BISHOP GEORGE PACKARD - OVER THE FENCE



From Mother Jones:
After Bishop Packard tumbled over the fence, he climbed onto a wooden bench and waved for the crowd to follow. Other priests mounted the ladder while the the crowd yanked up the base of the fence to make a large opening. Someone cut the lock on a gate, and dozens of people streamed inside, talking, dancing to rap music from a boom box, and urging the rest of the crowd to join them. But the party couldn't last. The police, taken off guard at first, came pouring through the gate with flex cuffs and arrested everyone who didn't flee, including Packard. I personally witnessed about a half dozen arrests in progress, but the final tally will probably be higher.
God bless Bishop Packard! What a mensch!

Mass arrests of Occupiers.



Pray for those who were arrested. Pray for the police.

  2. I'd seen a tweet that the bishop was first, but I hesitated to post the news. Here's the proof.

  3. THIS IS THE COOLEST (LITERALLY) OF THEM ALL -- I´M SO PROUD OF BISHOP PACKARD AND SO TIRED OF THE PRESIDING BISHOP AND HER CONTINOUS NEED TO WARN EVERYONE TO REMAIN IN CRUCIFIED PLACES (OR ELSE, GULP, YE MIGHT GET YOUR MITRE SQUISHED)--ENOUGH ALREADY -- GO DO SOMETHING KJS ¨HANDS ON¨ AND CLIMB DOWN FROM YOUR NYC SAFETOWER!

  4. Prudent sucks! Jesus wasn´t prudent (and neither is the God of my understanding who´s apparently quite tired of the selfrighteous greedsters, bigots, exploiters and theives running society and our common humanity amuck)! Sorry, got a little hot there (it always happens when I drink a Diet Coke)!
