Its about time!

For years now, Catholics, such as myself, have been calling for the removal of Fr. Pfleger. He does not represent the Catholic faith...he has his own personal agenda and it became all to evident in the past week with his outrageous remarks at Trinity United Church.

What I am still waiting for is for someone in the MSM to investigate WHY...St. Sabina was awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars in PORK!! Again, as with the rev Wright...Obama has had over a 20 year relationship with this hatefilled man...but pretends he has NO IDEA that Fr. Pfleger had the thoughts he does on America or slavery, etc., etc., etc....same old story!

Chicago cardinal asks Rev. Pfleger to step down

CHICAGO - Cardinal Francis George asked a Chicago priest on Tuesday to temporarily step down from his post to "reflect on his recent statements" regarding Sen. Hillary Clinton and her bid for the White House.

Last week, the Rev. Michael Pfleger mocked Clinton at Sen. Barack Obama's former church, saying the New York senator felt "entitled" to the Democratic nomination for president.

George asked Pfleger to take leave from pastoral duties at St. Sabina Church in order to "reflect on his recent statements and actions in the light of the church's regulations for all Catholic priests," according to a statement Tuesday from the Archdiocese of Chicago.

The leave was effective Tuesday and was scheduled to last "a couple of weeks."

Pfleger, who has apologized for the comments and promised George he would no longer mention any presidential candidates by name, did not believe "this to be the right step at this time," according to the statement.

"While respecting his disagreement, I have nevertheless asked him to use this opportunity to reflect ..." George said in the statement. "I hope that this period will also be a time away from the public spotlight and for rest and attention to family concerns."

Messages seeking comment were left Tuesday for Pfleger and the Archdiocese of Chicago.

The Archdiocese said Pfleger's temporary replacement would be the Rev. William Vanecko, pastor of Chicago's St. Kilian Catholic Church.
