Wither + Pariah?

Just say I have 2 Timber Protector out and I place Pariah on one of them.

Now someone attacks with a creature with wither and I decide not to block redirecting the damage that would be dealt to me to the creature with Pariah would it apply the -1/-1 counters or is it because the creature would be dealing damage to me that the Wither ability would not trigger?
Wither doesn't "trigger". If damage from a source with Wither is redirected to a creature, that damage results in -1/-1 counters - it doesn't matter where the damage was originally going to be dealt, only where it actually ends up. So yes, this can kill your Timber Protector even though it's indestructible.
Thanks for the reply, makes sense :D
