Pastor Admits to Praying for President Obama's Death

Conservative pastor Wiley Drake has admitted praying for the death of Barack Obama. This is the pastor of the Buena Park Southern Baptist Church, taking a decidedly un-Christian point of view.

Here's what he said to Alan Colmes:
Alan Colmes: “So you’re praying for the death of the president of the United States?”

Wiley Drake:
“Yes.”

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

Drake: “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.”
Listen:
He also caught the attention of Keith Olbermann, who named him the "World's Worst Person" today.

Drake is the same pastor who posited that God would strike down Rick Warren for daring to speak at President Obama’s inauguration.

Man! What is it with this guy?!Is he aware of of a passage in the Bible that tells us believers to pray for our leaders for wisdom and also for God to bless them?!This man does not have the love of Christ in him,and he does not reflect how most believers are.Could you please start reporting on the positive respects of our faith,or anyone else's faith.Thank you.

Just more megalomania. Religion was invented by man to control the masses. Fundamentalists believe that ultimately God will throw unbelievers unto a lake of fire. Nice way of saying I want you dead because that's your punishment for not thinking as I do. The excuse is that god's doing the thinking. Oh, right. They in effect sell "believers" the story that their god is a perfectly justified murderous megalomaniac, when actually the narcissistic would-be murderer is their own pastor, and then the flock when they imitate him. Fundamentalists haven't the courage to face their own ego problems directly, so they slip into fantasy and delegate the dirty work to their god. Such irresponsible pastors sometimes inspire murder by members of the flock, who are led to imagine that murder in "god's name" is okay. Why be surprised? And people wonder why we notice that man creates god in his own murderous or humane image, whichever type of religion the pastor is pushing.
The same motivation inspired witch burnings and the Inquisition.
Pretty backward. One possible solution would be to clean up your own act, then you will probably prefer and envision a god who has also cleaned up his narcissistic personality disorder and the delusions of grandeur that go with it. If you want to think like a sociopath, that's your problem, however that thinking will transfer to your flock, which will make you an instigator of sociopathic thinking and behavior on their part. See a psychiatrist if you can't figure out how to clean up on your own. Society will certainly appreciate the favor.
