Cardinal George disciplines Fr. Pfleger

Cardinal corrects Fr. Plfeger on his actions at Trinity.

Cardinal George Temporily Removes Pfleger From St. Sabina.

Francis Cardinal George is temporarily removing Father Michael Pfleger from his position as pastor of St. Sabina Roman Catholic Church on Chicago's South Side.

CBS 2 Chief Correspondent Jay Levine reports the move comes after several days of deliberation and consultation by the Cardinal, who first learned about Pfleger's racially charged comments about senators Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton from the pulpit of Trinity Unity Church of Christ last Thursday night.

The Cardinal immediately contacted Pfleger who agreed not to refer to the presidential candidates by name, but as CBS 2 reported at the time, there remained the possibility of some further disciplinary action against Pfleger. MORE

There are a number of news videos of this as well as parishioners reactions to the decision by the good Cardinal.

Just watching the clips of the angry congregation makes me realize that Cardinal George better take a closer look at this parish. In one clip one can see the liturgical dancing around the alter, which appears to be during mass.

That's a no-no...

It looks like Fr. Plegers influence is deeply rooted here. The parishioners may be upset, however they better think twice about following their Bishop.

And Father Pfleger better do some deep reflection...

Show time's over Father.
