As a Catholic, I can say there are all sorts of priests nowadays.
Most are good and devout men. However, many sign up because as Father Joe, who performed our marriage ceremony, baptized our children, and subsequently quit the priesthood said, â€œWhere else can a homosexual find so many vulnerable, cloistered men than in a seminary?â€ Many others take Holy Orders because they canâ€™t do anything else and still others because they must just like the uniform.
As for Father Pfleger, please see: http://campaignspot.nationalreview.com/post/?q=MTk3ZjhlZGI0ZTRlOTIyZmQ2NTJiMDU0N2RkNGU3ZGY= and click on the YouTube link.
Pfleger seems to me to be a self-loathing White man who may also fit into one of the last 3 categories cited above. Michelle Malkin calls him Obama’s white cheerleader, (http://michellemalkin.com/2008/05/29/hes-baaaack-obama-supporter-rev-michael-pfleger-flogs-hillarys-white-entitlement-on-the-pulpit/).Â
Others say he’s just an Obama “counselor,” (much like Jesse Jackson was Bubba’s counselor?):Â http://gatewaypundit.blogspot.com/2008/04/after-dumping-wright-obama-counsels.html.Â Â
I simply call him a disgrace!
