There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.
If everyone seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Wiley Drake is a California-based Southern Baptist minister and talk radio host. He was the vice-presidential candidate on the American Independent Party ticket in 2008 with Alan Keyes, and the second vice president of the Southern Baptist Convention in 2006-2007. Drake has drawn controversy for his use of imprecatory prayer which involved cursing Barack Obama and others. His battle to prove that President Barack Obama was not born in the USA was heard in court at a preliminary hearing in January 2010. It was, as all other cases filed by birthers, thrown out, possibly with judicial sighing and eye-rolling at some point.
Praying for the President to die
Wiley Drake is somewhat less extreme than Fred Phelps.
