Skip to comments.ISRA: Chicago Priest ( Michael Pfleger ) Calls for Murder of Gun Shop Owner

Nobody expected Saturday's Operation PUSH protest at Chuck's Gun Shop & Range to be anything other than a circus of the bizarre. However, nobody anticipated that an address by a Chicago priest would include a call for the murder of a suburban gun shop owner and legislators who oppose gun control.
During an address at an anti-gun rally in front of Chuck's, Rev. Michael Pfleger, pastor of St. Sabina's Church, exhorted the crowd to "drag" shop owner, John Riggio, from his shop "like a rat" and "snuff" him.
Rev. Pfleger went on to tell the crowd that legislators that vote against gun control legislation should be "snuffed" as well. As many know, "snuff" is slang for especially violent murder.
The ISRA has a recording of Pfleger's remarks in MP3 format.
"Certainly Fr. Pfleger has offered Absolution to a murderer or two during his tenure as a priest," commented ISRA Executive Director, Richard Pearson. "That's why it's shocking to hear him actually advocate the murder of a gun shop owner who has never committed a crime in his life.
He then compounds the problem by calling for the murder of legislators who disagree with his personal political views -- something I suspect is a felony in this state. Pfleger's comments were disgusting and dangerous. And, I seem to remember that the Fifth Commandment frowns on murdering one's neighbor."

And they say conservatives are violent. B-P
Where is Bill Clinton now ?
The scumsack should have been arrested for inciting to riot, and thrown in prison for about a hundred years.
The heretic Pfleger should be careful what he wishes for, before he finds himself being burned at the stake, on his way to his master, the Devil.
No, it's vintage Pfleger. What would be shocking is seeing the "reverend" preach even one sermon without insulting God, America, or conservatives. It'd be unprecedented.
Gee wasn’t this guy just honored by the Cardinal of Chicago?
And by extension the entire Catholic Church including the Pope.
Fr Phleger is clearly guilty of hate crime and inciting murder.
Should I assume that after 500 years, they are again calling for my murder because of what I believe. It’s not my religious views this time, rather my political views.....
“Gee, wasnt this guy just honored by the Cardinal of Chicago?”
Yes, he was. Father Pleger truly ought to be, at the minimum, defrocked for his comments.
Just gotta love them Roman Catholics. True to form. 0.5 ONLY/s
nobody anticipated that an address by a Chicago priest would include a call for the murder...
Never ever happened in Roman history, right? What a sweet, lovely, self-appointed and poisonous Bride of Christ is overweening over-righteous Rome. (Not alone, I might add.)
But I have no doubt, and hope and pray, that many Romans --and others-- will find their way through the narrow gate to Heaven, regardless of the sins of their church. May He bless the seekers, whatever their origin.
Lest we forget this dirt bag was a close friend and confidant of the chosen one. Obama spent countless hours with this man developing his lifes values.
Oh, they did more than that. Related threads:

Thank you for the links.
All I can say is “insane”.
Ya just can’t make stuff like this up!
He will almost certainly be defrocked within the next few years if his actions continue and become known to his superiors.
