Cardinal George's Lifetime Achievement Award

I'd love to be a fly on the wall when Michael Voris finds out Cardinal George is giving a lifetime achievement award to Michael Pfleger, wouldn't you?

Yes, the Archdiocese of Chicago’s “Office of Racial Justice” is bestowing the demagogic Pfleger of the St. Sabina parish with a “lifetime achievement award” for his “service in pursuit of dismantling racism, injustice and inequalities on behalf of African Americans and all people of color” — and the Archbishop of Chicago himself, Cardinal George, is the official “presider.”
In June 2008, the racial cowards of the Chicago Archdiocese put Pfleger on a temporary leave to quell churchgoers’ outrage over Pfleger’s Hillary Clinton-mimicking, America-bashing, Vanilla Ice-prancing, Jeremiah Wright-impersonating, Louis Farrakhan-embracing cult leader. After laying low a measly few weeks to “reflect” on his outbursts, Pfleger returned triumphantly to the pulpit. And now, he’ll be feted by the Archbishop for his toxic tongue.

What makes this development so duplicitous is that Cardinal George sent a letter about Tom Roeser's Board of Directors asking them to muzzle his expositions of diocesan wizards.

Dear Mr ______,
           I write to you because you are a member of the Advisory Board of Catholic Citizens of Illinois whose chairman is Mr. Thomas F. Roeser. 
         Mr. Roeser has taken in recent years to writing essays that are filled with factual errors and misrepresentations about events in the Archdiocese of Chicago.  His writing about both clerical and lay officials of the Archdiocese are also personally insulting and filled with contempt.  At times when the Pope or the bishops’ teachings or activities do not conform in every detail to his political convictions, he descends to hate mongering. I’ve included a recent example for your consideration. 
         Would it be possible for you to use your role as advisor to Catholic Citizens of Illinois to put an end to the hate literature produced by the Chairman?  Thank you. [Emphasis mine]. 
                                                  Sincerely yours in Christ,
                                                 Francis Cardinal George OMI
                                                Archbishop of Chicago.

Is he kidding?
