A burning shirt was left on the door of St. Sabina Church’s youth center on the South Side early Wednesday.

The Rev. Michael Pfleger – well-known for his anti-gun, anti-drug, anti-gang activism – said he didn’t know if the small fire was meant as a message.

The pastor said plastic bags of feces were previously tied to the doors of the main church building and nearby St. Sabina Academy.

“This time, it seems they stepped it up a notch with the fire,” said Pfleger, who was sleeping in the rectory when the police notified him about the fire, in the 7800 block of South Racine Avenue.

“If somebody is sending a message, so be it. We’re going to continue to send our message.”

Police are investigating the incident as an attempted arson.
