Republican Alan Keyes once called Barack Obama an 'abomination'. So, it shouldn't surprise us that Keyes' one-time presidential running mate, Rev. Wiley Drake is now publically praying for President Obama to die. [SOURCE]
Drake, a former second vice president of the Southern Baptist Convention, told Fox News Radio earlier this month that he was practicing 'imprecatory prayer' (Imprecatory prayers basically are curses. They ask God to visit all sorts of bad things upon one's enemies. You find them in the Psalms, which is where Drake found the justification for his prayers) that would cause the president to die.
"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," Drake said in an interview with Fox’s Alan Colmes.
I wonder if this is the official position of other Baptist preachers in America? Is civility and goodwill so far lost in our nation that a so-called 'Man of God' can publically pray for the death of our president?
I encourage all villagers to join The Presidential Prayer Team if you want to focus your energy in a more positive direction.
