Here’s the Father Pfleger endorsement that was featured on Obama campaign site (has since been scrubbed):
CHICAGO (AP) — Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan has high praise for a Chicago activist priest.
Farrakhan says the Rev. Michael Pfleger has been a stronger advocate of justice “than most black preachers in Chicago.”
Pfleger is a white priest who runs a largely black church, St. Sabina Catholic Church on the city’s South Side. Pfleger has made racial equality a cornerstone of his work. A mural of a black Jesus is behind the altar in his church and his adopted sons are black.
Farrakhan spoke Sunday before thousands of followers at the Chicago-based Nation of Islam’s annual Saviours’ Day convention and Pfleger was in attendance.
