Father Pfleger removed from post

The Catholic priest who gave the rant against Hillary Clinton at Barack Obama's (ex)church has been removed from his duties by the local cardinal. The cardinal's message says that it is for a couple of weeks, but you've got to think that this might be the beginning of the end for Pfleger.

Pfleger has been at odds with the cardinal over a number of things, including his adoption of sons, a peculiar outreach program to prostitutes, inviting Al Sharpton (a pro-abortion person) to speak at his church, etc. But my guess is that the national publicity brought an unbearable amount of heat down and that the cardinal has had enough.
