They probably do not even believe in the efficacy of holy water...

Fine, if the woman wants to be arrested to make a point - but it isn't much different than what so-called dissident nuns do when they trespass at the US Army School of Americas protests. Really, it's not. Oddly enough - they are both pro-life acts of protest too.
