After another weekend of violence in the gun-control haven of Chicago an Obama supporting Catholic priest has made a statement that simply baffles the mind and defies all sense of reason.

The past few days have seen 3 dead and 12 wounded in the city tightly protected by gun control laws, and yet Rev. Pfleger decided to blame the NRA instead of his own politicians who stripped the law abiding of the ability to protect themselves.
According to WLS-TV Chicago, The Reverend stated that the NRA “will pay for the murder of our children.”
“I’m not a gun grabber, I’m a life lover,” the previously suspended priest said outside Chuck’s Gun Shop & Range. “And I love life more than the death that they are perpetrating.”
Forget blaming the gangs that are perpetrating the violence, Rev. Pfleger. Don’t even think about blaming the gun laws that only serve to make sure the criminals are the only ones with the guns. Just go after the NRA, which has done nothing but promote gun safety while anti-gunners preach total gun ignorance.
“I’m just tired, tired of the NRA,” he said. “Tired of them prostituting themselves and buying politicians in this country.”
According to BizPacReview,
Pfleger, a “long-time friend” of President Obama, according to the Chicago Tribune, makes Jeremiah Wright, the president’s former black liberation theology-preaching pastor, look moderate.
And the controversial preacher has come under fire in the past for threatening to “snuff” out the owner of the gun shop, John Riggio, according to CNS News.
“We’re going to find you and snuff you out,” he said in a 2008 protest outside the store. “You’re going to hide, but like a rat we’re going to catch you and pull you out.”
Comforting words from a Catholic priest…. who threatened the wrath of God against the NRA Saturday.
“At the end of the day you can argue with us [and] you can call us names, but you got to deal with God,” he said. “And the blood of our children is on your hands — and you will pay for the murder of our children.”
