'Snuffy' Pfleger Fails

You know that a person's 'jumped the shark' when they believe that a plastic water gun in the shape of a fish will lead to a life of crime.
That's the latest crusade by wingnut Father 'Snuffy' Phleger of St. Sabina's church in Chicago. Noone else is paying attention to him so maybe if gets completely ridiculous, he can get his name in the paper again.

Here's the truth behind it:
The Kmart baskets were brought to his attention by community members, Pfleger said, the same week that saw several shootings citywide and a 22-year-old shot and killed in the middle of the day in the White Castle’s parking lot in Auburn-Gresham
Note that the 'community members' aren't bringing the names of the shooters, drug-dealers, gang-bangers and other criminals in the community. It's much safer for them to 'crusade' against toys than real violence.

Not just shark jumping, but also shark jacking.

Someone bearing weapons on consecrated ground is just another demonstration of why Chicago needs to be cleansed with fire. Admittedly, as a Saint Louisan currently living in the Free State of Arizona, I must admit the possibility of a touch of bias against the Lake Michigan Metropolitan Mistake.... ;-)
