Well this is just a wonderful message from Pastor Ken Hutcherson — the man who performed Rush Limbaugh‘s marriage and who warned the NFL against gay players who would only be able to think about showering with jocks — about the risks of seeing DOMA die. Wait at least until he counts off the entire list of ramifications, where you’ll realize the effects are either mistruths (“Enable gays to officially marry,” which the repeal of DOMA would actually not do) or complete lies (“Outlaw the church from speaking openly against gay marriage,” which will lead to the jailing of pastors like him, which would actually require the repeal of DOMA and the First Amendment). Luckily Htuchersen and “30 to 40 different ministries” are forming a “coalition,” backed by the Family Research Council, to oppose the end of DOMA. By embedding this video, are we as bad as The Stranger?
That ugly pastor just WISHES he would go to jail so some burly prisoner would make him his bitch
Without having read the caption, I just looked at ole chocolate teddy bear’s pic and knew he was a big ole ‘mo. The lady doth protest too much, methinks!
If the Pastor doesn’t like secular government .. um .. GTFO of my country! Go join some theocratic nation like Saudi Arabia. And pay your taxes, you fat, lazy leech. Man up and pay some damn taxes. No more of this tax expemption for religion bullshit. Religion is a business and it’s politics, so none of this tax exempt my ass. It’s time to pay your taxes, Preacher.
I wonder if he could explain why none of his predictions have come true in the various places that allow same-sex marriage…
He won’t go to jail simply for refusing to perform a same-sex marriage ceremony, and can’t be jailed for merely lying or being mistaken – the first amendment gives you the right to make a fool of yourself in public.
Whether he is lying or just ignorant, in fact what Eric Holder said about DOMA is that the justice department would no longer defend Section 3, which deals with federal recognition of same-sex marriages. This has no effect on Section 2, which allows states to not recognize same-sex marriages from other states.
He using a FUD argument (the “Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt” advertising tactic Microsoft became famous for in trying to squash other company’s products, although Microsoft was not the only company resorting to such tactics).
@B: Yes! So much of the hýsteria about marriage equality is about the dang wedding, not the actuall marriage.
Turn to any “pro-family” blog & see as many comments about pastors/preachers or priests being “forced” to marry the gays as you will comments about actual marital rights.
Clearly, the fright-wing refuses to look at the actual laws/ bills about SSM.
You DID remember to praise Elton John for his participation in Limbaugh’s wedding, right?
After all, he’d have us believe he’s not just another money-grubbing whore who’d perform at the wedding of Pol Pot and Betty Buckley if the money was right, he’s a goddamn humanitarian!
He’s an ARTISTE!
Just ask him. He’ll tell you.
1) He looks gay.
2) Since when did the sin of gluttony get voided?
What is DOMA? Why should I have to Google something to get through an article? Is this journalism?
is this the same kind of empty promise that Rush Blimpbaugh made about Obama being elected????
@Jon: DOMA = Defense of Marriage Act: federal law which currently prohibits Federal recognition of same-sex marriage (SSM). States may still pass laws allowing SSM or civil unions but those laws do not extend to federal benefits, e.g., taxes, Medicare, & other legal issues.
I hope that helps.
DOMA is short for DOMAss .. a type of gathering storm that is very scary.
Oh nice, defend the religion that made your ancestors slaves wooooooo!
Not sure where you’re getting your information, but I can assure you that clergy pay income taxes.
You don’t have to have a degree or an IQ above room temperature to be a religious leader. Anyone can call themselves a minister or a pastor. Everyone posting here can become a religious leader simply by proclaiming themselves so. Also, certain forms of brain damage cause people to become hyper-religious; that’s a scientific fact.
Once again a person who was formerly discriminated against, now discriminating againt another minority. So much for Civil Rights!
Are they cum stains on his beard?
@B: Actually, Intel became famous for using FUD long before Microsloth existed. The term was created by Gene Amdahl, an ex-Intel employee who founded the Amdahl corporation to compete with them. He used it to describe Intel’s marketing strategy.
@Steve: Sad part is, at least one of his predictions DID come true: A school district in Massachusetts refused to allow parents to pull their kids out of a lesson about homosexuality. However, the parents do have the right to homeschool their kids or put them in private school.
@jason: That is without a doubt your best comment ever. ROFLMAO
Maybe Rush provided the DNA sample.
So any bets on how long it will be before some woman comes out and talks about how he molested her and her sisters when she was 7, or he gets caught with some underaged male prostitute?
Just a prediction.
I’d prefer that he just off himself and go straight to hell.
@Jon: John, the Defense of Marriage Act was passed in 1996 and signed by your ever loving Democrat, Bill Clinton. Have you been living under a rock for 15 years?
There’s something about him that reminds me of…..Tyler Perry, and Bishop Eddie Long, and Lindsey Graham, and Charlie Crist…….
No. 18 · Riker wrote, “@B: Actually, Intel became famous for using FUD long before Microsloth existed.” Didn’t remember Intel’s history on that but of course, Microsoft never had any qualms about taking over someone else’s ideas and ending up owning those ideas as far as the general public knows.
“@Steve: Sad part is, at least one of his predictions DID come true: A school district in Massachusetts refused to allow parents to pull their kids out of a lesson about homosexuality.”
That was used as an argument in favor of Proposition Eight even though California law explicitly forbids that from happening (the law in Massachusetts differs from the one in California). Also, the California Supreme Court ruling that allowed same-sex marriages until Proposition Eight passed explicitly stated that no religious organization could be forced to perform a same-sex marriage ceremony that violated the organization’s religious beliefs (citing relevant laws or precedents).
