Hutch's war on gayness gets visual aid

by Jeremy Hooper

Rev. Ken Hutcherson has sent the following email to his friends and congregants:

Picture 7-96

Yes, that's right -- the same Ken Hutcherson who claims that he and his family are being victimized because of his anti-gay beliefs (which he would of course refer to as "pro-family") is now declaring an all-out WAR on those who wish to foster understanding and acceptance for LGBT people. Because, ya know, [begin disgusted sarcasm] it's only bullying if it's directed towards socially conservative people of faith. If it's directed towards gay people, then it's nothing but "morality."[/end disgusted saracasm] ::sigh::

Hutch says he wants to "take back" the schools, but what does that even mean? Take them back to where, the "good ol' days" when smear the queer was an even more popular sport than it is now?! Take them towards the sort of mentality that will lead to the deaths of even more gay kids!? Or should we go back even further and incorporate the sort of backwards educational thinking that would force Hutcherson's kids to attend a separate school?! At one point does he wish to draw the regressive line?!

The truth is that this "war" against social progress is not one in which both sides are deserving equal credence. Plain and simple: The troops in Hutcherson's army are aiming for a world that does not include gay people. Everyone has the right to line up behind Brigadier Genera Hutcherson if they wish. They do not, however, have control over where history will look back upon their unwarranted hostility.

Your thoughts

I think we should take him even further back, to the ancient greece. Homosexuality was seen as a the way to go...

Even beeing 'ro, I would probably consider giving him some manly attention anyways, since it's what polite society did back in the day...

Pastor Hutch has a very short memory. Here's a man, a member of a minority group bashed not too many years (in some places the bashing continues) ago by racist whites, now is himself, a basher against a different minority group. If one remembers back to the days of separate but equal, racists feared the mixing of the races in the schools more than any other thing. Pastor Hutch, get yourself a white robe and pointed cap when you preach in church against the glbt community.

Kind of sad how that guy would get so angry at such a lovely pic that does nothing but encourage acceptance of all couples.

BTW, I faved that picture on deviantart :D

Take the school back to the days... what? -- when white folks lynch black folks for attending the same school as white kids (for that matter, for attending school at all)? When dinosaurs roam the earth?

Anyways, love that poster! I want it on a T-shirt!

Since he is "giving us shit", why don't we all give some back? I encourage everyone to send a piece of dog shit to:

Antioch Bible Church

But Lucas, clearly dinosaurs ARE roaming the earth. Look at all the red states.
