Chicago priest who burned gay flag removed from Avondale parish

Father Paul Kalchik 

CHICAGO -- A Chicago priest who burned a gay flag has been removed from his parish in Avondale.

Cardinal Blase Cupich had warned Father Paul Kalchik not to burn the flag.

He did it anyway, and recited a prayer of exorcism.

The Archdiocese released a letter saying that "Father Kalchik needs to take time away from the parish to receive pastoral support."
