Frs. Pfleger and Pavone on Hillary
By Matt C. Abbott
June 11, 2016
In a recent Facebook post, Father Michael Pfleger, who was supporting Bernie Sanders, decided to endorse Hillary Clinton, albeit unenthusiastically:
Although, I supported Bernie, Hillary seems now to be the Democratic Candidate for President……what I do know is that Trump cannot win!!!!! Donald Trump is the Candidate who has rounded up the worse of America for a kind of “last Hope ” for the Racists, Bigots, Sexists and Supremists to keep control!!!! While Hillary may not excite us…..Trump ought to scare us!!!!! It is not the future of the White House that is at stake, but the future of our Souls
Father Pfleger is perhaps the only priest-activist here in the U.S. who can get away with publicly saying and doing just about anything. It’s been like that for years. I can’t help but wonder if he knows where the bodies are buried in the Archdiocese of Chicago, so to speak.
I asked Father Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, to respond to Father Pfleger’s unsurprising endorsement.
