I would.

[/quote]I'm new, so excuse me from jumping in. I don't have an issue with married priests, since it is within the tradition of the Church. In fact, my husband and I once attended a parish with a married priest. I think he used to be Anglican or something like that. Although we didn't stay in the parish long, it wasn't because of the priest being married-it was more the very liberal slant of the parish-they were rather charismatic.I don't do drums at Mass very well:-(  I obviously do have an issue on the rest of course!

Actually, it is perfectly reasonable to treat the issue of married clergy in a different way than women's ordination.  The former is disciplinary and the latter is doctrinal.  It is possible for there to be married clergy (although it is not, in my opinion, a good idea) while ordaining women is not possible.

...The priest must also speak and act like this: "My doctrine is not mine, I do not propagate my ideas or what pleases me, but I am the mouth and heart of Christ and make present this unique and common doctrine, which the universal Church has created and which creates eternal life."

Of course not, but I do pick and choose how solemn the parish is. I don't care for charismatic parishes. I wouldn't think anybody here would not agree with me on that. I was raised in a solemn parish and that is what I prefer. Presently we attend a parish where the EF is offered by Una Voce.

[/quote]Exactly right. My husband's family were mostly Hungarian in descent and attended Marionite parishes.It is the norm for their priests in this Rite to be married men.It is a non-issue for me

I normally try to keep weekend blog posts light and non-controversial, to provide some opportunity for rest in these difficult times. But I believe this is too important to let go until Monday.

I’m going to write this post presuming that Fr. Pfleger will see and read it, because I have a strong suspicion he reads AmP.

Yesterday Fr. Pfleger posted this to his Facebook fanpage:  will not show up--check link to read but basically said he was forced to make an 'apology' and that 'haters' want his removal.


And before you attempt to delete this evidence, Fr. Pfleger – know that I understand how Google cache works. You can’t hide this now.

Fr. Pfleger is actively undermining the authority and respect of Cardinal George among his congregation. Fr. Pfleger, you hold your parish in trust from your Archbishop. How dare you undermine him before your congregation in this public fashion? This is a textbook definition of scandal. Do you think the Archdiocese won’t find out? (They will, I can guarantee that.)

I guess you really did mean it when you said “I don’t need the pope, I don’t need the Cardinal” (1:15 in this video). Well, where do you think your priestly faculties and ordination came from?

Next – and more to the point – is it your claim that you did not mean the public apology you wrote? Do you expect your followers to respect the fact that you did something that was so against your conscience? Were you lying to the Archdiocese, or coerced? Do you realize that whatever you did, you have gravely scandalized the faithful and violated your own conscience, which you hold so dear?

As one of the “right-winged” who want your “removal”, let’s get down to brass tacks: how dare you use the violence done to children as a cover for your own heresy and dereliction of priestly duty? You say we are wasting your time and attention from these sacred social justice causes you champion by bringing up your anti-Catholic heretical preaching. Well, as one of my readers pointed out, if you are so focused on their plight, then why spend time in your homilies tearing down the established teaching of the Church and of Christ? If anyone is guilty of wasting our time, it is you, by your own standards.

As a Catholic who is truly concerned about the social justice issues you claim to champion, I’m calling for your public, sincere repentance. Or father, show yourself the door. Christ did not die to have you lead his children astray, and the Archdiocese of Chicago has not treated you with all possible respect and deference to have you stab them in the back the way you have done.

I’m calling on all concerned Catholics to contact the Archdiocese and bring their attention to this post, and thereby to Fr. Pfleger’s public actions to undermine the authority of the archdiocese, of Cardinal George personally, and of the teaching of the Church in general.

Call the Office of the Archbishop of Chicago directly at 312-534-8230 (or email archbishop@archchicago.org).

Do it for the poor souls of Fr. Pfleger’s parish, and for the honor of good priests everywhere. And let us pray to Christ for the strength to oppose dissent from His divine teachings wherever we find it today.

Cardinal George sidelined him in 2008 for suggesting Sen. Clinton was a racist. I wonder what the cardinal will do about this?
If nothing happens it sends the wrong message.
