Pfleger is a Pfool

We caught the news last night, and there's rev Michael Pfleger spouting off about how this police sergeant ought to be suspended, fired and prosecuted (and probably drawn, quartered and boiled in oil for good measure. The TV stations must have cut out that part.) Now, as narrow-minded, right-wing fanatics, we would certainly support summary executions on the street for certain offenses. But as this is a country of laws, we are obliged to follow the rules. ALL of the rules. Not just the ones we think fit a particular situation.

Not Pfleger though. Without an investigation, without a hearing and without a finding, he's ready to destroy this sergeant. A human being who might have faults, but who, as a citizen, under the rule of law and the rules of HIS UNION and UNDER THE RULES OF HIS GOD DAMN EMPLOYER is entitled to due process.

Rules of law for thee but not for me? Pfleger is a symptom of exactly what is wrong with this entire incident. Rush to judgment, failure to follow established rules, race baiting, innuendo, half truth, the list goes on and on. And after today's headlines of more federal indictments, watch for the city to throw this sergeant overboard in another attempt to stop the bleeding. The mayor is finished, he just doesn't know it yet, and there's no reason for him protect this sergeant. FOP ought to be working on responses, because the blowback from this incident is going to reverberate for years.

Father Pfleger is Cool!

Okay, I know I'll catch some flak for this one, but here goes.

Yea, maybe,just maybe, Father Pfleger overacted a bit. Yet, that does not take away from the work he has done for his congregation. Before hemarcghed on City Hall the area around 79th st. from Halsted st. to Ashland ave. was terrible looking. Go down there now, it's entirely diferent. He had alot to do with that.

Bull-loney. Pfleger is an ass. A media hound. A grandstander who constantly denigrates the police. Every other priest in the archdiocese has to rotate thier assignment every 7 years, with the cardinal allowing one deferment. Pfleger has had THREE and everytime the cardinal makes noises about moving him, Pfleger rallies the people around and demands that he be allowed to stay. The moderator has it right; Pfleger is a prime example of someone who follows the rules he wants to follow and not the ones that apply to everyone else. Screw him and the horse he rode in on.

There are a few priests who have been allowed to stay past their two SIX year terms, my friend.

Let's see.... the pastor of Old St. Pat's, for example. Whose parish is that? Mayor Daley and the rest of the rich yuppies who attend there. There are other, lesser known parishes, but I'll just throw that one out.

Is he a media hound? A bit, but you cannot deny he has done much for his area. He has a huge attendance on Sundays and has one of the largest collections in the archdiocese.

Today at about 1515 hrs. on their show at WCKG, Steve Dahl and Buzz, the newsman, were again taking Meeks to task for getting out of the auto. I think his show is downloaded someplace.

P/S Maybe the good reverend got carried away with Psalm 37, if I remember from my theology days, you know the one, "the meeks shall inherit the earth."

Get even write to the Cardinal and advise him you are going to with hold your weekly donation for your local parish because of Mikey Boys actions. Just donate it to another Catholic Charity outside the city. You will recieve a response from the church. Who is the fat black man with him on Friday evenings at Foxes 100 Western?

Pflegder is a moron. He thinks by making waves withe police he is gaining love from the blacks in his congregation. Its a shame he is though. fledger also belittles the catholic church and its leadership often in the news. remember when he was advised it was time to step down from his kingship and move on, maybe to a white second class church and pledger aired it all out in his friend the media. He made the church out to be racist bastards. I was pissed, get rid of that fool.
