I mentioned this guy a few days back when he was praying at the pump in San Francisco. Here he is now in Washington, DC, having burned a lot of fuel to get there no doubt. Perhaps it would just be cheaper to pray in his closet at home.
Americans have turned to prayer because the earthly powers-that-be don't seem to give a hoot, said Judy Dugan, a research director at Consumer Watchdog, a non-profit group based in California. She described Prayer at the Pump as "the ultimate Hail Mary."
At the Shell station, Twyman had dire words of warning for those who are raking in profits from high gas prices.
"Woe be unto those people that are really greedy and taking advantage of American families," he proclaimed from his pump pulpit.
"These prices will come down, just like the walls of Jericho came down in the Bible," he said, as another chorus of amens punctuated the sound of cash flowing out of the gas pumps.
