Cardinal George Suspends Fr. Michael Pfleger

Posted By Lisa Graas on April 27, 2011 
Father Michael Pfleger reportedly had threatened to quit the Catholic Church if he was made to take an assignment running a Catholic school and leave St. Sabina Catholic Church, where he’s served for three decades.
In a letter released Wednesday, Cardinal Francis George said that violated Pfleger’s vows to obey.
The Cardinal said, “If that truly is your attitude, you have already left the Catholic Church, and therefore are not able to pastor a Catholic church.”
The Cardinal also said Father Pfleger had publicly “misrepresented” their discussions about the possible reassignment to the school.
