Thanks to Julie over at A Nun’s Life for bringing this to our attention, and to Annie for prodding me to have a look. The nun who was arrested is a fellow Sister of St. Joseph. And just to be clear, the action these protesters took was in keeping with the principles of nonviolent civil disobedience. So here’s yet another nun I look up to. Thanks, Sr. Betty! Here’s an excerpt followed by a link to the article:
Police in riot gear arrested two women in their 70s and seven others taking part in an antiwar march at the Republican National Convention on Sunday after they crossed a security fence into a restricted area near Xcel Energy Center.
