Dissident Chicago priest Fr Michael Pfleger has finally been ousted. I've written about him and his antics much in the past, and always wondered what hold he had over Cardinal George that kept the latter from removing him. One might have thought his crack about "snuffing out" that gun shop owner would have gotten him expelled, if no laicized.
It took a sex abuse allegation to purge the Archdiocese of Chicago of a cancerous priesthood. I do not offer an opinion as to the veracity of the abuse allegations. I regret that it took so long to eject Pfleger and to end his spiritually poisonous "ministry".
