Anti-Gay Pastor Ken Hutcherson Says Equally Anti-Gay NOM Too Much Like The GOP, 'Old And White'


Virulently anti-gay preacher Ken Hutcherson has been increasingly vocal in his disdain of "sissified" discrimination groups that he says are too soft on gay people, including the National Organization for Marriage.

Now Hutcherson is saying that NOM and their prominent allies are racist. From Christian Post.

[Hutcherson went] as far as to accuse some of the outside leadership of racism, and felt they were excluding him because he was African-American.

"When I knew my involvement was going to generate controversy, I offered to step back and suggested others who were on the front lines do so as well for the sake of unity. They refused, leaving me as the odd man out. If you look at them, they were all the same color with the same moderate views. It just didn't make sense why they would not include a person of color who was willing to fight."

"I believe there are conservatives of all colors, but the leadership from NOM, Focus and Mission Public Affairs, wanted to run being a moderate campaign where everyone felt warm and fuzzy. But we know that sin is never satisfied and always wants more. These guys just looked and acted too much like the GOP – old and white."

NOM big-wig Brian Brown called Hutcherson's comments "absurd and reckless" and "not true." "Pastor Hutcherson wanted to work on an initiative and not a referendum which we thought was the best method," Brown claimed.

So what about those cynical attempts to play on racial divides to weaken progressive groups? Was that not racist?

  1. Fantastic! They're cannibalizing each other now.

  2. These groups come on our boards to constantly pin us against each other with various fake gays against lesbians, and blacks against white and hispanic gays, and create division amongst our community. It's time they feel the karma of their twisted motives.

    To the gay community: stop fighting amongst each other and pointing out flaws about LGBT. We do that way too much, much to the amusement of NOM and it's members. Instead, celebrate our community...all members of it: fat, young, feminine, butch, black, white, tall, short. We are a BEAUTIFUL community who should be proud of our hard work. Our community goes through so much discrimination and pain, and yet look how so many of us are thriving in society. Be proud to be LGBT and let these bigots go at it with each other.

  3. "I offered to step back.... They refused, leaving me the odd man out."

    It looks like they took him up on his offer and he now complains that they did.

    BTW - the stock photo of him at Liberty University reminds me that I thought I saw an ad on this site for LU! Wouldn't they be proud.

  4. First off, the GLBT community SHOULD be proud of all our accomplishments as the poster above noted. What we did to progress our rights, and we did it, in the past 10 years is truly amazing. Don't let the trolls and divisive voices in our community attempt to get us to fight with one another. We've been successful because we've been galvanized.
    I see the destruction of groups like NOM being fighting within their circle. Case in point; this story.

  5. Wait. Isn't *this post* a "cynical attempt to play on racial divides" -- quite literally? As always, do try to apply to yourself the standards to which you hold others.

  7. I think the good pastor left out 'fat' and 'unattractive'.

    Posted by: Quibbling | Nov 18, 2012 6:36:23 PM

  8. Old, white. Fat, unattractive. And in some cases 'closeted' and 'self-loathing'.

  9. Poor Ken, he's finding out that the bigots at NOM are just that, bigots.

  10. These Christians cannibalizing each other is proof that religion is division, deceit, depravity, dominion, and destruction.

  12. Um… isn't hatred a sin too?

    Posted by: Andy | Nov 18, 2012 6:55:31 PM

  13. This site is infiltrated with trolls. Please stop passing advice to gays on here. It's mostly the same two self hating closeted gays (like Ratbastard, UFFDA, Jason) who post under different screenames who constantly hijack every thread. Their phobias of fem gays, and the gay community in general has resulted in MANY posters on here finding other amazing blogs we now visit more often (I used to visit this place daily now visit every few weeks)....these blogs are where all the well rounded, well adjusted, rational LGBT post now. Towleroad is officially not one of them anymore. The comments section on here are a total troll zone, and most everyone knows it.

  14. @ Duration & Convexity

    WELL SAID! The great contributors on here moved on. Towleroad and it being a troll magnet in the comments has thankfully had many of us move on. I still visit from time to time, but there's so many wonderful LGBT oriented news sites out there that are free off rants by Mary/UFFDA and Rick that I think it's silly to even ponder coming here. Andy jumped the shark when he refused to moderate the homophobic, racist, anti fem, anti everything posts we constantly see on here. Troll on.

  15. Tell us, Duration and Trojans fans, what other sites you recommend, please.

  16. Isn't the pot calling the kettle black in this instance? "absurd and reckless" and "not true." "Pastor Hutcherson wanted to work on an initiative and not a referendum which we thought was the best method," Brown claimed." Not only are the anti-gay-religious-loons in charge of the asylum, there are apparently various levels of anti-gay-religious-lunacy. To be called out by the NOM as being too extreme is the height of loony-toonyness. May Brian Brown live a miserable life, and Pastor Hutcherson seek therapy for his machismo disease.

  17. You mean there are other places I can troll on? Which ones?

    Posted by: UFFDA | Nov 18, 2012 7:14:03 PM

  18. UFFDA,

    I agree with the others, and have been suspect about you for a while. you've agreed with Jason, and Rick and Ratbastard (and all their other alias) on numerous times. You try to paint yourself as this voice of reason, but your attempts fail miserably when you align yourself with such deplorable posts as those characters exhibit. You try to pass it off as "contrast" and varrying opinions. No, when it comes to racism, you're either racist or not. And same holds true for homophobia. Your definition of homophobia is a gay person being killed for being gay, when there's MANY OTHER brackets of homophobia you, Jason, Ratbastard, and Rick can't seem to recognize. Why? because of your own degrees of homophobia. You have a lot of issues with the gay community, a community you admitedly have very limited exposure to, but sure are opinionated about. That's the epitome of ignorance

  19. UFFDA IS Jason.

    He is also "Mary"
    and ONE search of his handle on here, and his exchanges with them (shocking how when Mary appears with a post....WOOP! UFFDA just magically appears soon thereafter to brush her ignorant ego) reaffirms that. This site IS often polluted by trolls, and because people can muster up as many screenames as their troll like heart desires...what you have is four maybe five posters at most posting with 12 different names each, and creating a complete, choatic, dramatic, often ignorant mess. You don't find that in 99.99995 of gay blogs. They sniff out the whack jobs and have them kick rocks. Here? it's a reunion of all of them.

  20. You mean he's upset that he is being discriminated against for not being able to discriminate against others.


    LOL @ black people and their religion. They'll drink that kool aid without the ability to ever question it.
    and I say this as a biracial guy who knows and is around it.

  21. Guys, the best thing to do is to keep quiet. Rule No. 8 of politics is, "Don't interfere when the opposition is forming a circular firing squad."

    Posted by: Bill | Nov 18, 2012 7:34:08 PM

  22. is he really playing victim for not being able to victimize another demographic? you can't even make this stuff up.

    Posted by: Klien | Nov 18, 2012 7:34:46 PM

  23. This guy is a massive heart attack just waiting to happen. Be more concerned with your (fat @$$) health you monster, instead of the fact that gays are here to stay baby.
    On second thought, keep on eating those fried foods. Diabetes does an ignorant fools body good!

  24. Now he can go back to taking money from ignorant followers in the hood who can barely feed their families while this POS drives a Mercedes and his wife shops at Saks Fifth every day. Gotta love the black Church.

  25. He looks so gay- like leather daddy gay, with the little chin beard, ear studs- like I half imagine to look down and see boots and a whip.

    anyways- lol at the infighting. Please, continue bigots-;-)
