Occupy Wall Street Folk Hero “The Praying Man” Exposed!

Saint Ollie Oyl of Zucotti


A man who was arrested last week for praying in a city street during the OWS protest and whom Occupy Wall Street protesters have dubbed, “The Praying Man” is actually wanted on an arrest warrant in Indiana for sunbathing completely nude while marinating in olive oil.  I kid you not.  The Smoking Gun has the story here.

Here is the hilarious video  of the OWS folk hero, “The Praying Man”  (note the music) along with the commentary listed.


On the morning of Friday, Oct 14th, 2011 among the thousands who showed up to
defend the park from Bloomberg’s threats to evict the occupation during a “park
cleaning”, one man stood out. Police used motorbikes in an attempt to push
people off the street but this man got on his knees and began to pray, blocking
the path of all the bikes in the process. Police arrested him, and though many
protesters asked for his name, he never spoke. Did anyone get his name?
