Baptist Pastor Prays For The Death of President Obama

Wiley Drake, pastor of First Southern Baptist Church in Buena Park, California, has been asking his followers to pray for Barack Obama’s death and was given the chance to discuss this with Alan Colmes:

Colmes: …you then said, I asked for whom else are you praying in that fashion and you said President Obama. Are you praying for his death?

Drake: Yes.

Colmes: So you’re praying for the death of the president of the United States?

Drake: Yes. Are you concerned that by saying that you might find yourself on some secret service call or FBI most wanted list. Do you think it’s appropriate to say something like that or even pray for something like that?

Drake: I think it’s appropriate to pray for the will of God. I’m not saying anything, what I’m doing is repeating what God is saying, if that puts me on somebodies list then I’ll just have to be on their list.

Colmes: You would like for the president of the United States to die?

Drake: If he does not turn to God and does not turn his life around I am asking God to enforce in imprecatory prayers throughout the scripture that would cause him death, that’s correct.

You read that right — you see, he’s not PRAYING for Obama to die, he’s just repeating what God told him! So it’s like a game of telephone with a make believe outer-space deity, a crazy person, and the crazy persons disciplies! I’m not saying anything, what I’m doing is repeating what God is saying! And strangely enough, given the chance to backtrack on his statements, he refused and managed (if possible) to sound nuttier than before:

“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.”

If there’s one thing Jesus taught, it’s that God wants his followers to openly call for the death of people because they disagree on political issues. That, and don’t eat shrimp.

    The transcript has some of Alan Colmes’s words attributed to Drake: “Are you concerned that by saying that you might find yourself on some secret service call or FBI most wanted list. Do you think it’s appropriate to say something like that or even pray for something like that?”

    Pastors talk too much and this is one good example that will lead to the government shutting down some of the garbage that comes out of Pastors mouths. He is a red neck Pastor and needs to be beamed back to the slaves days so he can preach his gospel garbage. madden 08 cheats

    What a fool. I’m a born-again Christian, a member of a little Baptist church even, and I think this guy is completely insane. People like him give society good reason to hate Christians.

    I just hope people are smart enough to realize that we aren’t all like him, and that he sure doesn’t speak for all of us.

  6. I need to understand what you are saying? You are praying for the death of a leader – ? Did you pray for the death of the previous administration – I did not hear that – So between 1998 and 2004 – are you saing it was God’s will for the bankers, stock market, and the 401k programs to fail, the housing market to completely collaspe, did you pray for the death of the leaders over that mess> Oh, gas prices rose to uncommon numbers- did you pray for the leasers of the Oil companies to die ? Get a grip read the Bible you are preaching from? And go to Romans 13

  7. Ed says:

    This disgusts me. I’m a Christian, and I don’t support Obama, but I don’t pray for his death. This guy seriously needs to read his Bible more, and maybe he’ll run across the part where Jesus said to LOVE those you consider your enemies, and to pray for them as people, not their deaths.

    I consider myself a conservative, but I am by no means a right-winger. This guy, on the other hand, is way too far on the right. His type is the reason that people who aren’t Christians despise Christianity so much, ESPECIALLY in America. He preaches a God that is spiteful, hateful, and evil. If he would put his own political B.S. aside and actually study his Bible, he would find that God is just, righteous, and loving.

    what a horrible trasnscription…please try again.

    Like so many pious headline-suckers in the “christian” right, this one is dumb as paste, and mistakenly believes the temporary spotlight will fatten his resume. But it’s just as reprehensible that so few other supposedly loving-and-rational clergy are ever heard speaking out in opposition to crap like this.

    The recurring plaintive whimper “we’re not all like that” fixes nothing. It’s no wonder organized religion is being increasingly trashed or ignored.

    What a complete idiot! We finally have a President that is admired by the world, is trying to improve our economy (which remember fell into recession under Bush), and has a brain and a college degree to go with that brain.

    When non Christians read this kind of junk, they truly believe that we are the sinners.

    How can this man call him self a Christian much less a preacher? DISGUSTING,DISTURBING, HATEFUL, and just SICK! My Christian upbringing taught me that his kind of be behavior and hate is evil. And this country wonders why there is an marked up-tick in athiests

  13. drobie says:

    well he’s also just wrong because God’s will will be done whether he prays for it or not, but i also dont see how obama dying is God’s will

  14. Rationality! says:

    Hey Pastor,

    Look where the world is going these days… Religion is becoming a thing of the past and Obama is leading the change of an ever changing world. I pray that those still blinded by the misrepresentation of god come to their senses and realize we only have one life to live and to make it the best for everyone on Earth. So with the upmost respect… Real-a-fucking-lize whats real and going on with the world today and where the future is going!

    WWJD? Why, He would call for the death of the black president we don’t agree with! And yes, I think his color has something to do with this, whether the good pastor wants to admit it or not.

    Organized religion can go jump off a cliff; this pastor can lead the way.

    Be wary of all clergy! Organized religion has evolved (?) and become somewhat like gangs. What attracts someone to be a pastor? A huge ego helps. This is just an example of the strong undercurrent of many sects. The idiot Wiley was too stupid to present his ideas in a more digestible way, but underneath many sects message is just such hate and evil. May God give Wiley the worlds worst case of hemorrhoids, no the second worst, let the world’s worst case of hemorrhoids be visited on Osama binladen the Wiley.

  21. Phil in Orange County says:

    I have met Wiley Drake years ago and his sanity over time is waning. He should nevere use his position as a church clergy to preach a message of hatred and insanity and refer to the Bible as its basis. President Obama is a visionary that wants all Americans to be able to live the American dream. The Housing and financial markets collapse and a war on two fronts is a debt that he inhereited on Day One of his Administration.

  22. Sonja Jones says:

    I think this is a very sick man and very disturbing. I believe he is as sick as some people who cannot get over the fact that this man became President. The devil would have been accepted better than a black man.

  23. Sherry says:

    The pastor that is praying for the death of President Obama needs deliverance. He is under the power of a deception demond. I do not agree with how he define God Words in the Holy Bible and lie on the true and living God. We have already cancel any and all death prayers or threat to our President we pray the peace of God in his life and his family and God answers our prayer. We will continue to cancel all ignorance and evil prayers on the President life. The President shall not die but live and declare the works of the Lord. That is the pray mr. pastor you should be praying.

    Pastor Drake’s prayer tells his followers the kind of pastor he is. I will rather have his family (children) separated from him, before he indoctrinates them into his satanic worship.

    I will urge all members and visitors of the First Southern Bapt Church to read the following scriptures:

    Matt. 7:15
    Matt. 5:38 – 43
    Matt. 7:1 – 5

    After concluding this self study of the word of God, I can not believe you will sit in one of the peus of this church this coming Sunday.

  29. Kim says:

    Alan, please tell me where you found those ridiculous statements. How can you stand before a congregation and condemn someone, and not just that you wish death on the President of the United States. You are disgusting!!!!!! And I don’t what you are saying is funny, I think you are really ignorant.
