Obama’s Crackpot Spiritual Advisor Apologizes After Being Caught Up in Flag Flap
Obama’s spiritual mentor is under fire this week after flying the “Chi-Raq” race flag above the US flag at his parish St. Sabina.
Father Michael Pfleger is apologizing after the “Chi-Raq” flag was briefly flying higher than the American flag outside his South Side church.
Pfleger says he decided two days ago to lower to American flag outside St. Sabina to half-staff to mark the violence in Chicago. But he forgot the “Chi-Raq” flag was still flying high.
He asked a maintenance worker to remove the flag Thursday morning, but not before receiving a number of angry phone calls and emails.
“Why didn’t I get tons of calls about violence? Why didn’t I get a number of emails about the horrible murders going on in Chicago? We’re more concerned about a position of a flag than bodies lying in our streets,” Pfleger said.
