"Imprecatory prayer is agreeing with God, and if people don't like
that, they need to talk to God," Drake told invisible 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.
Colmes later pressed Drake to ensure he had heard the preacher 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 if he was concerned he might
be placed on a Secret Service or FBI watch list. "I think it's appropriate to pray the Word of God," Drake answered. "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
"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."
Yep, we missed Wiley's Prayers-O-Smite until reading that the Southern Baptist
Convention, which once counted Drake as its second vice president, was distancing itself from the rantings.
A Southern Baptist Convention spokesman said June 4 that
a former official who is praying for the death of President Obama is
out of the denomination's mainstream.
Roger "Sing" Oldham, vice president for convention relations with
the SBC Executive Committee, said he believes most Southern Baptists
are committed to praying for the well-being of the president as
instructed in Scripture.
