I’m trying to modify someone else’s class. I am not the creator of
Foo::Bar, I just want to use their methods. This is actually for a
rails plugin I’m developing.

If you need to access it outside of an instance, why make it protected?
How are you using this?

Anyway, onto the solution:

def calling_protected_method
result = Foo::Bar.new.method(:bars_method).call
end
