This purported priest, guest speaker at Barack Obama's former church in Chicago, mouthed many, if not all, of the offensive statements frequently credited to Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

First question: What is a Catholic priest doing participating in a non-Catholic worship service? We, the faithful, are forbidden to do so, how is a priest any different?

Second question: Why is the Diocese of Chicago not reining in this hoss of peculiar mindset in expeditious fashion?

To that end, I have written a letter requesting illumination from the Diocese of Chicago. Here is the address, should you'd like to do so as well - always remember to be respectful and non-combative in your tone as much as possible (although I must admit to calling the Rev. Phleger a jerk):

Very Rev. John Canary
Vicar General Archdiocese of Chicago
155 E. Superior Street
Chicago, IL 60611

FOR THE RECORD: As I do not accept Hagee's apology, neither do I accept or believe that of Rev. Phleger. You cannot unring a bell and you cannot unsay vicious and provoking words! As to Barack Hussein Obama now resigning his membership - does anyone with a functioning brain cell believe this was anything other than a purely political, utterly cynical ploy?

Yeah, me neither.

UPDATE 6/4/08: The Cardinal Archbishop of Chicago has ordered Rev. Phleger suspended pending investigation and further notice.
