Pfleger Suspended

Looks like the Archbishop of the Chicago Archdioces has suspended Father Snuffy.

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 senators Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton from the pulpit of Trinity Unity Church of Christ last Thursday night.

The Cardinal immediately contacted Pfleger who agreed not to refer to the presidential candidates by name, but as CBS 2 reported at the time, there remained the possibility of some further disciplinary action against Pfleger.

I guess Cardinal George has limits beyond which he won’t be pushed.  Hopefully he’ll make it clear that if Michael Pfleger wants to remain a priest, he needs to start acting like one.

  1. IMO Pfleger stopped being a priest a long time ago, about the time his personal passion for activism overcame the passion of his avocation.

  2. Wait… Pfleger’s Catholic? Excuse me while I go re-read the Book of Macabees.
