Quote# 64242

Cable channel MSNBC host Keith Olbermann gave [Wiley] Drake more exposure this week when he named Drake the "World's Worst Person." In video aired on the station on Monday, Olbermann cited Drake's admission that he prays for the death of President Barack Obama as his basis for the selection.

Drake said he has prayed for Obama's death, though "98 percent everything I pray about him is very positive."

However Drake also said he's directed to pray for ill against his enemies by Psalm 109, which asks for punishment for evildoers, and even considers such prayers a "duty."

"If anybody has a problem with the prayer we're praying, they need to take it up with the man who wrote it, because it's not me," Drake said.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that Pastor Drake's definition of "evildoers" is vastly different from mine.
I'm also going to guess that, although he professes to be a Christian, he hasn't read what Jesus had to say about your enemies and loving them.
Just a crazy hunch...

Yeah, but nobody knows who wrote Psalm 109. I think we can safely say they're dead, though.

Fortunately, prayers don't work.

@Zorro:

Unfortunately, if he dies, even if it's because of the most natural thing in the world, those murderous nutjobs will think it was because of them.

As long as they fervently pray and do nothing else, I'll be happy as pig in the mud. Pray fundies! God will hear! But if you hear the voices that tell you to kill Obama or your other enemies yourself, that's Satan's voice and don't listen to it!

"If anybody has a problem with the prayer we're praying, they need to take it up with the man who wrote it"

Which one? And whose version?

I am not impressed. I am even less impressed about the lame attempt of Mr. Beemer down here.

A denomination born to defgend slavery is praying for the death of the first black president? SHOCKING!

I have to agree with Mr. Olbermann on this one.

Wiley Drake is a danger.

@ Frank Beemer: please all, do not beseach my prayers for you.

Isn't it 'beseech'? Pray for proper grammar first.

I hear god nearly everynight!

So, the voices you hear in your head are GAWD? They have meds for that now-a-days

Wasn't Lucifer angel of light, the first angel, the one that came into being when god said "Let there be light"? Is that the light you want us all to see? Or would you preffer the light of reason?

Nah, I think we'll just keep the pressure on you since you're enough of a douchebag to follow the words of a retarded, 2000 year dead, misogynistic sociopath.

However Drake also said he's directed to pray for ill against his enemies by Psalm 109

But Psalm 109 describes enemies as people who "remembered not to show mercy, but persecuted the poor and needy man, that he might even slay the broken in heart."

That sounds more like Drake than Obama.

Sure, 98 percent of what you pray about him is positive, but you're still praying for his death. I'm going to groom your dog and then run him over with my car.

Bah! I submitted this a week ago and it never made it onto the quotes page.

I guess Drake's KJV doesn't have Romans:

13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
13:2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.

or 1 Timothy:

2:1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
2:2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
2:3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

"fucking shit why does it always do THIS!"

I just love your quaint, folksy, religious talk. That, together with the unaffected pleasure, shown in your other comments, that you have in communicating the bizarre rituals of your tribe's religious rites is most fascinating.
