Washington State Pastor Ken Hutcherson wants a word back he thinks belongs to straight people.
Antioch Bible Church Pastor Ken Hutcherson, who is also the official spokesperson of the Stand For Marriage Coalition, has penned a column for WND.com in which he says he’d like to “shout loud and proud” that he is gay.
Hutcherson says, “I am the gayest man I know.”
“My frustration is that some groups have taken words and symbols away from the Church and from society in general. When I say I’m ‘gay,’ what I mean is that I am happy, that I am joyful and that I love people. That is precisely what a Christian ought to be so in my opinion we just need to be as gay as we can.”
He also wants rainbows back.
“Rainbows used to mean something very different than they do today,” Hutcherson and [ministry leader James]Hansen wrote on Antioch’s website. “It used to be understood as the sign God put in the sky to remind us that even when He’s angry about sin, He’d never again destroy the earth with a global flood. But of course, that’s not what most people associate a rainbow with today.”
