Washington State Senate Panel Advances Marriage Equality Bill

WashingtonYesterday, Washington state's marriage equality bill made it over its first hurdle in the Senate:

The Government Operations, Tribal Relations & Elections Committee approved the measure with a 4-3 vote Thursday. The bill is expected to head to a floor vote next, though a date has not yet been determined. Bills have been introduced in the House and Senate and both had public hearings on Monday. There are already enough votes to pass the measure both the House and the Senate.

So what does this mean?

HutchersonWell, it means we're one step closer to man-horse marriage, according to the spokesman for the largest anti-gay group opposing the bill, Pastor Ken Hutcherson.

"If this law is passed, what is going to happen? Now ask your guests in the studio. Do they believe that if they change the definition of marriage being between one man and one woman, what is going to stop two men one woman, two women one man, one man against a horse, one many with a boy, one man with anything?"

  1. The creep quotient of this Hutcherson primate is so loathsome and so high a Mars probe couldn't reach it. Truly, Christianity itself is made contemptible by such animals.

  2. He has a point: his wife is married to an ass.

  3. Dear Pastor Hutcherson: Same-sex marriage is legal in several states and a number of foreign countries, when does the man-horse marriage wave commence? If what you're saying is right, you'd think we would already be seeing evidence of this…

    PS: You're an idiot.

  4. Pastor Hutcherson, what about my marriage could *possibly* be any business of yours? I don't attend your church, as I have not yet elected to have a lobotomy. I stay out of your life, I'd appreciate it very much if you'd stay out of mine.

    P.S. You're a loon.

  5. We've moved from man/dog to man/horse now. YOU KNOW IT'S GETTING REAL

  6. This is scary, especially considering how minors and horses can sign legally binding contracts.

  8. Got a problem with this man? I do. Here's the contact information for his "church".
    I've emailed them already with the followiing, and I propose you all do the same:
    "Your comments comparing a gay person's inalienable right to love who they want with that of bestiality (marrying a horse) is utterly disgusting. I can't believe you refer to yourself as a man of the cloth. You're a sick, perverted individual and it's truly a sad state of affairs in America when people listen to the filth that spills from your mouth."

  9. Thank you Washington Democratic party for moving to join New York, Iowa, DC, and other states in protecting marriage. We are all praying for you to pass this pro-marriage bill.

  10. Pastor Hutcherson is talking man-horse marriage because obviously that's what he thinks about. He probably thinks about a lot of other animals too. Hopeful he's not acting on his thoughts, otherwise someone needs to call the SPCA and report him.
