Priest who mocked Clinton stands by message

The Roman Catholic priest who mocked Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton at Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama’s former church says he regrets that his passionate delivery may have detracted from his message. But he stands by the message.

“I was giving a talk about race. And is entitlement one of the things about race that I believe in? Is an unequal playing field one of the things I believe in? Yes, so I don’t apologize for being passionate, I don’t apologize for being free,” Pfleger told ABC’s “Good Morning America” in an interview aired Thursday.
