I never heard of Rev. Michael Pfleger until tonight, but I sure love what he has to say to this pugnacious reporter from one of the major media outlets, who was trying to get this priest to denounce Rev. Wright. This seven minute video clip is worth your time. This man of God deflected the hate and turned the reporters own words on himself.
Fr. Pfleger reminds me of this quote from Oscar Romero.
A church that suffers no persecution but enjoys the privileges and support of the things of the earth – beware! – is not the true church of Jesus Christ. A preaching that does not point out sin is not the preaching of the gospel. A preaching that makes sinners feel good, so that they are secured in their sinful state, betrays the gospel’s call.
