Pfleger Flag Flap

Activist priest draws attention to his fight to end gun violence

A South Side priest known for rocking the boat has done it again.

Rev. Michael Pfleger made a dramatic statement at a gun protest Tuesday night when he raised the Stars and Stripes upside down outside his church, St. Sabina's.

The U.S. flag code states that the flag should never be displayed upside down unless it's a signal of dire stress or extreme danger to life.

Exactly, Pfleger and his supporters say.

The activist and flamboyant priest says it's time for America to stop ignoring the numbers of kids killed by guns.
