Video: Cardinal who Suspended Michael Pfleger has Protesters on his Lawn

Frankly, Father Michael Pfleger should have been defrocked three years ago when he was simply suspended for two weeks by Cardinal Francis George. Upon his return then, Pfleger remained on as Pastor of St. Sabina Catholic Church in Chicago. Nonetheless, there was recently an indication from the Cardinal that Pfleger would be reassigned to a local High School - that may help solve the St. Sabina problem but it helps to cause one somewhere else. Pfleger publicly stated he would not accept that career change and was subsequently suspended by George.

Via WGN:
In a letter sent to Pfleger, Francis Cardinal George wrote, "your ministry as pastor of Saint Sabina Parish and your sacramental faculties as priest of the Archdiocese are suspended…this suspension permits you to retain the office of pastor while temporarily without permission to function."

Cardinal Francis George stated in the letter that Pfleger's recent comments in the media about leaving the Catholic Church if he was assigned to a position at Leo High School was the cause for the suspension.
Here's the news report that goes along with the story. Notice the endorsement Pfleger gets from Mayor Richard Daley. That should be the first indication to the Cardinal that he's making the right decision.
