A Leg up on the FBI

It happened on Block Island, RI years ago on the driveway of William (“Bill”) Stringfellow and Anthony Towne’s home, the temporary home of fugitive war protester Father Daniel Berrigan, S.J.ap_7307250162_271648b88100da8bfbf05ff0fe92116d-nbcnews-ux-2880-1000

As the FBI loaded Dan into the back  of the squad car, Marmaduke, the canine member of the household, walked to the passenger side of the vehicle, and – as if on behalf of Bill and Anthony and all things just – lifted his left leg on the front passenger side tire.

“It was,” said Bill, a theologian as well as Father Berrigan’s lawyer, “an act of God.”

  1. Excellent. This is scary, though. Herr Drumpf’s disregard for laws seems to be spreading to the FBI, and that is ** very** scary indeed. Great image though. Huge kudos to Marmaduke; I’m certain he is in animal heaven, or in heaven with his family. That gesture alone woul be a deed sufficiently good to open the gates of paradise. 😉
