Republican Spokesman Praying for Obama's Death

After celebrating the murder of Dr. George Tiller, saying it was an answer to prayers, the good Rev. Wiley Drake (A Southern Baptist Church preacher) has now revealed that he is also praying for the death of the President. Yep. Rev. Wiley Drake (ironically a self proclaimed pro-life advocate) is praying for the death of President Obama.

According to the Associated Baptist Press - On June 2nd, 2009, on "The Alan Colmes Show" Drake commented (paraphrased):
that unless Obama repents, he is praying that God will kill the president. Drake said he believes that is what happened to slain abortion provider George Tiller, who was shot to death while attending church in Wichita, Kan., on Sunday, May 31.
In the Fox interview, Drake, pastor of First Southern Baptist Church in Buena Park, Calif., called Obama "a usurper" and claimed he is "not an American-born citizen." Challenged for referring to the president as "B. Hussein Obama," Drake denied calling him that because it makes him sound like a Muslim. "I call him that because it's his name," Drake insisted.

The hits just keep on coming from the far right.
I haven't heard anything forceful or convincing from the Conservative religious establishment or the Republican political establishment that would indicate that they want to distance themselves from Drake or any of the other hate mongers and extremists. There has been no serious pushback at all from other leading Conservatives/Republicans against these kinds of incidents. I take their silence as a backdoor endorsement....whether they actively endorse these sentiments or not. The silence is deafening.

But at least one Pastor is speaking out.

Hear the comments from the Fox Interview:
