The always fiery Fr. Michael Pfleger tweeted last week that everyone should be praying for a conviction in the case. Notice he didn’t pray for justice. He prayed for a conviction.
Today, in an interview with a Chicago news station, he called for civil disobedience. And just in case you didn’t think he was attempting to add gas to the fire, Fr. Pfleger said Trayvon Martin is the new Emmett Till. Till was an African-American boy who was murdered in Mississippi at the age of 14 after reportedly flirting with a white woman.
Fr. Pfleger has no shame. And when someone gets hurt or killed because of his needless Molotov rhetoric, he’ll run to the nearest camera again saying we need to understand the violence or some such nonsense. You see, it doesn’t matter to Fr. Pfleger what he’s saying or what happens after he says it. As long as those microphones keep being shoved in his face, he’s happy.
