Chicago priest apologizes for saying women should join clergy, priests should be allowed wives

A Catholic priest in Chicago who made headlines when he mocked Hillary Clinton during her presidential campaign is apologizing for a sermon in which he said priests should be allowed to marry and women should be allowed to become priests.
In a statement posted Wednesday on the Archdiocese of Chicago's Web site, the Rev. Michael Pfleger says he was expressing his personal opinion, but that he respects and follows the teachings of the church, according to Fox News.
Pflegr is a popular pastor of a church on the city's southside, according to MSNBC.
He is a longtime activist who has protested everything from the Supreme Court's decision to strike down Washington's handgun ban to Jerry Springer's television show.
