Was Drake Freelancing?

Last week we wrote a few posts about the Alliance Defense Fund’s “Pulpit Initiative,” which took place over the weekend, and Pastor Wiley Drake’s planned participation in the effort that so that he could endorse his own campaign

The event unfolded as planned and Drake was featured prominently in the press coverage but we’ve noticed something odd: the ADF has issued a press release trumpeting their efforts and accompanied it with a list of the 31 pastors [PDF] who took part and you’ll notice that Drake’s name is nowhere to be found.

Was Drake an official participant in the ADF’s scheme or was he just using it as an opportunity to get some press coverage for himself? 

It doesn’t really matter either way, because he and several of the other pastors who participated got what they wanted, now that Americans United has complaints filed against them.
