The blatantly evil Rev. Ken Hutcherson is at it again. Two years ago, the Seattle area pastor and anti-gay crusader made national headlines when he called on the boycott of Microsoft for supporting a gay rights bill. Today the reverend leads 100 so-called "prayer warriors" outside a high school to protest the National Day of Silence that supports gay students.
Mount Si High School in Snoqualmie, Washington is one of over 7,300 K-12 schools observing GLSEN's 12th annual Day of Silence. "We send our kids there to get an education, not an indoctrination," Hutcherson told KING 5.
"It's personal," Mount Si principal Randy Taylor told the Seattle Times. "We embarrassed him at the Martin Luther King assembly. It's payback."
"Of course it's personal," Hutcherson concurred. "They embarrassed me and they embarrassed my daughter." The pastor's daughter, also a Mount Si student, helped organize the engagement.
The anti-gay rabble rouser was booed by students and faculty at the January event. At today's protests, "Rev. Hutcherson's crowd of 100 were kept separate from Day of Silence supporters by police; 50 held silent vigil before the start of the school day."
Only a small, little man would harbor a grudge against teenagers, especially those who promote tolerance. WWJD?
