Hutch threatens. Again.

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 5-111Ken Hutcherson is once again trafficking in the mentality he seems to know best: BULLYING.  Check out this Hutch-issued statement that Peter LaBarbera has posted onto his site:

This is Dr. Kenneth Hutcherson responding to a donation made by the Democratic National Committee to the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force.  I first heard from my good friend and fellow conservative, Rush Limbaugh that this had taken place. This has been confirmed by Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth.  These are two sources that I trust and believe.

“The DNC gave at least $2,500 to the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force so they could award Guy Baldwin, an advocate of sadomasochism and “consensual slavery.”

“As an African American leader and Pastor, I insist the DNC demand its money back.  How can the DNC say they stand for African Americans and at the same time support a perversion that belittles and makes a mockery of our suffering under slavery?

“We must make sure we stand against all forms of tyranny and call out anyone who supports this agenda.”

Dr. Kenneth L. Hutcherson

Senior Pastor

Antioch Bible Church

Yea, Ken?  You're "demanding" they take back their donation?  And what will you do if the DNC doesn't comply, take your (non-leather) toys and go home?  Cast a pox on the DNC's house?  Threaten to not vote Democratic (as if you've given that idea even one scintilla of thought)?

Seriously, brother:  MicrosoftMt. Si HighGays in general.  What in your DNA tells you that the good, Christian thing to do is further strong-arm the community that has been tyrannized for years?!  And what makes you think that gays and liberals are the wimpy kids on the playground who will fork over their lunch money if you even look at them in an intimidating way?!  Because the truth is that we are TIRED of being bullied, and sick of seeing the wages that this tough guy "I'm the decider" type of mentality has wrought upon society.  We are done with having rational intellect bulldozed by aggressive unenlightenment!

So Ken: You want gays and others who don't fit your societal ideal to just up and disappear? Well then you're going to have to use your brain to demonstrate why, exactly, a free and respectful society should be one in which certain people of faith set the mandate for everyone else.  Your browbeating brawn scares us not!

Your thoughts

I think it is important to note that "slavery" in this context is part of a consensual sex game. It bears no resemblance in any way, shape or form to the legalized slavery of the 18th - 19th centuries.

Well, CPT, playing the inappropriate victim card is Hutch's bag. He did the same thing recently when a teacher at Mt. Si high compared the injustices against gays with the injustices against African-Americans. Hutch tried to make it sound like the teacher was suggesting we bring back slavery:

If i have to read about this man playing the race card for pointless and bigoted reasons i may i have to scream.

One of the most powerful tactics in modern debate: "I refuse to talk about my opponents argument, because he is a biggoted racist who wants to bring back slavery. And if you agree with him, so are you. You dont want to bring back slavery, therefore you do not agree with him, correct?"

Works just as well as a way to silence any criticism of religion ("Adulterers should be stoned in accordance with the Koran, and if you disagree you are a dangerous Islamophobe.") or in politics ("Universial health care is a socialist ideal, and socialism is un-american. Anyone who supports universial health care hates America.") or in social issues ("Everyone knows that people who look at porn are likely to rape children. We need to ban all porn and sexually suggestive imagery. Anyone who disagrees with me supports child-rape.")

Hutcherson's comments were plagiarized from the words of Peter LaBarbera. You would think that if Hutcherson really cared, he could at least write his own letter...

"Adulterers should be stoned in accordance with the Koran, and if you disagree you are a dangerous Islamophobe."

Why do you use the Koran as your example? The Torah and the Bible say the same thing.

"Consensual slavery" - This term makes no sense. It is a complete oxymoron.

Bondage as a sexual fetish may not be Hutch's cup of tea, but as CPT_Doom said, it has NOTHING to do with African-American slavery. By Hutch's reasoning, if a husband and wife role-play "boss and secretary" in the bedroom they are belittling victims of sexual harrasment.

Also - DNC gives money to NGLTF? What a shocker. I guess Hutch didn't realize before that the Dems supported the gays.

This is an example of the terrible problems caused by religion.

Perhaps Dan, the poster illustrating their point is more familiar with The Koran. Are you passing judgment upon them for being Islamic, having knowledge of Islam or for expressing what you perceive to be anti-Islamic comments?
BTW Dan, please note the tone of their argument, "Adulterers should be stoned in accordance with the Koran, and if you disagree you are a dangerous Islamophobe" Comparions are comparisons- not a "bad" on the part of the poster- perhaps you have misinterpreted or misunderstood their point of view.

The latter.

Well, I just checked out Suricou Raven's blog. Just as I suspected, she is anti-Muslim.
