If you remember the name 'Father Pfleger',

you'll just love this:
An armed security guard associated with staunch anti-gun and nationally known social activist, Father Michael Pfleger, was arrested on May 27 outside St. Sabina’s Roman Catholic Church on the South Side where Pfleger is a senior pastor. 

The Chicago Police (CPD) charged Henry Eugene Hale, 35, with possessing a firearm without a valid Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card. He was released on $150 bond.
Yep, another "We must ban guns(except for those protecting my precious ass)" clown on display.

And think some plain citizen arrested for the same would get out on that bond?  Fat effing chance.  And let's see if he's prosecuted the way a citizen not associated with a famous/rich/connected someone would be.

Ass-covering time:
Susan Thomas, a spokeswoman for the Archdiocese of Chicago, wrote in an email that "Fr. Pfleger does not have armed security and to our knowledge, neither does any other priest."
Except he's been spotted in public with armed security before.  So is she outright lying, or is this a 'Nobody told ME about such, so I know nothing!' routine?
