Anti-Gay Washington Pastor Ken Hutcherson Doubles Down on NOM Racism Accusations

Anti-Gay Washington Pastor Ken Hutcherson last week suggested NOM and its prominent allies are racist and excluded him from the fight against marriage equality in Washington state.

HutchersonSaid Hutcherson to the Christian Post: "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."

Hutcherson expanded on those allegations in an interview yesterday with Sirius radio host Michelangelo Signorile:

Hutcherson, a former Seattle Seahawks linebacker who has been the leading voice for evangelicals and against gay marriage in Washington, said that NOM sidelined him, and, when asked it if was because of racial bias, he replied, “You want a percentage between 1 and 100? About 90 percent.” He believes NOM's leaders, Brian Brown and Maggie Gallagher, saw him as too extreme. “We had some of the national organizations come in here and they wanted to do it their way,” he explained. "They wanted to choose their leadership. And because of that we had a very big division of unity in the state brought on the national organizations, and we never recovered from that.”

  5. Some people assume it was bigotry that made these assholes lose.

    I am on the side of "God has spoken" and told these bigots to sit down and STFU.
