Twyman to Waters: Get Pope to Purge Capitol Hill

Pray at the Pump founder Rocky Twyman wants fellow demon-decrier Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., to formally join the cause and help him bring Pope Francis to Washington, D.C., for a full-scale exorcism of the Capitol.

Twyman was impressed by Waters’ fiery 2012 speech to the California Democratic Party convention, an off-the-cuff oratory in which she denounced Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., as “demons” and accused the GOP of dooming the entire country.

In his letter prodding her to procure an invite for Francis to the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Prayer Breakfast (Sept. 21), Twyman praises Waters for so brazenly speaking her mind then — and implores her not to hold her tongue now.

“The sequestration, upcoming debt ceiling fights and stubborn high unemployment are a result of spirits of evil spirits infiltrating Congress and the White House. The politicians have failed to heal these serious wounds and we now need divine intervention,” Twyman said.

A CBCF aide said the program for this year’s prayer meeting remains in flux, but noted that no sitting pope has attended previous gatherings.

Should Waters/the CBCF decline to play ball, Twyman told HOH he’s prepared to stake out Vatican City and drag the big guy back himself.

“We, the citizens, are helpless and very disappointed in our congressional representatives,” Twyman said. “There are demons everywhere.”

Waters’ office did not respond to queries regarding Twyman’s unorthodox request.
