LONDON (ChurchMilitant.com) - A Catholic mother of five was arrested in Britain for alleged online hate crimes.

Police showed up Monday night at the Surrey home of Caroline Farrow and took her into custody — without a warrant — for alleged online harassment and malicious communications.

"I have been arrested for what was a Twitter spat about gender issues," the Catholic mother explained. "One minute I was making dinner for my kids and the next I was having my socks checked for drugs."

When police arrived to make the arrest, Farrow asked if they had a warrant. An officer said they didn't need one and "barged" into the house, Farrow said. They arrested Farrow in front of her husband and children on suspicion of "harassment and malicious communications."

A transsexual person reported Farrow's alleged harassment to police after reading Farrow's Twitter comments defending the Catholic position on transsexualism. The malicious-communications charge stems from several pro-biology memes Farrow posted on an alternative social media site.

A journalist, commentator and campaigner, Farrow has long been a bold promoter of Catholic principles. From 2011 to 2017, she was a member of media and evangelization outfit Catholic Voices, where she engaged in "the defense of Catholic teaching in the public square," she said. She has written for Catholic publications such as Catholic Herald and Crisis Magazine. She is married to Robin Farrow, a former Anglican priest who converted to Catholicism in 2010 and is now a Catholic priest. 

Farrow has been the recipient of many death threats and rape threats.

For her Catholic activism, Farrow has drawn heat in the past. In 2019, she faced malicious-communications charges for "misgendering" a boy who called himself "Jackie." Jackie's mother complained to police.

Farrow said she has been the recipient of many death threats and rape threats — even threats against her family — via social media.

She reported these threats to police, who told her they couldn't seize electronic devices to gather proof without a warrant. However, during this week's arrest, Farrow noted police told her it was necessary to arrest her in order to "seize" her electronic devices, and that they did not need a warrant to do so.

Police in the United Kingdom have faced growing criticism for their woke pandering to the trans agenda. Sussex police faced harsh blowback after catering to a convicted child-predator's pronoun preferences, including in their press statement. Sexual predator John Stephen Dixon was convicted earlier this year of 30 counts of indecent assault, dating to the 1980s and 1990s. Dixon now goes by the name "Sally Ann" and identifies as a woman.

In response to the woke nonsense, Home Secretary Suella Braverman urged police to stop "playing identity politics and denying biology." She insisted bobbies "focus on catching criminals, not policing pronouns."

She reports the charges she could be facing carry a penalty of two years in prison.

After the Dixon ordeal, #UntowardAboutPaedophiles began trending on Twitter, mocking police claims that criticizing pedophilia is a hate crime.

The chief executive of the College of Policing, the professional body for police in England and Wales, even lambasted woke policing policies. Chief Executive Andy Marsh insisted officers have "lost sight of the basics."

Since her arrest by the woke police, Farrow has been released pending investigation, with no charges filed yet. She reports potential charges could carry a penalty of two years in prison.
