Chicago Archbishop Acts Quickly to Remove a Priest

It’s too bad Cardinal George can’t act as quickly with priest sex abusers as he did with a priest who made what seemed to George politically incorrect comments about Hillary Clinton. One has to wonder what’s wrong with George. A year ago, when one of his young priests was facing serious allegations of sexual abuse of minors, George dragged his feet before removing Daniel McCormack. Yet, Rev. Michael Pfleger, who has a long history of solid pastoral work in Chicago, was immediately removed from his post after disparaging Hillary Clinton in Barack Obama’s former church.
I just don’t understand how George makes these types of decisions. McCormack has been charged with very serious sexual crimes and Pfleger has been charged with nothing more serious than making an impassioned political statement. It makes me think not much has changed in the Archdiocese of Chicago.
