HUNTSVILLE, January 16, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) An elderly woman was handcuffed and charged with misdemeanor harassment after spraying holy water outside a Huntsville abortion facility.
Joyce Fecteau, who is in her seventies, was arrested after pro-abortion counter protestors complained after coming into contact with holy water from the spray bottle she was carrying.
Pro-abortion demonstrator Lisa Cox accused Fecteau of spraying her in the face with an unknown substance. She claims the incident occurred December 22 on the sidewalk outside the Alabama Women's Center for Reproductive Alternatives abortion clinic.
As a result of Coxs allegations, Fecteau was arrested outside the same clinic January 9 and charged with misdemeanor harassment. Video of the arrest shows the elderly Fecteau being escorted away from the abortion center by a Huntsville police officer as she continues to pray.

I guess this is a criminal use of Holy Water.
Good thing it wasn’t raining from the heavens.
Did they know it was Holy Water because it burned them?
This is kinda funny. I can just see some people squirming after finding out they’ve come into contact with holy water.
I can understand their concern, there is a chance they will melt or die if they are touched by something, truly holy.
ROFL! Holy Water!
Holy Water used according to directions.
It must be true what they say about it.
How would anyone know it was holy water and not acid or something gross?
Spray someone in the face with anything, even water - that’s assault.
"Help me I'm melting, I'm melting..."
The fate of wicked witches and abortion clinic workers...
if it really has an effect on these people it should work outside of their work area as well ~ maybe we should start telling them that all the RTL folks are literally drenched in holy water ~ and magic lines have been drawn around the abortion mills in holy water ~ etc.
There are endless possibilities.
Too bad it was not VX.
It's long been noted that the USSC in Roe v. actually legalized the practices of ROOT WORKERS so we should not be surprised to find such people still involved in the business ~
When something happens where a pro-lifer is falsely accused, these security videos somehow inadvertently get destroyed.
Who do you believe: a 70+ woman PRAYING to save babies or someone who dedicates their life to help kill BABIES?
According the Bible, Jesus said that "You will know a tree by its fruit -- a good tree produces good fruit, a bad tree produces bad fruit."
I believe there is great merit in what Jesus said...
Outlaw “assault spray bottles” that carry more than ten shots of liquid in their magazines.
The priest responded: "You don't need holy water to put out the fire."
The response of the locals was that fire was from black magic, and nothing was being burned by the fire.
I believe they had to use holy water to put out the fire (generated by black magic).
Then... writhing, screaming, wildly contorting, pulsating and finally melting.
Let us spray
Probably caused burns on the doctors and staff.
It’s not a matter of believing someone, it’s a matter of someone throwing an unknown liquid in your face. Did she announce that it was holy water?
It probably burned like hell.
It BURNS us!
Seriously, no one believes any RTL folks would spray a noxious substance on the abortion crowd. Doesn't mean they don't look forward to the time those same abortion folks get tossed into the everlasting lake of fire, or into outer darkness, whichever comes first.
I gotta agree with you, even though I have visions of the wicked witch of the west melting at the touch of water.
There were people who sprayed pro-lifers with urine (or at least that’s what it looked like in the spray bottles) during Operation Rescue protests outside abortion clinics.
If you are representing Christ and trying to be a witness for Him, there is no need to use the enemies methods when praying at an abortion clinic.
Watters said the noxious material" mentioned by Fecteau was a smudge stick a bundle of sage and other dried herbs frequently used in New Age, Pagan and Shamanist rituals. She said her group tries to make sure women get inside the abortion center with as little harassment as possible.
According to that testimony by the lil' ol' lady, she was trying to get the "offending smell of the smoke of the incense" neutralized.
If someone would light up a cigarette and blow the smoke in my face, I would be deeply offended.
In a sense, the woman was using the water to "defend herself from the foul smell of the burning CR@P" used by the PAGANS.
In the 1990's, there was an abortion mill in New Orleans where everyone who worked at it was a witch (aka, they practiced witchcraft).
So those practicing the occult, doing drugs, and other foul practices are common in abortion clinics.
In Norma McCorvey's 1994 book Won by Love, she explained of how common drugs and strange religions were in abortion clinics...
She claims she was not spraying the water at anyone but in response to the effects of the smoke.
Thank God she didn’t do it at an elementary school...
I’d have to hear and see Obama stand behind little children and ban Holy water....
At least they didn’t send out a HazMat team afterwards.
What is “Holy Water”?
(This thread went right over my head *sigh)
The defense will argue that spraying Holy Water on someone is a form of religious expression and protected by the First Amendment.
Assault with a Holy weapon?
It is in the category of sacramentals used by the Catholic Church.
One of the more significant uses is in the sacrament of baptism, though holy water is not required.
I am not sure the origin -- if it dates back 2000 years or not...
The following article from the Catholic Encyclopedia is a good article to get some information:
Hey, folks in Bama take this holy water stuff pretty serious (I grew up there and swear this on a stack of Bibles). I will absolutely bet that the prosecutor tries very hard not to mention the word Holy Water in his summary with the judge. This would get on any judge’s mind and that of a jury.
Course, where did the Holy Water come from? How was it imported in Alabama? Was it registered with anyone? There will be some full investigation over stuff like this.
there’s no such thing as holy water.
Outlaw assault spray bottles that carry more than ten shots of liquid in their magazines.
Nadler says spray bottles should only spray 3 times then break or need to be refilled..
There is no such thing as a keyboard shift key.
“And the priest shall take holy water in an earthen vessel; and of the dust that is in the floor of the tabernacle the priest shall take, and put it into the water.”
Ask Satan that question. Also be reminded that in the Bible it is written that what the Church binds on earth is bound in heaven...
The pro-bort escorts were burning noxious voodoo herbs ... the anti-bort knew she would be harassed by the noxious acrid burning stuff and had the water spray to knock some of the smoke out of the air... I suspect the burning was done in the right spot to carry the smoke right at Mrs. Fecteau.
Watters said the noxious material” mentioned by Fecteau was a smudge stick a bundle of sage and other dried herbs frequently used in New Age, Pagan and Shamanist rituals.
The valley is so deep there are radio dead spots.
I watched the movie “The Rite” yesterday in which Anthony Hopkins portrays an exorcist. In telling a seminarian who was assisting him that the possessed hate holy items, he sprinkled some holy water on a possessed girl and she started hissing.
Only one policeman , and only used handcuffs, he must have been a big tough son of a gun
I can’t tell if [the holy water] drifted on this lady’s face.
Why was she spraying holy water around? din,t Jesus say not to cast your pearls before the swine? not that i am convinced that holy water is even holy.
At any rate, the murdered babies are in Gods hands.
Yes! I would deliver overnight packages in one place. Strange people. One wore a dagger medal around neck. Very strange things being felt.
you’re so clever.
You’re referring to Mosaic Law.
You’re so late.
