It look like Rev. Michael Pfleger, the charismatic clergyman of St. Sabina Catholic Church in Chicago have been suspended by his boss, Cardinal George, for his comments on Smiley and West show three weeks ago.
The tension between the Rev. Michael Pfleger and the Archdiocese of Chicago have come to a bitter end.....Wednesday Cardinal Francis George suspended the outspoken priest from St. Sabina Catholic Church.....Father Pfleger have led this South Side parish for over 30 years....but selecting someone to take the place of the charismatic father won't be easy.....Father Pfleger stated he has been banned from speaking at events, and blamed critics on the political right for the calls to remove him:
“There are two main groups that seemingly have put a big push on to get rid of me in the last year, and that is the right-wing conservative Catholics, and that is also the NRA, who said I have been much too vocal about assault weapons; much too vocal about guns being accountable; guns being registered to gun owners,”From all the on-line reports that I have read about Father Pfleger... it look like he has done great works in his community and he really seem to care about the people that are in the community....there are very few pastors/priests today who are truly interested in social justice...more are interested in building additions to their churches than the lives of their community.
