NOM Hosting Pastor Who Literally Has Prayed To God For The Death Of President Obama

NOM, the National Organization For Marriage, will be hosting a pastor at their anti-marriage equality rally this month who literally has been praying to God for the death of President Barack Obama.

Southern Baptist pastor Wiley Drake, 69, is best-known for his 2009 interview with liberal political commentator Alan Colmes, during which he admitted he indeed was praying to God for President Obama to die:

“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 their list.”

“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.”

Jeremy Hooper at Good As You reports:

This morning, I noticed that Mr. Drake is promoting NOM’s upcoming “March For Marriage” on his Facebook wall:


So okay, whatever. NOM has no control over who promotes its stuff. Sure, it’s insightful that a pastor like Drake is itching to be involved in NOM’s cause, but you can’t really connect a simple promotion back to NOM. I mean, it’s not like NOM reached out to Mr. Drake over anything.

Except for the fact that NOM totally did reach out to Drake. Check this out. What follows are email exchanges in which this very same Wiley Drake commits to showing up and bringing his supporters to the NOM march—a commitment for which Allegra Herburt-Hewell, one of the organizers behind the NOM march (she’s also an employee of Robby’s George’s American Principles Project), thanks Drake before offering further assistance. Mr. Drake posted these exchanges to his public Facebook wall:


Of course, Drake has now removed those posts from his Facebook wall.

Head over to Hooper’s blog to read the rest of his thoughts on the issue.


It’s important to note that Drake is a big-time birther, and has a rather interesting interpretation of the bible. Supposedly, it requires him to pray for President Obama’s death, and the death of his family.

I can't wait to be there! I want to get my picture taken with some of these losers before they have to take their crap underground. Once the SCOTUS rules on DOMA these @ss holes will soon find themselves next to the KKK and others who believe in discrimination and hate.
There is no room in America for this behavior and beliefs. It is mean and hateful against people they don't know from reasons they have all wrong.

Filth monger plain and simple. Take your filth elsewhere Drake. Satan is looking for an assisstant. I cannot believe these people call it church and themselves Christians. God would never condone this and Drake, I doubt he talks to the son of the devil, you

I wonder why he is being accredited with the title preacher if he is defying Christ the head of his church. We are taught to love our enemy, render unto caesar what's caesar's. no where does it say pray for the death of a president or any other human being. All he's doing is clinging to the power of the old testament which was broken by Christ. Interesting. Perhaps one day people will stand up to him and remind him about what Christ said about pharisees?

Well, his prayers may actually be answered…after a fashion. All prayers rely upon chance occurrences for their fulfillment. A study was done of seriously ill patients who were prayed for or not to the result that those prayed for died in greater numbers. If a prayer results in positive outcomes, those praying can claim a "miracle," but if the prayer fails, the answer is always, "It was God's will that he/she died." Then there is that great fall-back, "God works in mysterious ways." I am reminded of the ancient South Sea island tribe whose chieftan expired of old age or some other natural malady, and because the death occurred at a total solar eclipse and there was a bumper crop at harvest, the next time there was a total solar eclipse the chieftan did not die, so they killed him anyway. All miracles depend upon post hoc reasoning. To attribute divine interference in any natural (human) activity is simply delusional.
