Pro-choicer assaulst pro-life priest with water hose

A priest is considering pressing charges against an angry woman who drove him away from a public sidewalk during a pro-life demonstration with a jet of water from her garden hose.

“Her husband turned on the hose, and she sprayed it on me,” Father Ron Meyer told LifeSiteNews.com.

“As pro-life people we put Jesus’ message of love and forgiveness into practice,” he said. “But maybe there is a time to push back, so that [abortion activists] realize they can’t do whatever they want to us and get away with it.”

Fr. Meyer, who is pastor of Our Lady of Lourdes parish in Cardiff, Ontario, was participating in a Show the Truth campaign on Thursday in Peterborough along Chemong road. The pro-life strategy aims at showing the truth of abortion to the Canadian public through the use of large graphic images.

As Fr. Meyer was peacefully holding his sign on the sidewalk in front of a residential house, with his sign facing the busy road, a woman exited the house demanding that the priest turn his sign away.

Fr. Meyer obliged, angling his sign away from the residence. But the woman was not satisfied.

Amateur video of the event shows Fr. Meyer walking away from the woman as she drenched him with the garden hose. At one point the priest can be seen turning his sign towards the woman as a shield against the deluge.

The woman can be heard shouting, “You know what’s unnecessary, is showing my kids those pictures.”

“She only did one side of me. The other side was still kinda hot,” Fr. Meyer joked. “Maybe I should’ve stayed there longer and gotten more of a soaking.”

Fr. Meyer said the soaking was not exactly “an expression of charity or thoughtfulness.”

“She was expressing her animosity towards what I am doing as a pro-life individual,” he said.
