Homobigot pastor Hutcherson doesn't know when to quit

Do you remember Rev. Ken Hutcherson, of Antioch Bible Church in Redmond, Washington? He led the charge to threaten a national boycott of Microsoft if it supported the statewide initiative (H.B. 1515) to add sexual orientation to its civil rights laws (see earlier posts). Microsoft caved and then later reversed its support.

To make a long story short, the measure passed and put into law, but Hutcherson, a former NFL football player and head of the anti-gay Mayday for Marriage outfit, cannot accept defeat.

A Redmond pastor opposed to new civil rights protections for gays and lesbians has filed an initiative to the Legislature to overturn them, but it’s not likely to go anywhere since he would have to gather nearly 225,000 signatures by the end of the month.

…The initiative, which has not yet been given a number and whose language has not yet been reviewed by the state code reviser’s office, would remove the sexual orientation aspect of the state ban on discrimination in housing, employment, insurance and credit.

Why is this man obsessed with discriminating against gay folks? If he’s so concerned about it, what is he doing living in an area that clearly has decided his brand of prejudice isn’t welcome.

Pastor Ken’s also the author of a scintillating piece of work, The Safety of Natural Order, Same-Sex “Marriage” is an Injustice to Children. A snippet:

Can anyone argue against the fact that divorce of a mother and a father has proven to destroy families? Then what do we think changing the traditional view of a man and a women will do to children and the family? That change will be catastrophic. Proverbs 23:9-11 is a warning not to speak truth to a fool, not to remove old land- marks and provoke the fatherless, for God will plead their case. In the Holy name of God we must not allow same-sex marriage to destroy God’s natural order for the family.

A family lead by two women or two men statistically will prove to be the beginning of the worse disaster that will fall on the family since Cain got angry and killed his brother Abel in Genesis.

H/t Daniel.
