More Arrests at White House of DADT Protesters, Including My Friend Geoff Farrow

     This week, my friend Father Geoff Farrow was arrested for civil disobedience in Washington, DC, along with twelve other civil rights advocates, including Dan Choi.  They were protesting Don't Ask Don't Tell and the Obama administration's heel dragging in ending this hateful and discriminatory policy.  Here is a link to Geoff's blog and his reflections upon why he handcuffed himself to the White House's fence.

Thank you Geoff, for putting yourself out there to confront hatred.

There is something quite powerful about seeing a priest arrested for civil disobedience.

I take it your friend Geoff is one of those priests who not only talks the talk, but walks the walk. I respect that very much.
