A scene from the White House yesterday to protest the continuing persecution of gay servicemembers, now championed by Senator John McCain. 13 were arrested, including Dan Choi. And they say this isn't a civil rights movement. More gripping photos here.

I'm moved by the fact that a Catholic priest joined the protest, as all Catholics who follow the teachings of Jesus rather than the cramped doctrines of the hierarchy should:


That's "Father Geoff Farrow, a Catholic priest who spoke out against the church’s official stance in support of California’s Proposition 8, removing the rights of same-sex couples to marry."
