Pastor Wiley Drake of Southern Baptist Convention running for president

Wiley Drake, elected in 2006 as second vice president of the Southern Baptist Convention as an everyman candidate representative of small-church pastors who sacrificed to travel to annual meetings and vote for conservative candidates during the “conservative resurgence” before he turned controversial for his practice of “imprecatory prayer,” is running for president of the United States.
Drake, 71, pastor of First Southern Baptist Church in Buena Park, Calif., said he decided to throw his hat in the ring after observing the operation of politics on Capitol Hill since 2000.

"It's time for the Judeo-Christian voice to be heard by our policy makers,” Drake said in a press release. “They can try to kick the word of God out of politics, but they will never stop the voice of God through 'We the People of the United States.' We are the People of His Presence."


In 2008 Drake ran for vice president with the American Independent Party as running mate of former Reagan official Alan Keyes. This time, Drake told the Gospel Herald, he is running without any party affiliation.
"The Democrats have done a lot of damage, but the Republicans have done almost as much,” Drake said. “Party politics have ruined this country. It's time we got back to our history of ministers of the Gospel running for office without a party."
Drake, an Arkansas native who supported Bill Clinton when he ran for governor in 1982, once garnered attention at annual meetings of the Southern Baptist Convention by making so many motions that bylaws were changed to prohibit any messenger from making a second motion during a business session unless no other previously unrecognized messenger is seeking the floor.
