Thank you Cardinal George... I now promise to buy all your books.

Where in the Bible are we instructed to end suffering? Curious. . .

Cardinal George finally did what he should have done long ago. And he didn't go far enough. Pfleger needs to be formally excommunicated. So much tolerance for heretics, so little tolerance for traditionalists. It boggles the mind.


Msgr. Ronald Knox wrote "we are here to colonize heaven, not to make things better on earth."
We can only colonize heaven armed with Truth. Fr. Plfeger demonstrates the antithesis of Msgr. Knox's statement.

How can any Catholic Priest say that he will leave the Catholic Church and form his own Church? If he feels he can leave the Catholic Church, he should not be a Priest and as far as I am concerned is no longer a Priest unless he repents. Yet Fr. Pfleger has said on two separate occasions, years apart, that if he did not get what he wanted he would form his own church. I have heard many people say he has done a lot for the community and I have no doubt that he has, but I don't think he has done much for the Catholic Church. I am happy to see that Cardinal George is reining in Fr. Pfleger it is past time.
Now will someone start reining in the "Catholic" Universities.


I'm afraid the Catholic Church's efforts to evangelize African Americans has been disapppointing. Since the somberness and formality of the traditional liturgy didn't work that well, we've tried the boisterous, declamatory style that has been the standard in black Protestant churches for many years. Fr. Pfleger was given way more leeway than a regular priest to experiment. The result is that over the years, the Archdiocese of Chicago has allowed St. Sabina's to become a Protestant church in all but name.

We are witnessing the result of a prevailing permissive attitude by bishops that not only stain themselves with deploring apostolic behavior; they fail to follow constant reminders by Benedict XVI on how to re-new the Traditional teachings of our Church.

Cardinal George castigates Fr. Pfleger at the eleventh hour but anyhow the reprobate is finally fired and let us hope that parish will change for the better.


How can any Catholic Priest say that he will leave the Catholic Church and form his own Church?

Ask Martin Luther.

Witty thought comparing Pfleger to Martin Luther but the latter is still in the minds of followers after half a millenium while the former will be forgotten...mmmm... the day after tomorrow? I hope so.
