Former SBC lunatic prays for Obama's death

A right-wing, religious nutjob uses a holy book to justify his beliefs that someone should die.


Former Southern Baptist Convention officer, Wiley Drake, has stated in an interview with Alan Colmes that he is praying for the death of President Obama. During the interview, Drake said that his prayers were answered that George Tiller was killed, after which he turned his hatred to President Obama. From the Associated Baptist Press we read:
"Imprecatory prayer is agreeing with God, and if people don't like that, they need to talk to God," Drake told syndicated talk-show host Alan Colmes. "God said it, I didn't. I was just agreeing with God."

Asked if there are others for whom Drake is praying "imprecatory prayer," Drake hesitated before answering that there are several. "The usurper that is in the White House is one, B. Hussein Obama," he said.

Later in the interview, Colmes returned to Drake's answer to make sure he heard him right.

"Are you praying for his death?" Colmes asked.

"Yes," Drake replied.

"So you're praying for the death of the president of the United States?"


Colmes asked Drake if he was concerned that by saying that he might be placed on a Secret Service or FBI watch list, and if he believed it appropriate to talk or pray that way.
"I think it's appropriate to pray the Word of God," Drake said. "I'm not saying anything. What I am doing is repeating what God is saying, and if that puts me on somebody's list, then I'll just have to be on their list."

"You would like for the president of the United States to die?" Colmes asked once more.

"If he does not turn to God and does not turn his life around, I am asking God to enforce imprecatory prayers that are throughout the Scripture that would cause him death, that's correct."

First of all, imprecatory prayer isn't agreeing with God - it's wishing evil upon someone, or cursing them. There are several Hebrew words that are synonymous with the word “imprecate,” each one in some sense or another meaning, “to curse.” This lunatic thinks that God's on his side because George Tiller died. Since this piece of trash knows so little about the Bible, once again I have to inform the "Christian" leadership in this country about what the Bible says.

Hey, Wiley - pay attention!

Ephesians 6:12 - "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

President Obama is a man - flesh and blood. Therefore, your battle isn't against him.

By the way, Wiley, I doubt you knew this because your seething rage and hatred blinds you to reality, but this is what the Bible says about people in positions of authority and heads of state:

Daniel 2:21 - "And he [God] changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:"

Daniel 4:17 - "This decision is by the decree of the watchers, and the sentence by the word of the holy ones, In order that the living may know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, gives it to whomever He will, and sets over it the lowest of men."

Daniel 5:21 - "And he was driven from the sons of men; and his heart was made like the beasts, and his dwelling was with the wild asses: they fed him with grass like oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven; till he knew that the most high God ruled in the kingdom of men, and that he appointeth over it whomsoever he will."

John 19:10-11 - "Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee? Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin."

Romans 13:1 - "Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God."

1 Peter 2:13-17 - "Therefore submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake, whether to the king as supreme, or to governors, as to those who are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and for the praise of those who do good. For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men— as free, yet not using liberty as a cloak for vice, but as bondservants of God. Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king."

And this is what Jesus had to say about those who hate:

Matthew 5:21-22 - "Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire."

So, since you're supposed to be God's ambassador to the human race, Wiley, who are you to question his authority and decision-making?
