Homobigot Hutch goes after anti-discrimination law in Washington State

Rev. Ken Hutcherson, pastor of Antioch Bible Church in Redmond, who bleated about boycotting Microsoft if it supported an anti-discrimination bill in Washington State (it eventually passed in 2006), is now trying to get the measure repealed.
He couldn’t stand the idea of banning discrimination against gays and lesbians in housing, employment, credit and insurance in the state. Perhaps he should consider moving south. (365gay):
The language of the proposed referendum must be reviewed by the state code reviser’s office. If it gains approval Hutcherson would be able to begin collecting the signatures of 224,800 registered voters needed to place the question on the ballot.
Hutcherson has until July 6 to collect the names.
The statewide gay civil rights law took effect last June after another attempt to overturn it failed. Supporters of that attempt were unable to collect the required number of names.
Hutch, the head of “Mayday for Marriage” (and the author of Before All Hell Breaks Loose: Preparing for the Coming Perilous Times) says that Christians who disagree with him on marriage equality were “evangelly-fish” because they lacked a “spiritual backbone.” Did I mention that in his office he has a photo autographed by his “good friend” Rush Limbaugh.
Jerry also weighed in.
