Here is and article from the Chicago Tribune. We have all heard of Fr. Pfleger before and will hear of him again. In a Youtube video, he clearly spews heresy about ordaining woman as priests and bishops, married priests and woman Cardinals all within a Sunday homily at St. Sabina’s in Chicago. The illustrious Thomas Peters writes about Fr. Pfleger here.
“The embattled (At war with who? Christ, the Church!) pastor of St. Sabina Roman Catholic Church told radio show hosts Tavis Smiley and Cornel West this weekend that he would look outside the Catholic Church (A heretic will now become an apostate) if offered no other choice but to work at a Catholic high school. (Yes, there is a choice. Live up to the promises made at ordination. “Respect and obey”)
The Rev. Michael Pfleger also said on the “Smiley & West” public radio program that he had been banned (Thanks be to God) from speaking at events in the archdiocese and blamed pressure from conservative (A better word would be “Faithful”) Catholics and the National Rifle Association for his most recent clash with Chicago’s Cardinal Francis George.
“I want to try to stay in the Catholic Church,” (It’s not that difficult, just say: “I may not agree with Your Eminence, but I will obey, for you are God’s voice in my life!”) Pfleger said. “If they say ‘You either take this principalship of [Leo High School] or pastorship there or leave,’ then I’ll have to look outside the church. I believe my calling is to be a pastor. (Your calling was affirmed by Holy Mother Church, and you remain a pastor as long as you are are in good standing with Her) I believe my calling is to be a voice for justice. (A priest’s calling is to be holy and this is achieved through obedience) I believe my calling is to preach the Gospel. In or out of the church, I’m going to continue to do that.”
In an interview with the Tribune, Pfleger clarified that he feels called to preach and push for social justice in a Catholic context. (The Church is the greatest proponent of justice!) He said he loves the Catholic Church and prefers to stay there. But going to Leo full-time would not happen, Pfleger said.
“I’ve always said I could not do something that I don’t feel (Feelings, feelings, feelings) called or equipped to do,” he told the Tribune. “A full-time position at Leo is not something I’m equipped to do. (We are all equipped to do anything under obedience) I think Leo has made it clear they don’t see any need for me to come there. For both sides, it would be a lose-lose.””
Very sad! Pray that Fr. Pfleger!
