“Catholic Church officials in the Windy City have forged unholy alliances with radical left-wingers and enablers who undermine the faith…”

Exhibit A: the Archdiocese of Chicago’s Office for Racial Justice and one of its most notorious priest, the Rev. Michael Pfleger.

This week, Chicago cardinal Francis George — who also is president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops — presided over a gala ceremony honoring Pfleger with a “lifetime-achievement award” for his “service in pursuit of dismantling racism, injustice, and inequalities on behalf of African Americans and all people of color.”

How, pray tell, has Pfleger achieved the officially sanctioned Catholic vision of “racial justice”? By aligning himself with the nation’s worst racial demagogues and using his pulpit at the St. Sabina Catholic Church on Chicago’s Southside to promote poisonous identity politics.

Pfleger (who is white) grabbed the spotlight during the 2008 presidential campaign with jive-talking defenses of his fellow race-hustler and President Obama’s spiritual mentor, the Rev. Jeremiah “‘God Damn America!’ and ‘AmeriKKKa!’” Wright, and Jew-bashing hate-monger Louis “Judaism Is a ‘Gutter Religion’” Farrakhan. The racial-justice award winner called the latter a “great man” and welcomed him to his church.

Pfleger, a member of the Catholics for Obama Committee, stoked further racial division by mocking Hillary Clinton’s skin color and accusing her of “white entitlement.” It’s one thing to ridicule Hillary’s sense of political and ideological entitlement as part of the Clinton dynasty. But the demagogic emphasis on her race was beyond the pale.
