Pastor Wiley Drake Arrested in D.C. While Praying, Ignoring Christ's Command Not to Do So in Public

Pastor Wiley Drake of the First Southern Baptist Church of Buena Park, who prays for President Barack Obama and members of Congress to die, was arrested outside the White House on Friday while praying for Chinese activist Chen Guangcheng, who had reportedly just left the U.S. Embassy and had been taken to a hospital.

Drake reportedly had been kneeling with other believers next to a fence when security officers repeatedly told them to move.


Orange County Register

reports that Drake, who had been in town for the

National Day of Prayer

, said he would do it again, and compared his, uh, suffering, to that of what Guangcheng suffered in jail. 

He then drowned his suffering in lobster bisque at Kinkead's. Kidding. 

Lesson learned: read the damn Sermon the Mount, preacher.

"And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you." 

Looks like Drake got his reward.
