Audio: Apparently there's an 'e' in Ken's li-brary
Speaking about the attempt to roll back domestic partnerships in Washington state, one of the area's most known anti-gays, the particularly strong-arm-equipped Pastor Ken Hutcherson, says the following about his side's biased playbook:
*Source: Marriage Battle Heats Up in Washington State [FOF]
The final chapter says you'll "win," Ken? Really? Because that's not at all what our advanced copies of the history books say.
Oh, oh, oh -- you must have the audiobook version, Mr. Hutch. Aha! That would explain why you would hear "you win," when the text actually asks of evangelicals on the subject of acceptance: "You? When?"
Don't feel bad -- it's an easy mistake to make. We'll feel free to lend you our copy of the book just as soon as you lend us your pledge to stay the hell out of our civil lives!
Strange that Evangelical equality opponents use eschatological imagery when talking about LGBT equality - If gay marriage is, in fact, a sign that the Apocalypse is nigh, shouldn't they be fighting to speed up the Second Coming by granting civil marriage to their gay brothers and sisters?

Anybody out there who still thinks that civil unions are a palatable alternative for our opponents is naive. They don't want to compromise at all.
Looking forward to the judge's ruling today on almost 39000 signatures that our side says is invalid because the petitions were not signed or were stamped with Stuckney's (sp?) name. I find it amusing that the AG said there is no law requiring petitions to be signed by the person distributing the position.
Follow the money, people. It wouldn't shock me if there was a circuitous trail of it leading to the AG and SoS.

Hutch is speaking church-talk there. He means that he's read "the last chapter" of the Bible, John's apocalyptic vision in the book of Revelation and it told him that the good guys win.
Of course, it also told him that there would be the destruction of a third of all civilization, that the oceans would turn to blood, and that there would be seven years of tribulation, so perhaps he defines "win" a little differently from me.

Timothy: I think he's likely using *the* book as a starting point, then jumping to the arrogant "pro-family" bible, which we all know puts them in the victory chair no matter the situation. Must be boring for them to have such a definitive script.
