Fr. Michael Pfleger apologized Thursday for recent remarks he made condoning marriage for priests and allowing females into the priesthood.

Fr. Pfleger made the remarks while preaching on Sunday.

The comments appeared online including video tape on YouTube.

In a written apology posted on the archdiocese Web site Thursday, Fr. Pfleger said he respects and follows the teachings of the Catholic Church and his comments failed to do that.
