House Blender puts the pressure on homo-bigot Rev. Hutcherson

House Blender Karen in Kalifornia is doing her own bit of activism on the Microsoft bigotry front. Here’s her email, asking folks to join in:

I decided to take another direction in protesting MSFT’s pulling it’s corporate support from Washington states anti-discrimination bil….I have contacted the Lake Washington School Board Members and asked them why they allow a church congregation which actively opposes the school board’s own Human Dignity Policy. Lake Washington High School is where Rev. Hutcherson of Antioch Bible Church holds its Sunday services in the high school gym. Please join me in this effort. Contact info is all below:

Lake Washington School Districts Human Dignity Policy

“Recognizing and valuing that we are a diverse community, it is part of our mission to provide a positive, harmonious environment in which diversity is respected and encouraged.

A major aim of education in the Lake Washington School District is the development of a commitment to the core values of a democratic society. In accordance with this aim, the district strongly emphasizes a core value of mutual human respect for each person regardless of individual differences and/or, characteristics including for example, but not necessarily limited to race, gender, age, disability, physical condition, sexual orientation, ethnic group or religion. We expect this value to be manifested in the daily behaviors of students, staff and volunteers.

Diversity statement on Lake Washington HS web site. Note no mention of sexual orientation:
“A major aim of education in the Lake Washington School District is the development of a commitment to the core values of a democratic society.

Also interesting, but might only apply to employees:
USE OF DISTRICT EQUIPMENT/FACILITIES FOR PRIVATE GAIN
Existing state statutes and regulations prohibit the use of public property and facilities for individual gain. As such, the requests for use of school facilities clearly prohibit the use of such facilities for personal or private reasons. We will carefully review all requests to ensure that such use is not in violation of district policy and state laws and regulations.
