Catholic Priest Who Prayed and Performed Exorcism at US Capitol on Jan. 6 Faces Expulsion

A Nebraska Catholic priest who prayed at the US Capitol on January 6 faces expulsion from the church.

Father David Fulton told a videographer on January 6 that he performed an exorcism on the US Capitol.
Father Fulton walked inside the US Capitol during the demonstrations.

Archbishop George Lucas said Father Fulton’s actions were a “misuse of priestly ministry.”

Newsmax reported:

A Roman Catholic priest from Nebraska has angered his bishop for appearing at the Jan. 6 rally in support of then-President Donald Trump in his clerical collar and claiming he performed an exorcism at the U.S. Capitol.

The Rev. David Fulton, identified by the Omaha World-Herald as a pastor at St. Michael Parish in Central City, Nebraska, and St. Peter Catholic Church in Fullerton, Nebraska, appeared in a nearly 10-minute video titled “Voices from the Capitol Insurrection.”

Fulton appears in the video on the street with the Capitol in the background speaking to the camera confirming he performed an exorcism on the seat of Congress, because a demon is “dissolving the country.’

“Yes, I did,” Fulton said about performing the exorcism. “We’ll see, we’ll see what effect …”

And now Father Fulton faces expulsion from the priesthood after his actions.
