"Dear Catholic Church, Go To Hell"
- Rev Michael Pfleger, Archdiocese of Chicago

Here's some of the article from LifeSiteNews.com; (Emphasis mine) Fr. Pfleger on Apology: They Made Me Do it, But I Didn't Mean it

CHICAGO, Illinois, April 16, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In the latest episode in an ongoing controversy, Fr. Michael Pfleger has again publicly voiced his support for women's ordination, this time in a comment posted to his Facebook fan page. In that comment, he also notes that the archdiocese made him issue the apology he put out on Wednesday.

“Sunday, I mentioned in my Sermon that I believe in married Priests and Woman Priests,” the Facebook comment reads. “I was then told that I had to apologize for saying it durning [sic] a Sermon because that is not allowed, even though that is my opinion.

“I have received much hate from the right-winged who want my removal,” he added. “Amazing... Nobody Blogged me or youtubed me about helping Save our children or Stopping the Violence...”

His comment follows a Wednesday statement published on the Archdiocese of Chicago's website, which has since been removed. In the statement he admits that he advocated for women priests and bishops in his homily, but then says that, “While this is my personal opinion, I do respect and follow the Catholic Church teachings and I am sorry I failed to do this.”

Pfleger’s Sunday homily had been posted to the website of his parish, Saint Sabina's Catholic Church, and the 30-second clip in which he made the controversial remarks quickly made it onto Youtube. The homily and Fr. Pfleger's call for women's ordination remained posted on the parish website as of press time.

Since when is it considered "hateful" to correct a brother who's gone astray?

What a Pfoolish man

It'a not enough to remove Pfleger, Cd. George needs to be removed as well. He has known for years that Pfleger was a loose cannon, and has done nothing about him.

I agree with scotju. This is mostly a leadership problem. Pfleger himself is merely a troublesome issue.

I think Pfleger would be better off being an Evangelical Protestant preacher in a Black Church. On second thought, I opine that most African-American congregations and their pastors would reject Pfleger.

The only reason that this heretical priest is still wearing a collar is because somebody wants him saying what he says.

There is no other truth to it.

For Peter's sake, Cardinal George kick him out! Let him go. He's already gone anyway. And his parishoners are already gone too since they come back to him week after week.
