Well that would take all day. Not that the church has the market cornered on ungodly beliefs and actions. Every religion I know of has its flaws.
But since this is a mostly Christian nation and many Christians sects especially those of the Evangelical modes like to pontificate loudly when it comes to certain “choice sins”, I am always amazed when a preacher like this one can…….
here it comes…..
wait for it…..
pray for the death of the president!
Now this is a little surprising to me but certainly not shocking. The fact that Rev. Drake – the little ball of hate said what he did is one thing. Neither Christianity in general nor the church specifically can be responsible for one preacher’s words.
The question I have is why is not every Church in and out of his peer group calling for this guy on the carpet? Why is he allowed to stand in the pulpit and preach the “Word of God”? Where is the leadership? Where is the righteous indignation?
And some folk like to say that the President’s election has made us post racial? There will be foxes and wolves in any organization. I get that. But the church has to police itself. And silence on the part of those who don’t believe Jesus is calling for the death of the president is just as harmful as an endorsement.
I believe it was a Christian who said something to the effect of,
“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men to do nothing.”
Personally, I tend to wonder how good the good men are these days who are leading the pulpits and allow one of their own to spew this kind of rhetoric.
