It's a statement from Fr. Pfleger, and it reads:
On Sunday, April 11, while preaching a sermon on the power of fear, I was referring to the fear that paralyzed the apostles, locking them in a room, leaving only John and the women at the foot of the cross. I stated that is why I believe women ought to be able to be ordained, as well as priests ought to be able to get married.Not much of an apology, IMHO. Nor is it a retraction of statements made in his homily. Seems to me he's only sorry that his 'personal opinions' were broadcast across the Internet, and not for the fact that his 'opinions' are contrary to Church teaching. Thoughts?
While this is my personal opinion, I do respect and follow the Catholic Church teachings and I am sorry I failed to do this.
