For oft-arrested priest, social justice calling carries a priceOn May 17, two anti-drone activists accepted the open invitation to the public and attended an open house at Volk Field, a military facility near Fort Douglas, Wisconsin, that trains soldiers to "pilot" Shadow drones. They were both arrested when in the middle of the tour they attempted to hand out leaflets encouraging readers to examine their attitudes about the use of drones in war and intelligence gathering. Father Jim Murphy, one of the arrestees, views his activism as an important part of his religion. “Faith is not just about getting to heaven,” Murphy said. “It’s also about transforming our world.” The Wisconsin State Journal, 6/29/14. Jim Murphy and Bonnie Block, the other arrestee, are members of the Wisconsin Coalition to Ground the Drones and End the Wars, a WNPJ member group.
