- Wiley Drake: Drake, a 2nd Vice President of the National Southern Baptist Church, was caught again illegally using his tax-exempt pulpit for partisan political activity (this time endorsing Mike Huckabee for president) by Americans United for Separation of Church and State. In response Drake calls on his followers for "Imprecatory Prayer" (i.e. a curses) against AU and specifically against the contacts named in the complaint, mentioning Psalm 109, which clearly calls for the death of one's enemies.
Will one of his followers be inspired by God to directly implement these curses? God does work in mysterious ways, dontcha know.
