Pfleger returns to St. Sabina

The Reverend Michael Pfleger, the Catholic priest who got in trouble for mocking Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, has returned to his Chicago parish after a nearly two-week suspension.

Pfleger told a cheering congregation at his South Side church Sunday that he will not let his faults make him "play it safe or become silent." Cardinal Francis George suspended Pfleger on June Third after the priest mocked Clinton while preaching from the pulpit of Senator Barack Obama’s former church, Trinity United Church of Christ. Obama has since resigned his membership to Trinity. Ushers at St. Sabina handed out fliers Sunday with a silhouette of boxer Muhammad Ali and the words, "Ain’t nothing like a comeback."
