I just heard this phrase for the first time today and I’m not sure I understand it. Are Christians really allowed to pray for bad things to happen to people they don’t like? Apparently a Baptist pastor, Wiley Drake, is calling for people to pray to do battle against an organization called Americans United for Separation of Church and State. Since churches are tax-exempt, in theory they’re not supposed to endorse political candidates. Wiley apparently did, on stationery for his church, so Americans United complained to the IRS. Here’s his statement:
Is this really considered okay by Christians?
Update: Where are my blog manners? I heard about this via The Carpetbagger Report.
