained — were being broadcast live online, as...

In the statement, Cardinal Francis George says he asked the Rev.

    How long can Barack Obama carry forward this ruse that he is a uniter, when he has placed himself in a climate that is, at the very least, quite accomodating to the anti-white racist perspective, vulgarity and anti-Americanism? It strained credulity that Obama could have been unaware of the toxic environment of his Trinity United Church of Christ and its pastor, Jeremiah Wright. That didn't pass the laugh test. But now we have the Rev. Michael Pfleger bursting on the scene and spewing the most offensive, racially charged remarks imaginable. Truly, if Obama weren't the darling of the MSM and...

    Jerusalem Post ^ | March 24, 2008 | RON KAMPEAS/ JTA
    Sen. Barack Obama says that a pro-Hamas op-ed printed in his church's bulletin was "outrageously wrong." In an issue dated July 22, 2007, in a section titled "Pastor's Page," the Trinity United Church in Chicago reprinted an article by Hamas official Moussa Abu Marzook. The article, which originally appeared as an op-ed in the Los Angeles Times, justifies the Palestinian terrorist group's denial of Israel's right to exist. The church's pastor, Jeremiah Wright Jr., who retired this year, has stirred controversy for Obama's campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination with statements likening Israel to colonialists and blaming attacks on the...
