The Catholic priest who mocked Hillary Rodham Clinton has returned to his Chicago parish after a nearly two-week suspension. The Reverend Michael Pfleger told a cheering congregation today at St. Sabina church he will not let his faults make him "play it safe or become silent."

Cardinal Francis George suspended Pfleger this month after the priest mocked Clinton while preaching at the church Barack Obama belonged to at the time.

Pfleger pretended during the sermon that he was Clinton crying over "a black man stealing my show."

Ushers at St. Sabina handed out fliers today with a silhouette of boxer Muhammad Ali and the words "Ain't nothing like a comeback."
