This Explains A Lot

  • Churches and other houses of worship need money just like all of us do, if only to keep the lights on and try to help some people cope with their own problems.

    We also like to think our religious leaders always preach what they honestly believe is true, no matter who’s supporting their ministries.

    It surely was no small thing when St. Sabina Church, a Roman Catholic parish in mostly black Auburn Gresham, got $200,000 from the George Lucas Family Foundation in 2014.
$200 grand sure buys a lot of support from Pfleger:
  • Since Lucas declared the museum plan dead last week, Pfleger has upped his attacks on Friends of the Parks, the nonprofit group that blocked the hopes of the billionaire filmmaker and Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

    Pfleger told me he has no regrets for likening Friends of the Parks to the Gangsters Disciples because they boss the lakefront just as street gangs on the South and West Sides claim turf.

    “Nobody has ever elected them,” Pfleger says. “They simply appointed themselves.
You mean like, say, a renegade "man of the cloth" who appointed himself spokes-asshole to attack a non-profit that stood in the way of the mayor's wish to give away land he had no right to give, to a billionaire who could have built his private art repository in any of a thousand vacant lots all around St. Sabina. Which, coincidentally, would save the black and brown children his multi-millionaire wife worried about, tens of thousands in bus fare to come see art that had nothing to do with Star Wars (a wholly owned subsidiary of Walt Disney Corporation).

Hmmmm, this from Phleger, the priest who refuses to change parishes every so many years like every other catholic priest has to do? the priest who blackmails the archdiocese by saying if he can't stay at St. Sabina, 30-plus years going now, he will leave the catholic church?

Who elected Phleger to head up St. Sabina and to tell his boss, the cardinal, what to do?

Then the weak and spineless catholic church here, the same church that just moved pedophiles from one parish to another, later settling lawsuits instead of fighting them, caves in to Phleger and lets him stay at st. sabina.

Ooooooh but noooooo, that donation from Lucas had nothing to do with his ranting against Friends of the Park.......

Bought him like a whore.

Lucas probably isn't the first that has bought his favor.

At least Mr. Flaegler wasn't cheap. $200K is a good chunk of change. And even if Chicago doesn't get the Lucas museum, he gets to keep the money. Sounds like what Judas did when adjusted for inflation.

Which he would never have mentioned and the public would never have found out about if someone had not looked over the Lucas Foundation IRS filings.

If he compares the Friends of the Parks to gang members, shouldn't he be on their side? He sides with all the criminal pieces of shit that the police have to put down. He sides with the criminal "activists" who choose to start riots instead of peacefully and legally protesting. Maybe he should've compared them to a white gang. At least then it would make sense for him not to like them.

Fr. "Faker" is Living Proof of the hypocrisy of the Catholic Church, especially in Chicago. The day that the City is forced to end its residency requirement, Catholic Churches and Catholic Schools in Chicago will fold! We will no longer have to pay for settlements involving Child Molesting Priests, (pedophiles) or Dead Weight Churches like St. Sabina. The Church is spineless in allowing Fr. "Faker" to remain in power this long. But then again, if a male Olympic Gold Medalist can become a woman; I guess an Old White guy, can pretend to be Black!

Don't families with children in Catholic Schools have to "donate" a specified amount weekly to the church?
If that's the case, it's hard for those families to hold back from that collection plate, even tho many would love to.

I solved my problem with the catholic church by not going to the catholic church any longer. I can go to many other churches with out having to listen to them beg for money and how they need another roof and this and that and all the bs.
Someone tell them that is not what church is for.

As for Pfleger, I just wish he'd stop that fake black accent.
I'm surprised that it doesn't offend the blacks in his parish.

Thank you,SCC, for mentioning that this "Lucas museum" will literally have NOTHING to do with Star Wars. That was one of the big tricks Rahm was playing on all of us. Lucas sold the rights to all things Star Wars. He has zero affiliation with it now. That place wouldn't have even had a painting of an Ewok in it. Yet, Rahm and his cronies played this up as the new "Star Wars museum" that all the children would love! It was all BS. 100% BS. The museum was to be called the George Lucas Museum of Narrative Art, not the Star Wars Museum. It was a fraud that was about to be played on every Chicagoan. Good riddance to it and a big Thank You to the Friends Of The Parks.

>>>> “Nobody has ever elected them,” Pfleger says. “They simply appointed themselves." <<<<

Now that's funny. That coming from the person who appointed themselves as final arbitrator on what RIGHTS Law Abiding Citizen may exercise in Illinois -- for self-defense and other purpose that are nobody's f--king business, especially HIS! And the self-appointed final arbitrator on what LEGAL and heavily regulated products are allowed to be sold, i.e.: Firearms.

Also, I'd almost bet he rent that the 'good Father' is clueless on what was to fill that Lucas monstrosity. Thinking it would be full of 'cool' inter-active Star Wars exhibits like an updated Museum of Science and Industry, and not full of esoteric pieces of 'narrative art' that most people, and folk, couldn't care less about.

Especially the 'black and brown children' bandied about by Rahm et al, like they're Pawns in Lucas' ego driven power grab for lakefront land.

My local Church does not hold the same views as the community activist Priest, but I will no longer contribute a dime to the Catholic Church. If my local church wants me and many others like me to support them again maybe they need to organize and protest this Arch Bishops support of this renegade "Priest". I doubt they will get far with this Arch - Bishop since he appears to be cut from the same cloth , as a matter of fact so does this activist no nothing Pope. How in the hell does the Catholic Church expect to sell the Papal infallibility thing when you have this Pope telling a sovereign nation that they are unchristian to protect their borders. Didn't hear him criticizing Mexico about their very strict and harsh prison sentences for the Guatemalans violating their southern border. Another Religious hypocrite.
