Rev. Patrick Mahoney arrested in front of White House
Charisma News Online first reported on Rev. Patrick Mahoney’s plans to hold a peaceful demonstration in front of the White House today. Mahoney went through with his plans and, as expected, was arrested in front of the White House Tuesday morning, reports Charisma News Online.
Mahoney was calling upon President Obama to “publicly, passionately and boldly speak out against the human and religious rights abuses by the Chinese government against their own people” when President Hu Jintao visits the White House on Wednesday.
Before he was arrested, Mahoney brought to the sidewalk in front of the White House a single chair, a picture of Nobel Prize Laureate Liu Xiaobo, and a picture of a Christian woman who was brutally beaten by the Chinese government.
