What I Tell Ya?
So much for "courageous leadership" of Cardinal George

From the Chicago Tribune;

Rev. Michael Pfleger is set to return June 16 after mocking Sen. Hillary Clinton, St. Sabina official says

The choir was booming, the dancers were swirling and open seats were scarce in the sweltering pews, but longtime members of St. Sabina Catholic Church thought Sunday's service was a bit flat in the absence of Rev. Michael Pfleger.

Cardinal Francis George had ordered the fiery activist priest to take two weeks off after Pfleger's widely broadcast comments mocking Sen. Hillary Clinton and saying, in what he later called a slip of the tongue, that "America is the greatest sin against God."

Some of his intensely devoted parishioners were worried that his sabbatical would prove permanent. So when a St. Sabina official announced during mass that Pfleger would return June 16, the church exploded in cheers.

"I was just overwhelmed," Brandy Scott, 27, said later. "I had to cry."
Yeah... I feel like crying, too. I'll bet luther is in his little corner of hell, laughing his ass off.

The Beloved and I said the exact same thing at the exact same time when we saw this:

"Un-f[rea]kin'-believable."

Yet not.

(Heavy sigh, shaking head...)
