On April 7, Chicago's Cardinal George will bestow upon Father Michael Pfleger the Office for Racial Justice Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of his life "of service in pursuit of dismantling racism, injustice and inequalities on behalf of African Americans and all people of color."
Does that name "Pfleger" ring a bell? Think back during the 2008 Presidential campaign. To jog some memories, here's a sampling of his "service in pursuit of dismantling racism." (Click here if you can't see embedded video).
What class! Such dignity befitting a Roman Catholic priest, an "alter Christi"! Here he is now, defending fellow racism-mongerers such as Louis Farrakham and Jeremiah Wright. (Click here if you can't see embedded video).
There are more clips, but you get the picture.
Now what on earth could be motivating this "Office for Racial Justice" in its rather dubious choice of honoree? Is it just politically-correct stupidity - or something much more insiduous?
Meanwhile, Cardinal George is apparently trying to silence Tom Roesser, a decent man who has had things to say about the Chicago archdiocese. Read Mr. Roesser's account here.
Quite a dichotomy, eh? Go figure!!!
