Another preacher is making national headlines because of controversial remarks.
The Reverend Michael Pfleger, a Chicago community activist and priest, mocked Hillary Rodham Clinton's tears just before the New Hampshire Primary.
Pfleger made the comments during a sermon Sunday at Trinity United Church of Christ, formerly pastored by the Reverend Jeremiah Wright. Pfleger, a supporter of Barack Obama, says Clinton cried because she felt "entitled" to the Democratic nomination and that a "black man is stealing my show."
Obama issued a statement today saying he's "deeply disappointed" with Pfleger and that the priest used "divisive and backward-looking rhetoric."
Pfleger, who is white and pastors Chicago's predominantly-black Saint Sabina Roman Catholic Church, offered an apology today. He said his words were "inconsistent with Senator Obama's life and message."
