WTTW hosted a panel on Catholicism, Fr. Pfleger, and the beatification of John Paul II last night.

There as per usual we had the usually lopsided structure of two liberal Catholics…knowing and having interviewed both adversaries I would judge Barbara Blaine is more nominal than active… against one.
Both belong to the Catholic Left. Robert McClory is a teacher, journalist and resigned priest who’s written a laudatory book about Pfleger. McClory…a former assistant at St. Sabina’s pre-Pfleger who left the priesthood to marry… has in the course of thirty …

Two things puzzle me about the heated and heartfelt opposition to the removal of Rev. Michael Pfleger as the pastor of St. Sabina’s: How can one man get so passionately attached to his job that he thinks his parishioners can’t get along without him?
