On Tuesday, Rev. Michael Pfleger was asked to take a leave of absence from St. Sabina Catholic Church. Pfleger is the white Catholic priest who gave a sermon a couple weeks ago containing ridiculous and offensive remarks about Hillary Clinton, whites and racism in general. His comments included this now familiar sound bite:
“When Hillary was crying I really don’t believe it was put on. I really believe that she just always thought ‘This is mine. I’m Bill’s wife. I’m white. And this is mine. Then out of nowhere came, ‘Hey I’m Barack Obama.’ And she said, ‘Oh damn! Where did you come from? I’m white! I’m entitled! There’s a black man stealing my show!’”
So Pfleger opens his mouth, says some pretty stupid things, makes the Catholic Church look bad and is suspended for at least two weeks.
All over the country (and around the world), hundreds of priests have been guilty of pedophelia, child rape, etc. (Check out these posts here, here, here and here.) And what punishment did THESE priests receive for destroying the lives of literally THOUSANDS OF children who would grow up to be troubled men and women? Nothing. No actual punishment for decades except warnings from the higher ups and maybe a transfer to a different parish in a different part of the city or a different part of the country.
Wow! Now THAT demonstrates some solid priorities! I wonder what has led the Catholic Church to believe that Christ cares more about what one loud mouth priest SAYS over what hundreds of sick, twisted, evil priests DO?!?
