Pfleger Wins Out Over Cardinal George

This is probably not going to shock anyone giving the past decisions Cardinal George has made. "Ending a weeks-long standoff, Cardinal Francis George lifted his suspension of the Rev. Michael Pfleger on Friday after the two men met and Pfleger apologized for statements the cardinal took as a threat to leave the priesthood." Apparently Pfleger was able to pass this statement off to appease the Cardinal, "If my remarks in a radio interview seemed to be a threat to leave the priesthood, I am sorry... That was not my intention. I am committed to the priesthood and the Catholic Church." Oh really? That was not what he said earlier. George said he approved Pfleger's statement as a "genuine step toward healing the hurt and clarifying the confusion." Such is the state of the Church in many places at this time. It is an opportunity for heretics and apostates to run free while those who attempt to restore the traditional Catholic faith are banished from the land. Read the entire article here.
Ha ha..I win, you lose!

Cdl George was widely regarded, at first, as a conservative bishop. Yet, Fr. Leftist has thumbed his nose at the Cardinal for the umpteenth time. What kind of hold does Pfleger have over this prelate that causes George to withhold the obvisious pnishment that this flake deserves? Our bishops are becoming a joke because they won't se their authority to punish the disobedient.
