Jesus Says: Stop Snitchin
As a pastor, former national Southern Baptist leader, radio talk show host, author, and political expert, Wiley S. Drake is something of a modern day Renaissance man, except in how he rejects all tenets of the Enlightenment. When he recently used Church letterhead -- and his talk show, broadcast directly from his First Southern Baptist Church of Buena Park, CA -- to endorse former fatty Mike Huckabee for president, some atheist jerks at Americans United for Separation of Church and State ratted him out to the IRS, who are now investigating the church's tax-exempt status. Drake responded as any good Christian would: by imploring his congregation to pray for the immediate, painful deaths of his enemies.
"God says to pray imprecatory prayer against people who attack God's church," he said. "The Bible says that if anybody attacks God's people, David said this is what will happen to them. . . . Children will become orphans and wives will become widows."
Imprecatory prayers are alternately defined as praying for someone's misfortune, or an appeal to God for justice.
"Let his days be few; and let another take his office," the prayer reads. "Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow."
God is not expected to answer Drake's prayer, though, as He's supporting His Son Barry Hussein Obama in the 2008 election.
