We Catholics unfortunately do have our uber-liberal priests who engage in exceedingly un-Christian - not to mention idiotic - behaviour. Father Michael Pfleger, reportedly Obama's advisor on Catholic matters, recently gave a vitriolic anti-Hillary Clinton sermon at Obama's Trinity Church in Illinois. Catholic priests aren't supposed to do that sort of thing.
Locally, we have Fr. Ray Helmick, unwitting abetter to the local Muslim American Society, which is run by supremacist Qutubist Muslims who demand an oath of loyalty (bayah) from their specially chosen acolytes and reward them with money and spouses. Yes, wives and husbands are one of the rewards for loyal MAS members. MAS is only too happy to court non-Muslim liberals such as Fr. Helmick, as that helps them to expand and legitimize their organization, to dominate the leadership of the Muslim community, and to pursue their agenda of creating a "pure" Islamic society here in America. Sounds wacky, but there it is. They've planned their work in the U.S. and they're working their plan. And they've got help from liberal interfaith people (and politicians) who are clueless about Qutubism, Takfiri, and how the Muslim Brotherhood operates.
But I digress, back to Fr. Pfleger. America, the National Catholic Weekly, published a commentary on why Fr. Pfleger's sermon was against the Church's policies and beliefs. (This article was taken offline, for reasons unknown, but the cached version is available.) In a nutshell, there are three things wrong with Fr. Pfleger's sermon, in addition to the wack rhetoric. First, Catholic priests aren't supposed to be engaged in political activity, they're supposed to spreading the gospel and saving our immortal souls. Second, for churches to maintain their tax-exempt status, they need to be nonpartisan. No going around telling people who to vote for. Third - most importantly - it was a rude, mocking, uncharitable outburst. As the Anchoress noted, "I’ve never been slow to admit that the church survives by the grace of the Holy Spirit, because the running of it is all-too-flawed and imperfectly human."
"The Catholic Church does not endorse political candidates. Consequently, while a priest must speak to political issues that are also moral, he may not endorse candidates nor engage in partisan campaigning."
"Racial issues are both political and moral and are also highly charged. Words can be differently interpreted, but Fr. Pfleger’s remarks about Senator Clinton are both partisan and amount to a personal attack. I regret that deeply."
"To avoid months of turmoil in the church, Fr. Pfleger has promised me that he will not enter into campaigning, will not publicly mention any candidate by name and will abide by the discipline common to all Catholic priests."
