Pfleger: “America is the greatest sin against God;” new “statement” to come?

More video of Rev. Michael “Vanilla Ice” Pfleger’s race-baiting sermon last week at Trinity United Church of Christ has emerged on YouTube. Boy, was he on a roll. If you thought his bug-eyed, Jeremiah Wright wannabe mimickry of Hillary Clinton’s “white entitlement” was over the top, you’ll love the new excerpts in which Pfleger inveighs that “America is the greatest sin against God.” (“God damn America” was already taken, of course.)

My question is: What will it take for the Catholic Church to cut themselves loose of this racial huckster? “Have the balls” to fire him already. (See also Catholics against Pfleger.)

(Hat tip – HA headlines. More here.)

Pfleger is complaining about “ugly” rhetoric–and is promising to make a statement today. Chutzpah:

The Rev. Michael Pfleger, who helped reignite Barack Obama’s pastor problems by mocking Hillary Clinton, said this evening he’s received “thousands of hate threats” since his videotaped pulpit rant.

“They want to kill me,” Pfleger told parishioners during a service in a St. Sabina Church chapel on Chicago’s South Side this evening. “It’s been very ugly.”

In his brief comments this evening, Pfleger did not name any candidates, and said he would address the controversy at a Sunday mass at St. Sabina.

“I’m not going to make a statement,” Pfleger told the crowded chapel. “My real statement will be tomorrow.”

But he did say it’s been a difficult week filled with an unspecified surgery on Tuesday and a deluge of threats.

“It’s a very difficult situation,” he said. “I’ve received thousands of hate threats.”

He did not offer any specifics from the pulpit, and declined through an aide to comment further. That included declining a specific request by the Sun-Times for a comment on Obama’s decision to leave Trinity church.

Meanwhile: The Axelrod-Pfleger connection.

Obama, for his part, continues to rely on his apologist talking point about how all of his men of bad faith are being quoted out of context.

In what context does “America is the greatest sin against God” not sound like the demagogic spewing that it is?

James Lewis at the American Thinker presses the Catholic Church:

Father Pfleger brings public scandal to the Church. He clearly and obviously, on videotape, preaches racial hatred. He does so with plenty of prior rehearsal and maybe coaching, in order to sound just like race-baiting ole’ Reverend Wright, who has apparently been conducting a school for race baiters over at Trinity United. The Democrat Party of Chicago, Louis Farrakhan, the whole den of thieves of the Illinois Democrat Machine has obviously known about this for decades. The radical Left and ACORN (Obama’s “community organizing” radicals) must have known all about it. The Obamas were up to their necks in guilty knowledge. The Clintons knew. Everybody knew…

…Does the Catholic Church recognize any responsibility to deal with Father Pfleger? Do the words of Vatican II mean anything in practice?
