Rezko, Wright, Ayers, and now Pfleger. Who's next, and how long can he keep "distancing" from his idiot supporters?
Obama said he was "deeply disappointed" by Pfleger's comments.I guess it's a good thing for Obama that most of America isn't judging him by the friends he keeps.
"As I have traveled this country, I've been impressed not by what divides us, but by all that that unites us," he said in a statement. "That is why I am deeply disappointed in Father Pfleger's divisive, backward-looking rhetoric, which doesn't reflect the country I see or the desire of people across America to come together in common cause."

Pfleger's got a history of crossing the state/church line, and he's not shy about it...
Seen here at the War on Guns and Armed and Safe, Pfleger is yet another extremist. Here's one example:
During an address at an anti-gun rally in front of Chuck's, Rev. Michael Pfleger, pastor of St. Sabina's Church, exhorted the crowd to "drag" shop owner, John Riggio, from his shop "like a rat" and "snuff" him. Rev. Pfleger went on to tell the crowd that legislators that vote against gun control legislation should be "snuffed" as well. As many know, "snuff" is slang for especially violent murder.Audio of that here.
And then there's the money, $225,000 in grants to Pfleger's programs received after donating to Obama.
Update: this is the second time the Archdiocese of Chicago has condemned statements from Pfleger. The first involved the death threat quoted above. Google it.
