Talk To Action is keeping a tally of nationally known Christian rightist pastors who pray for the death of the president of the United States. That count is now three: Steven Anderson, Wiley Drake, and Peter Peters.
Drake is a former vice president of the Southern Baptist Convention who also served as Alan Keyes’ American Independent Party running mate in the 2008 election. Drake prayed for the death of abortion doctor George Tiller and, after Tiller’s murder, declared that his prayers had been answered.
Peters leads the LaPorte, Colorado, Church of Christ and has been associated several times with white supremacists, including those who killed Jewish talk-radio host Alan Berg.
