More on homo-bigot Ken Hutcherson
Bill Gates’s bedmate, Rev. Ken Hutcherson, speaks to his Antioch Bible Church congregation yesterday in the Lake Washington High School gymnasium, where the church meets. The non-denominational church has more than 3,500 members.
Rev. Ken Hutcherson, who planned a boycott of $30+ billion dollar Microsoft if it supported an anti-discrimination bill in Washington State, has an interesting background. He earns bonus points for being from my wife’s home state (the bigot is from PCB-contaminated Anniston, AL.
Interestingly, the dumb*ss quips that the toxic dump is the reason “he acts differently.” Well, that’s an understatement. He has perfect wingnut credentials. (SeattlePI):
He was labeled a bigot a year ago yesterday for organizing Mayday for Marriage, a rally at Safeco Field meant to uphold marriage as a God-designed union between a man and a woman. The event drew more than 20,000 people. Five months later, he spearheaded a similar gathering that brought more than 100,000 to the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
Hutcherson said Christians who disagreed with him were “evangelly-fish” because they lacked a “spiritual backbone.” When people find out what the Bible really says, he said, “they start a new denomination because (they) want God to fit them, instead of them fitting God.”
…Hutcherson said he’s just following the Bible and “God’s definition of marriage” — one man, one woman. Homosexuals can know and love Jesus, he said, “but they’re being disobedient to him.”
His allies include the Rev. Joe Fuiten of Cedar Park Assembly in Bothell, president of Washington Evangelicals for Responsible Government, a Christian lobbying group.
“We pretty much see eye to eye, though I do not follow the same strategy,” Fuiten said. “He’s probably more in-your-face than any pastor on the Eastside and probably in Seattle.”
Fuiten said he holds a high opinion of Hutcherson because of his passion, loyalty, fearlessness and “clear sense of morality.”
…His mentors included Tim LaHaye, co-author of the best-selling “Left Behind” series of novels about those left behind at the rapture. Hutcherson has written two books of his own, including “Before All Hell Breaks Loose,” intended as a wake-up call to every church and believer.
…His office is filled with photos, jerseys — one autographed by his good friend Rush Limbaugh — stuffed animals, a carved eagle, bottles of hot sauce and other gifts from the past 30 years.
