Snuffy snuffed?

It seems the Chicago Archdiocese has finally had enough of Fr. Michael “Snuffy” Pfleger’s vile, venomous vitriol, and will be removing him, at least for the moment, from St. Sabina.

CBS 2 News has learned that Francis Cardinal George is temporarily removing Father Michael Pfleger from his position as pastor of St. Sabina Roman Catholic Church on Chicago’s South Side.

A temporary move is unlikely to accomplish much. Snuffy has been rebuked before, to very little effect.

Then again, this move may not be so “temporary,” after all:

Indications are that another Chicago priest would take over at St. Sabina, while plans for the permanent reassignment of Father Pfleger, who’s been there far longer than is customary in the archdiocese, would be accelerated.

It’s about time.

    If it’s temporary, I’m sure he’s staying in Chicago. If he were permanently leaving, where would you want them to send him?

    To tell you the truth, I can’t really think of anywhere on which I would want to inflict him.

    Schadenfreude is admittedly not particularly admirable, but I can’t help deriving satisfaction from the idea of that rabid bile spewer being cut down a few notches. Hell–maybe it will even teach him some humility ;-).

    Either a remote monastery, preferably one in Siberia, or a parish in the heart of Africa, or some remote south American village.
