Trend Setting?

It looks like Allie and I may be starting a trend. It may just be because of Spring Break, but when we arrived at Adoration at midnight on Thursday, the 11 o’clock lady had her teenaged son with her.

A Letter to Fr. Michael Pfleger

Recently, the name of “Rev. Dr.” Michael L. Pfleger, the radical left-wing Chicago priest who is more aligned with Jeremiah Wright and Louis Farrakhan than with the Catholic Church, has made headlines.

It seems that Lord Francis Cardinal George, OMI, Archbishop of Chicago and President of the USCCB, often mistaken for a conservative, is showing his Oblate of Mary Immaculate colors once again while honoring Pfleger (whom he temporarily suspended a while back after mass protest from Catholics forced him to take some nominal action against this violent anti-life racist heretic).

Meanwhile, His Emminence has called for the censorship of a lay Catholic conservative activist named Tom Roeser, accusing Roeser of “hate speech”!!!

Why? Because Roeser dares to talk about the plague of homosexual priests in the Catholic priesthood, a plague which Cardinal Ratzinger himself has condemned!

It should be noted that George has had the opportunity of serving as bishop in charge of both Oregon Catholic Press and GIA, and if he were as orthodox as many think he is, he could have shut down both these subversive operations.

Anyway, after reading Michelle Malkin mentioning an e-mail exchange with Pfleger, I looked up “Pastor Pfleger’s” parish and sent him an e-mail of my own:

Dear Fr. Pfleger,

Why do you call yourself pastor and not father? Are you embarrassed of being a pastor of the True Church? I notice you spend a lot of time working with Protestant Heretics?

Do you teach your congregation that artificial contraception is always a mortal sin and they will go to Hell if they use it? What about abortion and in vitro fertilization?

Do you teach them that divorce and fornication are mortal sins?

Do you teach them that homosexuality is intrinsically disordered?

Do you teach them that what matters is total conformity to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church, and that *anyone* who thinks race matters *at all* is commiting a sin against justice?

Do you encourage perpetual adoration ? Do you permit liturgical abuses in your parish? Do you say the Vatican II Mass in Latin, the way that Pope Benedict, Pope John Paul II and retired Cardinal Arinze have said it should be said?

I’m curious, because I noticed how you were honored by your Archbishop for your representation of the Catholic faith, and from your public reputation, you are anything but.

Pax et bonum,
John C. Hathaway
