Praying that God will Kill the President
June 14, 2009
According to the Associated Baptist Press, Wiley Drake, former VP of the Southern Baptist Convention, is convinced that God was behind the murder of abortion provider George Tiller. He hopes that God won’t stop there.
Drake said June 2 on "The Alan Colmes Show" that unless Obama repents, he is praying that God will kill the president.
Where does Drake derive his view that God will bring "death and misfortune on his enemies"?
"It is in the Bible, and we are proud to say as Southern Baptists that we believe the Book," he said. "You’ve got to believe the whole Book, brother, or you don’t believe any of it."

“You’ve got to believe the whole Book, brother, or you don’t believe any of it.”
Obviously, he hasn’t read much of the book. No sane person can countenance many(most) of the behaviors demanded by the “good book” much less put them into action. As a matter of fact, if Drake even begins to implement some of the imprecations he advocates then he must be restrained by the authorities as a danger to civilization.

Aside from the fact that Wiley Drake has just strengthened the argument for not being religious his idea of praying for the death of Obama is fundamentally flawed anyway. Can anybody point to one time in history that simply trying to kill everyone who disagrees with you has worked in the long run? At best all it ever ends up doing is causing more death and then not solving the problem. Isn’t “more death” what anti-abortionists are trying to avoid? I’m anti-abortion myself and I make no apologies for that but this guy’s comments even seem stupid to me.

I think you mean fundamentalist Christians CAN be very very dangerous. I know fundamentalists that would not hurt a fly. Even when I told them I believe in evolution! I hate how people think it’s OK to generalise about others as long as you do it based on religion. Try basing a generalisation on race or disability and see if people are as accepting. And before you say “but people don’t choose their race or a disability” people don’t choose beliefs either. They choose how they act based on those beliefs perhaps but they cannot choose beliefs themselves. Just like an athiest person can pretend he or she believes in God as much as they want but still not actually believe, a fundamentalist person cannot choose to not believe in their deity or deities or Bible in this instance. Long story short, the way you act might make you dangerous but simply believing in something doesn’t have to.

He may have read the whole book, but obviously he was lacking in the ability to comprehend the irrational inconsistencies, horror and cruelty therein.
